UNAPEN product questions, PriceFusion questions


"Due to our back-office workflow, we would prefer to run dividends manually, a few times per month, once our prerequisite tasks are complete. Is this a viable workflow with PriceFusion?"

While most users prefer to schedule the dividend processing task to run unattended on a daily schedule, users do have the ability to run the task manually from the File menu.

PriceFusion is designed to remember the last time dividends were run successfully; this ensures you will pull down any dividends that went 'EX' since your last run, helping to avoid missed records and duplication.

I am trying to look up security information data that is not commonly consumed by the masses. Do I have access to data beyond the standard fields currently integrated for download via PriceFusion?

Yes! Your packaged solution includes access to two platform interfaces, PriceFusion and the DataScope Select Web Interface.

UNAPEN product questions, PriceFusion questions


Can I download data from our custodians or other data sources while using the PriceFusion integration?

Absolutely! PriceFusion works well in place of, and in conjunction with, other data processing feeds.

UNAPEN product questions, PriceFusion questions


What functional syntax can I use as part of my data processing or command line execution of the various tasks in PriceFusion?

Example:  PriceFusion.exe PDI P = Pricing,  M = Missing Prices,  I = Indexes, E = Sec Info Updates,  R = Rates,  S = Splits,  D = Dividends,  F = Factors,  Q = Intraday Pricing and M = Missing Prices

"PriceFusion has automated several tedious yet business-critical tasks and has been a tremendous product for our firm. We worked with UNAPEN during implementation to configure PriceFusion to update our APX system both intra-day and end-of-day and their decades of experience in integrating with Advent portfolio accounting systems really paid off!"
