valuescope announces Finsights’ full compatibility with IE
|Pressemitteilung von: valuescope GmbH|
(openPR) - Saas financial news application optimized to run on recent versions of all major Internet browsers|
MUNICH, Germany, 11 August 2009 – valuescope GmbH, a specialist in semantic web business applications, today
announced its flagship, web-based product Finsights (finsights.value-scope.com/?pr_en) is now compatible
with versions 7.0 of Internet Explorer and higher. Finsights presently runs on the latest versions of Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
Finsights made its debut in June of this year with primary optimization for Mozilla® Firefox 3.0.8. Despite the initial
limited browser compatibility Finsights has been widely received in the financial technology industry. Membership
has seen steady growth since the launch, with the average user browsing six documents per session.
“We were acutely aware of the need to optimize Finsights for Internet Explorer quickly”, says Stefan Ki Müller,
Managing Director of valuescope. “Banks, insurance agencies and other financial institutions are disinclined to use
newer versions of web browsers and often do not allow software to be downloaded onto office equipment.
Microsoft has the most widely used operating system in the corporate world which meant most people were using
some version of IE and a significant portion of our audience was unable to reach Finsights. I am pleased we were
able to quickly adapt the application to run not only on IE 7.0 and higher but also on Google Chrome and Apple
