IPC Systems, Inc. Deploys First Unigy System in Minsheng Life Insurance
Apr 23 13
IPC Systems, Inc. announced that Minsheng Life Insurance has successfully implemented Unigy, IPC's revolutionary unified trading communications platform. Using the Unigy backbone, Minsheng will deploy IPC's IQ/MAX Edge 100 turrets across its enterprise. This implementation underscores IPC's expanded growth into the Asia-Pacific market with the first Unigy customer signing in mainland China. Minsheng Life Insurance was seeking to upgrade from a traditional communications system to a new infrastructure that would help speed communication between counterparties as well as increase collaboration across offices. After evaluating several PBX vendors, the company chose IPC's IQ/MAX Edge powered by the Unigy platform. The IQ/MAX Edge is designed specifically to provide individuals in small to medium-sized trading firms, as well as junior traders, sales traders and other individuals on the edge of the trading floor in larger firms, the key capabilities they need to optimize their collaboration with trade support individuals across the entire trading lifecycle and workflow. IQ/MAX Edge 100 has 100 buttons for contacts within and outside a firm, hoot and intercom connectivity and dual handsets. Every IQ/MAX Edge also comes equipped with IQ/MAX Sync -- a powerful PC-based productivity tool that allows users to manage calls, speakers, contacts and directories directly from a PC. IQ/MAX Sync integrates with users' Microsoft Outlook local directory to help them simplify workflow processes. Among Edge's other features are broad, full-color, high-definition screens that make data easy to read; high-definition audio for more accurate exchange of information; and an application launch pad for Unigy(TM) apps that improve trade processing and productivity. IQ/MAX Edge is powered by Unigy -- IPC's revolutionary unified trading communications and applications platform, introduced earlier in the month. The Unigy platform's open standards and service oriented architecture (SOA) helps streamline trading workflow, create custom apps for a competitive edge, reduce operational risks and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for firms of all sizes.
