Flagstar Bank is one of many companies that have switched to Xignite financial Web services to create tailored dashboards that meet the specific needs of their business, while lowering total cost of ownership by eliminating unused data feeds and unnecessary software and hardware infrastructure. Publicly traded companies, asset management firms and banks are using Xignite Web services to power internal dashboards to conduct research, monitor company performance, improve investor relations, create models and price products, loans, and assets. Xignite offers more than 50 financial Web services covering equities, commodities, currencies, interest rates and corporate information that can be integrated into any Web or software application in minutes, accelerating application delivery and eliminating development, deployment, and maintenance costs. Flagstar Bank utilizes Xignite Web services to drive an internal financial dashboard that retrieves stock prices, futures, bonds, financial rates and mortgages at a timed refresh to deliver the data to more than 3,500 employees. Flagstar selected Xignite for their ability to provide more data, faster and at a lower cost than their competition. Flagstar has deployed XigniteBATSLastSale, XigniteHistorical, XigniteMetals, XigniteMoneyMarkets, XigniteRates, XigniteFutures and XigniteIndices. "Xignite enabled us to create a powerful dashboard that provides up-to-the-minute data at a fraction of the cost and development time required by other market data providers," said Jason Dufner, senior vice president of IT Content and Banking Systems for Flagstar. "With Xignite, we are able to stay abreast of the industry's constantly fluctuating stock prices and mortgage rates, which is critical in today's turbulent economy. Furthermore, Xignite has addressed our requirements so well and the dashboard has been such a success with our users, we revised the initial project to include additional features." "Financial institutions are between a rock and a hard place with traditional market data providers. In order to access vital financial information, they are forced over invest in expensive terminals and services that go way beyond their needs," said Stephane Dubois, CEO, Xignite. "On-demand financial Web services free these organizations from this untenable situation, providing them with only the data they need and eliminating all investments in additional hardware or software. Now, companies like Flagstar can quickly build powerful internal dashboards powered by up-to-the-minute financial information that provide a solid ROI in weeks, not years."
