Services provider Knowledge Technology Solutions (KTS) this week
launched MarketTerminal, a service it claims to be the financial PR
sector's equivalent of Bloomberg and Reuters.
City PROs can now access a real-time financial news service KTS insists
is designed to meet their specific needs.
The company hopes MarketTerminal - designed to run on standard PCs and
laptops using the internet as its delivery mechanism - will reduce costs
to users and allow them to access the service on the move.
It provides news and data tools allowing financial PROs to monitor the
market dynamics affecting their clients.
KTS chief executive Dr Marc Pinter-Krainer said one service within
MarketTerminal - level two stock market access - has been designed to
help City PROs advise clients on the size and times of each share move
and which market leaders have bought or sold the shares.
The raw data for the service is provided by PRNewswire, Hemscott, the
London Stock Exchange, Standard & Poor's ComStock, LIFFE, AFX Focus UK
and Dow Jones Newswires.
Pinter-Krainer said the service's other features would include a
customised scrolling news ticker, a user-definable alert for changes in
equity prices and a live video streaming capability.
AIM-listed KTS owns Cognita Technologies, the firm behind online
financial news publisher Sharepages.com.
