 Stockbroker Charles Stanley is latest subscriber to KTS's QuoteTerminal System


Charles Stanley and Company Limited is the latest big City name to subscribe to
QuoteTerminal, the live UK financial news and data product from Knowledge
Technology Solutions PLC (KTS). Charles Stanley, one of the largest private
client stockbrokers in the UK, has bought QuoteTerminal licences for its London
and provincial offices.


Since the beginning of the year KTS has been signing up a steady stream of
well-known financial institutions. Charles Stanley is the sixth City firm that
KTS has announced is subscribing to QuoteTerminal in the past five months.
Morley Fund Management, Prudential-Bache Limited, Royal London Asset Management,
Williams de Broe and Singer and Friedlander are the other major QuoteTerminal
subscribers already taking the service since January.


QuoteTerminal is used by finance professionals in the UK and offers premium
news, data and analysis sourced from well-known providers such as Comstock, a
division of FT Interactive, Dow Jones Newswires, RNS and AFX News.



Dr Marc Pinter-Krainer, Chief Executive of KTS, said:


'Technology and cost advantages are the two main driving forces behind
innovative market data applications such as QuoteTerminal. Against its
competition, QuoteTerminal has taken a leadership position in providing maximum
benefit in both these areas. We're delighted to welcome Charles Stanley as a new
QuoteTerminal customer.'


Mike Pitts, IT Director of Charles Stanley, commented:


'We wanted a live financial data and news system that was fully professional yet
easy to use.  We also wanted one we could install across the firm with the
minimum of fuss. QuoteTerminal fitted the bill perfectly as it requires no
on-site installation, provides reliable data and news and is secure.'


Iain Daly, Smaller Companies Analyst at Charles Stanley, said:


'I have been impressed by the flexibility of the QuoteTerminal product,
particularly the ability to access full market data.'
