Unleashing The Stocknessmonster....

Solution 6 Iguana unleashes….

Sydney, 15th October, 2000: Solution 6 Holdings Limited (ASX:SOH), a world leading supplier of IT solutions to business professionals, today launched Australia’s newest sharemarket information site,

StockNessMonster is a fast, user friendly and innovative web service interface that allows access to detailed sharemarket information at the click of a mouse.

The site contains all the standard sharemarket information tools, including charts, quotes and market announcements. In addition, StockNessMonster displays this content in a graphically rich form, rather than the raw data format used by other websites.

Covering both the Australian and New Zealand Stock Exchanges, access to the site is free after completing a simple registration form.

Adam Rands, Iguana Project Leader, said that his team has drawn upon years of experience developing sharemarket content sites for other parties and utilised its latest graphing and market information servers to produce StockNessMonster.

“All of the content on StockNessMonster is able to be rebranded and delivered in an ASP environment to other sharemarket and broking related websites.”
Mr Rands said StockNessMonster is a showcase of some of the tools and services we can provide to the wider market.

“StockNessMonster, offering ten levels of depth displayed in a vivid graphical format, helps the viewer to accurately interpret the market faster,” Mr Rands said. “Graphically displayed depth provides the viewer with an instant gauge of likely trading activity.”

Mr Rands said that he was confident that the site would be popular with the market, anticipating over 400,000 page impressions in the first month, growing to 2 million within 6 months.

“To help make the site even more appealing, Stocky the Monster changes its facial expressions dependent upon market conditions,” Mr Rands said. “Users will be hoping to see Stocky grinning each time the website is accessed.”
