BURSA MALAYSIA LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE
Bursa Malaysia has launched its new and improved website aimed at providing a simpler, friendlier and more efficient web experience for users. The new website is divided into two broad sections - the Corporate and Market sections - to provide a clear differentiation of the dual role played by Bursa Malaysia as a listed company and an exchange marketplace.
The new features include faster and easier search functions for stock prices, all-in-one listed company profile pages and improved classification of information.Dato' Tajuddin Atan, Chief Executive Officer of Bursa Malaysia
said, "We are pleased to unveil the new Bursa Malaysia website, with its improved content structure and functional enhancements. The motivating factor behind the redesign initiative is the feedback we received from users of the website. Given that we last revamped our website in 2006, there is clearly a need to refresh and upgrade the hardware, software and infrastructure supporting the website. We hope these new improvements will provide users with a better web experience, including easier and faster access to information."
The beta/preview version of the new website was made available from 26 March 2012 and the public has given their comments and feedback. Some of the suggestions received were incorporated into the new website.
In the new website, each listed company has a dedicated all-in-one page featuring information on its share price, corporate announcements as well as recent trading and corporate activities. The stock price page features improved display of data and market information filtering, with direct links to companies' profile pages. The new website also incorporates an improved filtering system for the display of corporate announcements.
Dedicated pages for the securities, derivatives and Islamic markets, as well as a new dropdown menu and quick links will enable easier navigation between sections. The new search bar allows for auto completion of search results with smart matching, resulting in faster searches for stock quotes and company profiles. Users are now also able to register for Bursa Malaysia's events online.
