London-based Investment Bank Deploys Wesley's Latest Voice Communication Platform
February 23, 2009
Wesley Clover Solutions, a provider of next-generation voice communications platforms, has announced the company’s latest voice communication solution has been implemented in one of the largest London-based investment banks.
Officials at Wesley said the latest voice application deployed in the investment bank provides an integrated enterprise voice platform for the firm's general office personnel and trading floor staff in a bid to build out their presence in the U.S.
Employees of the bank can get access to more than 500 system features and functions including advanced applications like unified messaging, mobility, IM and presence. The system is connected by a high-capacity IP-WAN to their London offices allowing the IT team to manage and monitor the system in real-time.
"Opening and supporting offices offshore is a particular pain point for small-to-medium sized financial trading companies," said Chris Corridon, senior vice president of Marketing for Wesley Clover Solutions.
He said that they are providing a single point of contact for a cost-effective, turnkey solution that is connected to their global telephony infrastructure in London.
The bank’s IT staff can 'remote control' day-to-day system management and call Wesley for local technical support. Users in both locations can communicate via 4-digit dialing or can even instant message.
