Zerodha and ChartIQ: Attract and retain traders with a superior charting experience

Written by Eugene Sorenson

We recently extended our partnership with Zerodha, which we announced in this press release. Since 2016, Zerodha has been implementing Cosaic’s ChartIQ solution in their flagship trading platform, Kite.

We’re proud to see our charts in front of millions of Zerodha users every day, and thrilled that ChartIQ is the default charting application in Kite.

Recently, Zerodha’s Chief Commercial Officer Hanan Delvi sat down to discuss why the ChartIQ partnership has been such a success. Watch full Zerodha testimonial above.

What we want to do is give our customers the best experience that is possible on a trading platform. A trading platform should be fast which looks good which a person can trust. Using ChartIQ was really important for us because it gave the whole package.

My name is Hanan and I am the CCO at Zerodha. I take care of client interactions and ensure that our customers have a great experience and try and get them the product that they need.

Prior to working with ChartIQ we did not have our own trading platform we saw a lot of other charting platforms and we chose ChartIQ.

The biggest benefit of working with ChartIQ has been the ability to just improve the product offering for our customers the fact that they gave us HTML5 charts and the integration was very easy and we were able to give our customers great products.

I’d recommend ChartIQ to anybody who needs to show data to their customers in a way they could understand.

We’ve had a great experience working with the ChartIQ team they’ve always been available helpful and are knowledgeable about what they do and every time we find any kind of issue they’re always available to work with us.

So if you want to show information to your customers in a manner that they would understand and they would be able to go back to and look and use it for their benefit, I think you should just go for it.

Along with the great support ChartIQ provides, integrating ChartIQ into your current platform is a breeze and helps you retain and attract active traders. It elevates your site to the next level. See The ChartIQ Difference.
