This week, Thomson Reuters announced the launch of one of its first third-party apps on Eikon Studio in partnership with Oddup.
The first of its kind in Asia, we’re told that the app on Eikon App Studio provides ratings on startups, thus enabling finance and technology professionals to stay on top of the growing world of startups.
The financial industry is increasingly turning to open technology standards to drive innovation and flexibility in a complex business landscape.
Eikon App Studio provides an open environment where the financial industry has access to a new generation of apps that “foster innovation and improve productivity.”
The Oddup app is now available to Eikon users on App Studio, a financial app development platform that allows users to access specialized apps and streamline workflow needs as well as enabling third-party developers to integrate their app in Eikon and amplify their reach.
