Standard Chartered has a number of initiatives to continually optimise its internal operations – from environmental, ergonomic, visual and ongoing support perspectives. Standardisation of the desktop screen configuration on the trading floor is a key goal because standard screen layouts simplify support, reducing screen count saves power, and uniformity gives staff a more pleasing working environment. A single row of screens on the trading desks has been made an absolute requirement to give line-of-sight trading.
The traditional deployment of market data services uses dedicated screens to display trading applications. Apart from being physically different, they are often mounted to the side and above the PC screens, ruining line of sight and compromising the screen space available to the user for their local PC.
Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore is the first site to go live in the global deployment of the WEYTEC oneDESK Solution.
