Frequently, I do presentations for groups of brokers explaining how VOWs work, why they might want to build them for their firms, and what to expect of other VOWs in their marketplaces. I usually include screen shots from one or two VOWs as examples.

Periodically, I like to go out and find new VOWs to use as examples, to freshen things up. This time, I figured I’d ask brokers and VOW technology providers to toot their own horns.

If your brokerage firm has a knockout VOW, or your company builds knock-out VOWs for brokers, drop me a line with some URLs (and your permission for me to view the VOW(s) and use screen shots for presentations). I’ll let you know if I use your site as a model for other brokers.
