Currency Server was designed to be the most advanced currency-enabling component on the market. It provides exchange rate information and currency conversion services to COM/ActiveX and .NET and SOAP Web service clients on any platform, and supports a larger number of independent providers of exchange rate data than other tools. By working locally rather than relying on remote servers for each transaction, Currency Server provides a unique level of performance, reliability and independence. The service is always available to satisfy thousands of information and conversion requests per second. Support for a variety of data providers (both free and subscription-based) and advanced administration notification options assure fault tolerance and peace of mind.
When the software is implemented on a web server, visitors can see prices in their "language" without having to use third-party sites for currency-related services and without being subject to external advertising and cookies. Currency Server is one of the fastest and most cost-effective tools to add value to an e-commerce site. Either alone or as part of a complete internationalization effort, Currency Server can easily plug into an existing system and open up a new world of opportunities and user experience.
Possible applications include:
- E-commerce: Integration with web or commerce server to create a dual-currency or multi-currency shopping site (customers see prices in currency of their choice)
- Back-office: interfacing with database, accounting, procurement, expense management, spreadsheets, etc.
- Information: Daily maintenance of an exchange rate data file on a LAN or web server (e.g. to post exchange rates in HTML format, or for custom clients such as WorldCalc or Euro Calculator)
- Web services: Use as a .NET or SOAP server to provide web services to licensed remote clients
