ION connectivity gateways and UI provide fairly standard user interface allowing end users (i.e. Traders) to trade across world leading exchanges and trading venues with ease and uniformly.
ION Desktop Application is not only an application but also a framework with an API to be used by our customers (internal & external) to extend its capabilities through custom development (plug-ins). We have recently extracted core business infrastructure of Dealer to Dealer user interface into a dedicated module e-trading add-on which is currently undergoing further evolution.
