Wall Street Systems
Wall Street Systems is best known for providing functionally-rich, integrated and scalable solutions, which improve workflow and control while greatly reducing transactions costs for customers. In order to stay ahead of customer needs and demands, they embarked on an initiative to migrate their front- and back-office applications from a second generation VB-based platform to Eclipse RCP. Wall Street Systems recognized this migration as an opportunity to improve the usability of the new interface while further differentiating the offerings from those of competitors.
Wall Street Systems partnered with TandemSeven to design new foreign exchange trading and settlements processing applications for their new Wallstreet FX Sigma technology platform. The project included updating the existing user interface, addressing functionality issues and uncovering new sales opportunities. To understand the context of user roles and processes, the team conducted end-user interviews with key constituents, including traders, front office sales team members and back office application representatives. They used the information along with innovative data visualization techniques to create wireframes for the front and back office applications, and developed a new visual design. The design was far better than the interfaces provided by competitive offerings, prompting executives to give the “green light” needed to implement the new designs.
In addition to an updated look and feel of trading applications, users experience a more flexible and interactive user interface which results in quicker trade entries. By focusing on user needs and workflow, TandemSeven helped Wall Street Systems successfully improve productivity while providing consistency between traders and the sales team.
