Advent Software, a provider of software and services to the investment management industry, has launched the next generation of Tamale RMS, its research management solution designed for the front office.
Version 4.0 introduces an open, flexible framework that allows firms to customize the application to meet their specific research process workflow requirements.
'Tamale RMS 4.0 is a significant next-generation release that marks an important step for Advent in enabling investment management firms to further improve their front-office workflow,' says Mark Rice, a senior vice-president and general manager of the Tamale group at Advent.
'We realise that no two firms are alike, so version 4.0 was built with easy flexibility as a top priority. Clients have the ability to capture, store and find the information they want, in a format they prefer, providing them with a more powerful foundation for making investment decisions.
'In addition, we have completely opened up our platform to allow sophisticated clients to access their RMS data with a direct server to server connection and to configure the RMS modules to their needs.'
Tamale RMS is designed to help portfolio managers and analysts organise and share their research, in order to manage more investment ideas more effectively. The solution, which is used by 2,000 investment professionals around the world, organises information around the workflow of each investment professional or team and provides features that enhance the research process.
The latest version of Tamale RMS provides firms with easy access to the information most important to the front office in the investment decision-making process, such as research, market data, current activity, exposure and performance.
Firms can leverage qualitative and quantitative data, integrated into a single view, to optimise the investment decision-making process.
'The new level of flexibility and integration in Tamale RMS 4.0 allows us to keep all of our disparate types of research right at our fingertips, and with the improved mobility feature, we now have access to all of our data anywhere at any time,' says Jack McPherson, a managing director and portfolio manager at Eagle Boston Investment Management.
'Tamale RMS 4.0 has taken research management to a new level and demonstrates a continued commitment to enhancing the research process for the front-office.'
