OILspace Unveils Real Time Metals Software Solution For Desktops, PDAs, BlackBerry®

Real time metals news, prices and market information from a multitude of benchmark sources with powerful analytics and charting comes to connected desktops, PDAs and BlackBerry® devices anywhere with the launch today of AspectDSC Metals, a sister Web site to OILwatch.

Latest in a line of software-as-a-service applications from specialist vendor OILspace, AspectDSC Metals is wholly Internet based. Subscribers need only a compatible Web browser and Internet connection to access current and historical prices for base, ferrous and precious metals from LME, Nymex and Comex along with relevant news and information from Dow Jones, Platts and other world sources.

The move will put competitively priced, real time market data at the fingertips of brokers, traders, dealers, mining companies, processors, stockholders and shippers virtually anywhere in the world, whether in the office or on the move.

Easily assimilated at a glance the information is presented in customisable panels and worksheets. Data can be tailored to the exact needs of individual users while all back-end processing takes place on OILspace's dedicated secure servers. AspectDSC Metals' included analytical and charting tools take the same information to form a powerful decision support capability.

Second only to the global oil and gas market in value, worldwide trade in metals topped $9,500Bn last year. Recent volatility, price hikes and spiraling demand are fuelling the need for up-to-the-minute prices and market data according to OILspace president and CEO Steve Hughes.

"OILspace's unique Web based solutions are already used by more than 500 top energy industry organisations in over 65 countries to make multi-million-dollar business decisions. Extending our proven technology platform into metals is a logical next step and takes us into a new global growth market," said Hughes.

A key advantage of the Internet based AspectDSC Metals is its speed of processing, all of which takes place at OILspace's server farm. End user devices act as intelligent interactive terminals, ensuring the information displayed is as near real time as possible. Competing solutions are often only Internet enabled, keeping much of the processing burden on the user device itself. This can slow the experience, particularly for mobile users.

With a launch promotional price starting from $168 per month, the AspectDSC Metals service is also available for a no-obligation, free-of-charge demonstration period. For an application visit
