ISD/Shaw Inc., the Washington D.C.-based financial consulting firm, has upgraded its on-line information system.
The changes make "Financial Services Alert" compatible with the high- speed hardware many banks use.
The service provides daily analysis of financial legislation, regulation, and politics. Users also can search for reports of congressional hearings, legislative votes, and regulatory sessions.
"The coming year will be critical for the financial services industry," said ISD/Shaw president Karen D. Shaw. "We wanted to be sure our on-line system could keep up with the pace so that our clients miss nothing that affects their profitability."
