With continuous data flows, managing information is critical. 

The Adaptable Blotter is fully data agnostic - it works effortlessly with all datagrids, data sources, data formats, asset classes, desks and workflows. And its rich suite of auditing and validation tools serve as a first line of compliance defence, helping users to meet regulatory requirements.


The Adaptable Blotter is the first game-changing component from Adaptable Tools, a new software house which brings developers and users together to create tools that businesses really need. 

How It Works

Licences And Other Services

The Adaptable Blotter provides – out of the box – all the rich functionality which advanced users have come to expect from their datagrids. It includes powerful filtering, searching, editing and auditing tools to allow systems and their users to achieve their top performance. 


The Adaptable Blotter plugs and plays into whichever technologies you use, delivering a standardised interface across your organisation. Use the .JS edition for new HTML5 projects and the .NET edition for your legacy projects. 


The Adaptable Blotter integrates faultlessly with all existing blotters, whether Trade, Deal, Pricing, eTrading, Risk, Activity, Orders or any other type. 


The Adaptable Blotter extends the grids provided by the leading third party vendors.  You can choose whether to integrate it with your preferred commercial vendor grid, or with an open source grid or with our own Adaptable Grid.  Whatever you decide, you will have everything you need to build systems quicker and cheaper while enabling users to be more productive and efficient.

The Adaptable Blotter - a powerful DataGrid add-on - revolutionises the user interface of financial applications.


The Adaptable Blotter makes decisions easier, faster, and more reliable, enhancing productivity across systems throughout your organisation.
