AppDate: Trade stocks with a pro

In this AppDate, SEAN BACHER highlights Infinox IX Social, Saryx HSEC Online, Trace Academia, Telegram Messenger on Telkom FreeMe and RouteThis Resolve.

Infinox IX Social

In a bid to make stock trading more accessible, trading broker Infinox has launched the IX Social trading platform in South Africa. This allows its clients to socially trade, see what other traders are doing, and follow and engage with them. “Trading can be lonely, and the method of social trading allows users to connect with successful and profitable traders, and copy their trading strategies,” says Dany Mawas, regional director at Infinox. “Once following a certain trader, users will be notified each time they buy or sell stocks,”

Mawas compares IX Social’s functionality to that of other social media platforms, as it allows clients to ‘like’ certain methods of the traders they are following. It also allows them to comment and chat about why a specific stock option was chosen, giving users an insight into successful trader’s strategies. 

Infinox screens traders that use the platform, ensuring that they meet certain criteria before they can offer strategies or share trade ideas with users, which adds an element of security.

Platform: Android and iOS

Saryx HSEC Online

Saryx Engineering Group’s HSEC Online app is a cloud-based solution that enables an organisation to track and manage health and safety compliance for the company, its people, and equipment. It is accessible on any device and from anywhere.

The app has health, safety and compliance guidelines built into it, allowing HR departments to more easily stay up to date with changes and implement them across the company.

For instance, in terms of POPIA, many companies are still unsure how to become and remain compliant. HSEC Online informs companies as to what needs to be done to remain compliant, including instructions on what documents need to be filed, where they must go and when this should all be done.

Saryx co-founder Julie Mathieson says: “The system is flexible enough to help companies control legal issues, audits, risk management and the required documentation around emergency procedures and organisational safety policies.”

Platform: Any device with an up-to-date Internet browser

Expect to pay: A free download, but with in-app purchases and upgrades.
