Fitch Ratings Selects Quark Enterprise Solutions
Global Rating Agency Advances Customer Communication with
Dynamic Financial Research Reporting Solution
DENVER - 4/23/2013 - Quark announced today that Fitch Ratings has selected Quark’s Dynamic Research Reporting Solution to create the reports and commentary the agency delivers to investors, fixed income professionals and capital markets participants worldwide.
As a global provider of independent and prospective credit opinions, research, and data, Fitch helps investors make important credit judgments with confidence. Requiring a highly efficient, flexible, and Word-based authoring environment, Fitch Ratings chose Dynamic Research Reporting from Quark, part of Quark Enterprise Solutions (www.quark.com/enterprise).
Mark Truman-Wallace, Senior Director, Information Technology for Fitch Ratings explains, “It is essential that our authoring solution allows our international teams of analysts to quickly and easily create structured content within a tool with which they are already familiar, Microsoft Word. We chose Quark’s Dynamic Research Reporting solution for this reason, because it allows for the reuse of that content through its underpinning XML structure and provides extensive integration into our data sources and workflow applications.”
“Information consumers today demand relevant, engaging and timely content in their preferred format and device of choice. Fitch Ratings’ dedication to serving capital markets participants around the world with this type of accurate, up-to-date, and multichannel analysis made for a perfect fit with Quark’s Enterprise Solutions for investment research reporting. We are excited to partner with Fitch Ratings as their team continues to drive innovation in the financial services industry,” said Lawrence Paterson of Quark Software Inc.
