Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions, the leader in voice and electronic trading infrastructure and services for the trading communities, today announced that leading UK interdealer broker Arian Financial has selected Open Trade as its innovative trading communications platform of choice. Open Trade is a touch screen, multimedia, smart turret seamlessly integrating voice, video, email, instant messaging and web-based applications onto one communications device.
Implemented this month at Arian Financial’s UK headquarters, the company chose Open Trade to take advantage of the turret’s compactness which has saved the firm as much as 50 per cent desk real estate. The platform’s superior sound quality was also a key selling point since Arian’s business is led by voice communication along with its reliability and efficiency. Open Trade’s sleek design, colour coding and ease of use also attracted Arian Financial to the platform.
“Upgrading our technology to Open Trade was a must for us, it’s simple to understand, manage and was easy to deploy. The desk space saved has been immense and the sound quality has made a huge amount of difference to our brokers. Open Trade is the future of trading technology and incorporates all the different applications a modern trader needs with efficiency. Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions has a clear grasp of what is required in a trading room and have considered all aspects thoroughly,” said John Meadows, senior partner at Arian Financial”.
