FinancialContent, Inc., a provider of financial data and business applications to online media and financial services companies, has announced the launch of Finesse 1.0, an online syndication tool developed specifically for online publishers to distribute financial-related news through RSS news channels. Finesse 1.0 is a hosted online application that is designed to enable online publishers to create and manage news channels in RSS 2.0. Finesse 1.0 supports FinancialContent's stocksymbol namespace giving online publishers the ability to "tickerize" their news channels by including the ticker symbols of publicly-traded companies as extended RSS 2.0 elements. Finesse 1.0 also features an option to automate the syndication of content across FinancialContent's financial channel deployments. Finesse 1.0 can further automate the creation and management of RSS news channels through custom integration with 3rd party content management applications, parsing engines, and databases.
