Barclays Introduces iAlert Mobile and Tablet Functionality
Barclays has announced the launch of its enhanced foreign exchange (FX) iAlert tool, now optimized for smartphones and tablet devices. Following the launch of iAlert last year, the free online tool now offers significantly enhanced functionality, greater personalization and gives access to the latest Barclays FX research.
Being optimized for smartphones and tablet devices, iAlert makes it easier for international clients at the Wealth and Investment Management division at Barclays to manage wealth effectively, by providing important information to support FX needs.
Commenting on the iAlert enhancements, Shaun Phillips, Managing Director, Barclays, said: “This marks a significant milestone for our business enabling us to service the FX needs of our clients more effectively. We are happy to design a tool which helps us provide real time value-added services to our clients.”
Barclays iAlert allows clients to monitor up to 75 currency pairs, and receive email alerts when their pre-selected currency pairs reach the upper and/or lower levels set by them. In addition, through iAlert, clients can now access real-time FX data including:
Current and historical currency rates
Extensive Barclays research and market commentary from our Treasury Specialists
A range of FX tutorials
Enhancements such as dashboard updates, currency reverse, personalised alerts, chart improvements and summary email subscriptions have also been added to the offering.
