New York, NY – March 16, 2009 —Wesley Clover Solutions, a leading provider of next-generation voice communications platforms for financial trading firms, today announced the latest implementation of their total voice solution for a Top 25 U.S. hedge fund.
The solution provides both an integrated enterprise voice communications platform for the firm’s 60 office support staff and trading turret capabilities for their trading desk of 10. All users have access to more than 500 system features and functions including unified messaging, mobility, IM and presence.
“Historically, small-to-medium sized trading firms needed to install and manage two voice systems in every location, one for office staff and one for traders. Our system accommodates all employees, globally on a single IP platform,” stated Chris Corridon, Senior Vice-President of Marketing for Wesley Clover Solutions. “This platform is designed to accommodate both advanced trading and enterprise voice applications at a reasonable price. In addition, its scalability and flexibility enables customers to add staff in their current locations or branch offices with minimal expense, lead time or local IT resources.
The Wesley Clover Solutions mission is to bring badly needed innovation to the voice trading communications market. They have focused on integrating the needs of small-to-medium sized trading floors, which represents more than 85% of the market, with the voice communications platform of the rest of the enterprise.
