IT and new media solutions and services
The Ransquawk Portal is a very bespoke system that is specifically aimed for traders typically in the City of London. It uses bleeding edge streaming stream software technology in order to provide traders with a real time audio “squawk” service.
Virtual Function was commissioned this project after the a stream of uncommitted promises from their old web developer, and a incomplete project that was still not functional after 18 months. A total re-haul was done over a 3 month period to revamp the website with a fresh new look, better search engine optimisation. Numerous tweaks were made to make the administration work-flow far more efficient for Ransquawk staff.
AJAX technology was exploited in order to provide traders with real time news. A bespoke Ubuntu deployment was created to accommodate the recording process.
