Bear Stearns has signed a contract with Thomson Financial for expanded use of the Thomson ONE product suite.
This expanded rollout follows an initial deployment of 250 desktops in June 2003, and brings the total number of analysts, associates and bankers utilizing a Thomson Financial desktop solution at Bear Stearns to 600. All users share a common desktop framework and content mix combined with a configured desktop that provides workflow tools and functionality that meet the needs of both junior and senior bankers. When configured for investment banking, Thomson ONE covers the needs of the entire investment banking workflow from idea generation and prospecting, comps analysis and valuation through detailed due-diligence and client presentation.
“Our junior bankers have relied on several different products in the past to meet their workflow needs,” said Steven Medley, vice president and co-manager of the Business Information Group at Bear Stearns. “Thomson Financial’s Investment Banking desktop provides a fully integrated solution built on Thomson Financial’s “must have” content which clearly enables our bankers to work more efficiently.”
