Spotware Systems, a technology provider for the electronic trading industry, has appointed Andreas Masouras in the capacity of business development manager.

Masouras joins Spotware after having spent 8 years in different sales roles. His experience within the foreign exchange industry dates back to August 2020. He arrives at Spotware after a short stint with Tools for Brokers, a software developer for FX brokers, where he spent 18 months as a sales manager.

According to his Linkedin profile, Masouras spent the bulk of his career at a company called Masouras Bros Shipping. During a six-year tenure, he worked his way up through several roles with the firm, culminating with the position of Chief Operating Officer.

Spotware has recently launched an updated web version of its flagship cTrader trading platform, adding new functionality to join a roster of advanced trading capabilities.

In this version of cTrader web, the company has brought further improvements to the performance optimization which builds on the recently overhauled user interface that was applied in the previous version.

Spotware said “significant changes” have been made to the structure of the application and its interaction with servers. This has reduced the startup time of the application by 2 times, and also increased the responsiveness of the application to user commands.

These new features securely fall in line with Spotware’s goal of keeping cTrader as one of most trader friendly platforms on the market. The company says that adding such preferences allows their traders to decide exactly how they want the platform to work for them.
