EPAM B2BITS' FIX Drop Copy Solution (FIXDCap) facilitates the retrieval of drop copy of trades from FIX-compliant Drop copy sources. It is available in the form of a library or an application server pre-configured to work with various FIX/FIXML sources. Both library based and standalone solutions inherit and leverage all features of FIX Antenna and FIXEdge accordingly, including easy configuration, administration and monitoring. The process of capturing drop copies using server-based FIXDCap is fully automated, while library FIXDCap can be easily integrated with the client's trading platform. In both cases, all the specifics of the connectivity are completely encapsulated and hidden. In addition, the FIXDCap package includes recovery tools, which allow requesting missing data in case of failures.

Software escrow is available on demand.
