"With Barchart OnDemand, the data was easy to implement and maintain."

Challenge:

Providing high-quality mobile applications comes the challenge of providing high-quality and reliable market data within those apps. Unsure of where to turn, missingSTEP began their journey of finding a market data vendor that could meet their needs and requirements.

"When looking for a market data vendor, we were looking for a company that could provide not just row data, but also provide services such as news, calendars and charting solutions," says Simsir.

Solution:

While exploring different options for a vendor, missingSTEP came upon Barchart OnDemand and noticed the many different benefits of working with a cloud-based platform through on-demand APIs.

"With Barchart OnDemand, the data was easy to implement and maintain," says Simsir.

With Barchart OnDemand, missingSTEP was able to get the most out of the platform with the getQuote API. With this API, missingSTEP is able to provide access to the markets for users to monitor on a variety of their mobile applications.
