"We are delighted to have the support of AmInvestment Bank Berhad as a key partner in Beta testing Unigy."
IPC Systems, Inc., the provider of trading communications solutions, has announced that AmInvestment Bank Berhad has agreed to trial IPC's new game-changing trading communication system, Unigy™. Unigy was launched in March 2011 and offers a single, unified platform for communications and applications.
AmInvestment Bank Berhad will be testing the Unigy platform on its trading floor in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. As part of the initial Beta, the company will also be implementing two of the new Unigy-enabled devices and applications which were recently launched: the first, IQ/MAX Edge, a new turret/dealerboard which offers much of the key functionality of an IQ/MAX turret, in a compact package; and IQ/MAX Sync, an application that facilitates "software control" of the turret to manage calls, speakers and directories directly from the trader's PC. AmInvestment Bank Berhad will be replacing both of its existing legacy backroom systems, IPC's Tradenet MX and Alliance, with a single Unigy backroom.
"We have held discussions with IPC in recent months about the Unigy roll out and we are extremely excited to be trialing such a progressive trading communications solution," said John Tan, Director/Head of Equity Markets, AmInvestment Bank Berhad. "Our previous experience with IPC has proven to us that the company really understands the changing needs of the financial services industry. As our global clients face ever more diversified needs, we will continue to embrace the creative solutions required to meet them. Unigy promises increased productivity and collaboration, lower TCO and higher ROI, as well as a centralised management system so we are truly excited to experience the positive impact it will have on our trading floor," added Mr. Tan.
"We are delighted to have the support of AmInvestment Bank Berhad as a key partner in Beta testing Unigy our latest innovation, the Unigy platform, gives our customers in Asia and around the globe more integration between off-floor and on-floor trading processes," said Michael Speranza, senior vice president, Marketing & Product Management, IPC Systems. "Unigy's integrated platform for communications and applications gives firms the capability to use out-of-the-box apps to speed trader workflow, or develop their own applications using Unigy's Blue Wave Application Development Platform. The platform also allows the off-floor staff to access communications used by traders so that they can instantly bring together the appropriate team members on a call."
