New York, NY – June 16, 2010 – Wesley Clover Solutions, a leading provider of IP voice communications platforms for financial trading firms and command and control centers, today announced the launch of the XP-22 IP Trading Desktop. The XP-22 is the latest addition to the Crossover Series, a multimedia trading desktop offering innovative communications capabilities designed to optimize workflow and increase productivity for trading floor teams.
“Communications in the trading environment is rapidly evolving into a multimedia experience, involving people both on and off the trading floor,” said Scott Harper, Vice- President of Product Management for Wesley Clover Solutions. “The XP-22 is designed to give financial trading firms the flexibility to manage all types of communications and make their users as productive as possible wherever they are located.”
The new XP-22 IP Trading Desktop is designed to give market participants instant connections to their most important contacts whether they are on the trading floor, in the back office or on the road. In addition to more than 500 standard features, the XP-22 enables unified multimedia communications encompassing phone calls, instant messages, presence information, call history, floating answer keys, contact directories and rich collaboration tools for audio/video/web conferencing and document sharing. The XP-22 can be securely integrated with Microsoft applications like Outlook and Active Directory and RIM’s Blackberry mobile devices to further enhance productivity and mobility.
“The financial markets are not limited to those who sit on a trading floor with a traditional turret. There is a huge need for a smaller, more versatile trading desktop that links traders with sales people, analysts, back office and other staff within a trading firm,” stated Chris Corridon, Senior Vice-President of Marketing for Wesley Clover Solutions. “The XP-22 incorporates the attributes of a turret with the form factor and functionality of a unified communications platform capable of supporting a variety of IP phones, mobile devices and applications.”
The Wesley Clover Solutions Crossover Series enables users to mix and match an array of IP desktop devices and applications enabling them to visualize, prioritize and control all types of communications instantly. As an advanced, powerful and flexible IP Trading Desktop Platform, the Crossover Series is designed to suit every type of trader from Portfolio Manager to Power Trader to Trading Assistant. The Crossover Series significantly reduces the ‘per position’ price and eliminates price spikes associated with turret system breakpoints. The entire system control platform is comparable in price to a single interface card in a traditional turret.
Wesley Clover Solutions designs, sells, installs and maintains voice communications platforms for financial trading organizations, global enterprises and command and control centers. Wesley Clover Solutions meets the growing demand for expertise in managing the transition from Legacy to IP voice communications solutions while reducing risks, complexity and costs. The Company’s flagship Crossover Series of IP Desktop Trading Platforms blends the instant communications capability and capacity of traditional turrets with the advanced functionality of IP-PBX in a single IP platform.
