Quark Solves Communication Challenges for Financial Sector

New Solution for Dynamically Publishing Investment Research Debuts Next Week at IBM Information OnDemand in Las Vegas

Denver, CO - 10/19/2011 - Quark announced today Dynamic Research Reporting, a new solution designed specifically to advance the creation and delivery of investment research across information channels, including online social media outlets and digital devices such as the iPad. Built on best of breed technology from Quark and IBM, Dynamic Research Reporting enables organisations in the financial sector to improve how they communicate with their clients by increasing the speed, clarity, and agility with which investment opinions and research is delivered – all while ensuring compliance with regulatory mandates.

Quark will be onsite at IBM Information OnDemand in Las Vegas, NV 23rd-27th October. Please contact John Grillos at jgrillos@quark.com to schedule a demo of Dynamic Research Reporting.

Dynamic Research Reporting
Dynamic Research Reporting replaces outdated, manual processes for creating and delivering content to multiple channels by streamlining the authoring process and automating delivery. The solution is based on leading publishing and content management technology from Quark and the IBM Enterprise Content Management (ECM) suite of products, including:

•    IBM Case Manager: Allows research analysts to access, aggregate, and evaluate new business insights in order to develop analysis and reports.
•    Quark XML AuthorTM for Microsoft Word: Allows analysts to author analysis and reports in a familiar word-processing environment while creating XML content that is compliant with industry regulations.
•    Quark Publishing System®: Automatically assembles content components to quickly produce personalised communications for output to print, Web, tablets, and other digital devices.
•    IBM FileNet Content Manager: Increases the consistency and accuracy of research information and mitigates compliance risks by providing a single repository and archive for all research communications and assets. It also integrates social media tools into the Word interface so analysts can engage clients through social media from a single tool.

“The benefits of Dynamic Research Reporting are staggering, with publishing productivity gains as much as 75 percent and a reduction in content personalisation costs of 80 percent or more. When you combine this with 40 percent gains in the speed with which analyst insights can be delivered directly to customers, it’s not difficult to see why investment organisations are viewing this as an essential solution for their business,” said John Grillos, Vice President, Strategic Partner Sales, for Quark. “Quark is committed to providing solutions that keep financial services organisations at the cutting edge of what’s possible in multi-channel publishing. A great example of this is our involvement with RIXML.org, whose goal is to make research information more interoperable and easier to search and find, to standardise the XML requirements and streamline compliance for the financial industry.”
