G.X. Clarke & Co. Updates Internet Trading Portal With Lightstreamer for Real-Time Pricing and Execution

Lightstreamer, the high-performance AJAX-Comet engine, has been deployed by G.X. Clarke & Co.

Milan, January 31st, 2007 -- Lightstreamer announced today that G.X. Clarke & Co., a New Jersey-based Institutional Dealer in U.S. Government, Federal Agency and Mortgage-Backed Securities, has implemented web based real-time streaming prices with Lightstreamer. This Streaming-Ajax (or "Comet") solution from Lightstreamer allows G.X. Clarke & Co.’s customers to access continuous, live pricing and to execute trades over the Internet with just a simple browser, thus avoiding complications which result when downloads or plug-ins are required.

Bernard Spanger, partner at G.X. Clarke & Co., comments: "We wanted to reduce our support load, constrain costs and improve our site by updating it with the latest AJAX push technology, avoiding complications for our institutional clients with older browsers and improving overall performance. Lightstreamer has provided a cost-effective solution, and the few custom features that they implemented for us resulted in a clean integration in a short timeframe."

Lightstreamer is a push engine conceived for live data distribution to any kind of client application (thin, thick, mobile, etc.) In the case of thin clients, it relies on the AJAX-Comet paradigm to stream real-time data to any HTML browser without the need to download or install anything on the client.

"We are pleased to see that Lightstreamer has again been recognised as the leading commercial Streaming-Ajax solution and has been selected by G.X. Clarke & Co.," said Simon Walmsley, Vice President Sales of Lightstreamer.
