CHICAGO, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vetr, the investment research platform, has experienced significant growth and success during the first quarter of 2015. From receiving a Benzinga Award to experiencing momentous website traffic, Vetr is positioning themselves for strong growth throughout 2015. A crowdsourced rating platform for stocks, Vetr turned to Barchart OnDemand to power their website with high-quality market data through cloud-based APIs.
"When we were first starting out, we had very little understanding about how financial market data was acquired and used," said JD Singh, Head of Business Development at Vetr. "Barchart OnDemand was there with us during our early days to help us understand the data and how best to use it. Data reliability is very important in the FinTech industry and Barchart's OnDemand APIs have been extremely reliable for us," added JD.
"Since Barchart OnDemand attracts many FinTech startups, Vetr has been an exciting new client with their crowdsourced investment research and social media platform," says Mark Haraburda, Managing Director of Barchart OnDemand. "By tailoring our cloud-based APIs, we were able to provide Vetr a custom solution to display high-quality market data and financial information on their website," added Haraburda.
With Barchart OnDemand, Vetr is able to provide their users with reliable financial market data and information with a variety of cloud-based APIs:
- getQuote: Used by Vetr to display delayed US Equities price data when a user searches a symbol on their website.
