Xlate for CDS converts data from Pershing to a data format that can
be used by E-Z Data, Inc.s CDS Investment Tracking system.
Pershing, a division of Donaldson, Lufkin, Jenrette,
is a correspondent

transactions on behalf of its correspondent clients. A great deal of data
is generated in this process, much of which is made available and is very
useful to the Broker/Dealer correspondent clients of Pershing, and their
Making effective use of that very valuable and
voluminous data can be a
daunting task. One of the ways that the process of managing that data
can be aided, is through the use of programs that take data in one format
and convert it to the format of a software product that you can use to help
manage your client information.
Xlate is such a product, and performs just that task. It helps you to automate
what would otherwise be a complicated, time consuming and costly manual
process of reviewing paper or electronic trade confirmations, client statements
and Broker/Dealer reports and typing that data into the proper CDS data
Xlate can process hundreds or thousands of transactions in a very short time,
and put that data in a format that CDS can then import into its databases.
