New version of 'Pricing Master' system complete.
A new version of the 'Pricing Master' system for a major New York-based asset management firm has been completed. This new version of the system implements the automated volatility prices calculations and automated evaluation of the most preferable seller of securities. And the UI section connected with the Data Collection engine was improved as well. The 'Pricing Master' is an open Automated Financial Data collection tool. The system provides an automated engine for downloading excel and CSV files from financial organizations' web sites. The web-based interface shows historical and analytical information about financial securities. The application is able to reach sites over login forms via HTTP and HTTPS. It also has a universal engine to recognize and upload collected data into DB and is fully automated and scheduled. The system interface is entirely web-based, built on Microsoft's .NET technology platform. The system employs advanced UI approaches that help to deliver desktop-like functionality to users within the web browsers. There is an ability to perform Quick Search by multiple parameters, such as CUSIP/ISIN, Bloomberg ID, Name, and so on. The system is integrated with several other financial applications developed for the same firm.
