Q4 Inc., a global leader in cloud-based investor relations and capital market solutions, today announced the launch of Q4 Desktop, the Company's new all-in-one communications, intelligence and CRM platform for IR professionals.
"We are thrilled to announce the launch of Q4 Desktop. This product is purpose-built from the ground up to deliver all the data, tools and insights required for IR teams to manage their communications, market intelligence and investor engagement," saidDarrell Heaps, CEO of Q4. "When we set out to design this platform, we wanted to deliver an app that was easy to use, but that was also proactive in delivering information to our clients, before they asked the question. Rather than being another information portal, which requires the user to do all of the heavy lifting, we wanted the software to have the ability to do the work for the user."
"The platform is integrated with artificial intelligence applications that are able to read market data along with our proprietary analytics to provide live market commentary about what is driving any stock in the market at any moment. The software analyzes institutional trading patterns, options and equity trading and various other factors to provide live market commentary throughout the day. The experience of using it is as if a talented analyst is watching and reporting on your stock throughout each trading day," said Heaps. "The technology uses our proprietary algorithms combined with Natural Language Processing to deliver a unique and compelling experience. It is a true innovation in the investor relations market and we are just getting started with it."
Q4 is now able to provide clients with a one-stop hub for all IR tools and services needed to manage a successful IR program, boosting strategic intelligence, improving decision making and strengthening investor engagement. With Q4 Desktop, users can:
This announcement follows Q4's recent announcement of its Series B funding of $22 million, which has infused the company with capital needed to continue to expand Q4 Desktop with various other datasets and functionality.
