we also test the possibility to accept the applications", - commented Oleg
Tkachenko, Chairman of the Board of the Ukrainian Exchange.

advantage of using international standards is in the fact that they allow our
software "to speak one language" with IT systems both clients and
providers of information" - commented Richard Ogdon, director of TRDATA company,
