We have up to the minute knowledge of what will do the
job and what is the best value for trading business situations. It gives
us the pulse, pace, and direction of these exciting new technologies.
Because trading can have a lot of intrinsic excitement, flash and glitz,
it is easy to believe that flashy graphics in the trader tool analytics will compensate for mistakes
or clumsiness in the visual user interface of the tools. Thus, a trading system development
team can be tempted to think that they can just pass their software
around amongst their fellow traders or some "free" beta testers
and that will be adequate to find all the human factors clumsiness issues.
But since there are now many competing trading platforms, trading rooms and systems which have good profit performance,
the next delineator of product attractiveness will be human
factors, so a more rigorous approach is need to ensure competitive viability. Contact us for help with that.
