From The Management
BidFX mobile app released
24 November 2019 Paul Sweeny, Chief Technology Officer, BidFX
You don’t get ahead by standing still. Mobility is a fundamental building block of success in almost any human endeavour. In serving customer needs, BidFX strives to be at the front of the crowd and to lead from there. We chose to go mobile because forward-looking clients demand it. This year we mobilised a team to build mobile products, interfaces to provide users with the mobility they need to work from anywhere and while on the move. We embarked on the journey, knowing that it would not be easy. We had to couple the latest smartphone technology seamlessly with proven production systems designed for a desktop EMS. We recognised that the data privacy provisions alone would be considerable, and we refused to go to market with anything less than bank-level security and biometrics. We accepted the challenge and committed to completing it before the year was out. Today I am pleased to announce that BidFX has succeeded in that goal.
BidFX Trader is the initial product offering from our mobile venture to reach production. The app provides FX on the move. Version 1.0.0 of the iOS app is available for download from the Apple AppStore from Monday, 25 November 2019. The app is available immediately for existing BidFX users. To start managing FX risk on iPhone, just search for “BidFX” on the AppStore. Your dedicated account manager will assist with device registration and activation.
I am proud of what my team have produced and the hard work they put in to make the mobile project a success. They have created an app that is secure, functional and a pleasure to use. We are incredibly grateful to all those clients who participated in the beta trial and for their helpful feedback. We will continue to enhance our mobile offering to ensure BidFX users have access to the best products from wherever they choose to work.
