New Award: RavenPack Wins for Best Machine-Readable News Service

June 13, 2018

And yet another award in 2018 for RavenPack, this time as a recognition on our Machine-Readable News.

After winning the “Most Innovative New Product” award a few weeks ago for our Text Analytics platform, we won another award, this time for our flagship product called RavenPack News & Social Media Analytics in the “Best Machine-Readable News Supplier” category at the Intelligent Trading Technology Awards 2018.

We are incredibly proud to win this award and for the acknowledgement of all our hard work and dedication in delivering the best products to our clients. Since our move to the cloud last year, our product team was able to enhance our off the shelf Machine-Readable News product. The cloud-based platform opens up access to unstructured data analytics which until now have only been available to the most sophisticated quantitative investors and traders.
