Eze Castle Integration Launches Eze Smart Mobility Solutions to Provide Hedge Fund and Investment Firms with Proven Wireless Applications and Devices
BOSTON – January 23, 2007 – Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading provider of technology and IT services to investment firms, today launched Eze Smart Mobility Solutions, a portfolio of EzeApproved wireless applications and handheld devices that allow hedge fund and investment managers to oversee and manage investment operations from virtually anywhere. The first EzeApproved applications deliver portfolio monitoring capabilities and real-time Reuters financial information to mobile devices. Among Eze Castle’s first partners are Pyxis Mobile, a leading provider of wireless investment software, and eAccess Solutions, a provider of wireless devices.
With Eze Smart Mobility Solutions, Eze Castle regularly evaluates new wireless applications and offers clients EzeApproved applications, which meet key criteria including business relevance, reliability and ease of use. Eze Castle also helps investment firms create and manage a mobile infrastructure by simplifying the entire purchasing process for mobile devices, accessories and plans. Through its partner eAccess, Eze Castle clients can now purchase devices, accessories and service plans via a secure website (http://www.ezesmartmobility.com), by phone or through an Eze Castle client representative.
Adam Honoré, senior analyst of analyst firm Aite Group, said, "Hedge fund and investment firms recognize the value of adding business critical information, such as market data feeds, to their mobile devices, but do not possess the time or expertise to navigate the myriad of available mobile applications. Service offerings are essential to providing education and implementation support as wireless connectivity and applications become more of a lifeline for hedge fund and investment firms."
Today’s hedge fund and investment firm managers require always-on access to critical business information, including real-time market and portfolio data. Current EzeApproved solutions include:
- mHedge Manager™ from Pyxis Mobile, a comprehensive real-time Profit/Loss, Strategy, Portfolio and Market Data monitoring tool for the Hedge Fund community. Users can access all the necessary reports and market data to effectively manage strategies and orders from any location. mHedge Manager enables real-time decision making by giving hedge managers instant access to their P&L strategies and underlying positions, enabling them to generate higher returns and be more efficient while on the road.
- marketStream™ delivers exhaustive real-time Reuters financial information from 30 financial exchanges to mobile devices. Financial information, such as portfolio positions and intraday charting, is delivered at high speeds and allows connectivity even while roaming on foreign networks.
- eAccess Solutions Inc. provides mobile data hardware, software and support services, delivering real mobile solutions with a quantifiable return-on-investment. eAccess is a leading reseller of BlackBerry equipment, support and service.
“Eze Castle Integration recognizes that mobility combined with real-time, continuous access to investment portfolio and market data is a priority for today’s busy investment professionals,” said Bob Guilbert, managing director of marketing for Eze Castle Integration. “Eze Smart Mobility addresses this need by providing clients direct access to solutions from leading wireless partners that are guaranteed to provide added value to our customers. We take the guess work out of selecting the right wireless application.”
