MTS BondsPro is a fixed income electronic trading platform focused on enabling access to corporate bond trading. It provides liquidity and real-time execution via an anonymous, all-to-all order book with over 500 participants. The existing user interface (UI) was web-based, built using legacy technology. It provided users the means to participate in its marketplace in a cost-effective and comprehensive platform.
The MTS BondsPro software had rich content and numerous useful features built-in over many years. However, as often happens over the life of a software product, the UI became challenging to support and enhance. MTS made a decision to refresh the user experience and implement a more modern, supportable, and extensible software solution which could also provide a more intuitive user experience for a growing client base. There were tight timelines and lots of enthusiasm to deliver a fresh, modern UI for existing and new users.
It became a recurring joke that we never had comments after Sprint demos, because there were no surprises - Adaptive delivered exactly what we had discussed in the prior weeks, largely bug-free, with a design exactly like the mock-ups.
