Putting a trading desk application on the cloud in a few weeks with Visual WebGui

I would like to share with you the following story showcasing how Visual WebGui Rich & Cloud Applications Platform enabled MBI to replace the old VB 6.0 with a modern web application that presents an enhanced user experience for the trading desk system. With the old VB 6.0 based system the trading job took a whole day to complete, but with Visual WebGui the process takes only a few hours and is nearly automatic.

Using Visual WebGui for this project contributed to delivering an application that is easy to use, intuitive and responsive in a short period of time. "Developing an application with Visual WebGui is a charm. UI design is done in a snap and coding is as easy as building a Windows application."

MBI had a VB 6.0 application that didn't meet the requirements anymore as the trading process was too long and complicated. As a result, it was decided to create a new trading desk application which would be simple, easy to use and reliable. It should be used by the Money Market traders and must allow them to get the trading job done in a few hours instead of the whole day with a nearly automated process.
