FixSpec build, configure and host accurate simulation platforms of trading and market data interfaces, which not only provide your clients with a 24 x 7 development environment, but which also tracks them towards certification.We work from your specs and first-hand experience of your interface to build the most accurate simulator possible, and maintain it as a service over time. So you don't need to worry about software installs, heavy scripting or consulting bills.

Key Features

The FixSpec simulation environment is a very unique offering. We take your specification and a connection to your UAT environment, and we build an accurate simulation of your interface including all custom tags, messages and quirks.Your clients can then connect to this environment 24 x 7 x 365 over a standard internet connection, and interact with it for the purposes of developing and maintaining their applications. Developers receive real-time feedback through our website, helping them to understand (in plain English) why orders might be failing.Simple controls give developers complete control over their orders and quotes, allowing them to fill orders, expire them, and even perform venue actions such as busting a trade or force cancelling orders. All without needing to arrange a slot with the broker / venue.We also create a series of certification scenarios within the platform to keep an eye on how the developer is progressing towards certification. These are checked off in real time as we observe required behaviour in the environment, so the developer and specification owner can see progress. We know you are busy, so we don't want to sell you a piece of software that you need to install, configure and maintain yourself. That's why we set up, configure and maintain the environment on your behalf. All for a simple, fixed fee. No consulting and no surprises.Contact us today at for more information.

Key Benefits

  1. A true interface simulator allowing your clients and prospects to connect over the internet and test whenever they want.
  2. The platform is NOT a highly-scripted checklist of certification tasks; it is a simulated interface allowing developers to try out what they want whenever they want
  3. FIX engine linked to real-time website to give feedback on messaging problems, showing them multiple problems at a time and not one at a time.
  4. Ability for testers to simulate actions "as the venue" (force cancelling orders, busting trades etc) without needing to coordinate a time with the venue.
  5. No software to install. Nothing to configure. No unexpected consulting bills. Just a simple, fixed price subscription model for all changes.
