Dean Witter Boosts OTC Desk With OS/2, NASDAQ Software


When Dean Witter Reynolds Inc.'s OTC trading desk moves to its new quarters on the 67th floor of 2 World Trade Center next month, it will be much changed. The stand-alone Quotron Systems Inc. terminals, the old Harris NASDAQ terminals and the IBM 3270 terminals will be gone.

In their place, each of Dean Witter's 40-odd OTC traders will find four side-by-side high-resolution 14" color monitors driven by an IBM PS/2 Model 80 workstation with 10 megabytes of RAM, a single keyboard and a mouse.
