Information Provider Upgrades Charting Technology with Enhanced Interface and Mobile Compatibility


The Client: A provider of data derived from filings and other disclosure documents

Users: Product management team

Regulatory filings serve as a valuable source of information for investors, enabling them to make informed investment decisions, assess risks, evaluate financial performance, and monitor the governance and compliance practices of the companies in which they invest. This information provider is a leader in helping institutional and retail investors uncover insights from these documents, offering the distribution of company data and public filings for equities, mutual funds, and other publicly traded assets.

Serving some of the leading financial portals and data providers in the marketplace today, the company adds value by presenting data in a form users can ingest and use to make educated decisions. The company saw a need to upgrade its existing charting capabilities as clients began to demand sleek new interfaces with mobile capabilities. The product management team knew this would require a significant effort, particularly given that charting was not one of their core competencies. They decided to pursue finding a provider with a white-label graphic solution and expertise in financial data to meet their client's demands and maintain their competitive advantage.

“We were impressed with ChartIQ. They were the right partner to help us build a more dynamic charting system for mobile devices.”
— Director of Analytics

Pain Points  
The client's Director of Analytics expressed that “we had two chart formats on different product offerings. One was static and the other was flash based. We knew it would take significant effort to enhance either into a mobile-ready dynamic charting platform — and charting is not one of our core competencies. We wanted to stay focused on our mission and hand the charting responsibility to an expert in that area.” The client also had concerns about turning an important part of their customer experience over to a third party, and wanted to work with a firm that could:

  • Consolidate graphics within the application using a single interactive graphic library that supports mobile platforms and meets the accessibility needs of all users.
  • Demonstrate extensive experience with this type of undertaking and display a track record of successful implementations.
  • Provide the flexibility for the company to continue hosting its own data.
  • Show a strong commitment to performance, security, and reliability.
  • Meet the growing demand for mobile-ready dynamic charting to provide a seamless cross-platform experience.

Team members were familiar with ChartIQ and knew that the company was at the forefront of premier charting in the financial services industry. They knew many of the biggest names in finance relied on ChartIQ, and that it would be possible to license the charting packages on a standalone basis. They reached out to the ChartIQ team at S&P Global Market Intelligence ("Market Intelligence") to learn more.
