Jersey City, N.J. – November 5, 2013 – In an effort to simplify business management and become more flexible, trading firms worldwide are increasingly using communications solutions that allow them to execute trades with mobile technology. Scotty D, an independent investment management firm in Hawaii, is now exclusively using IPC Systems’ Unigy Pulse Mobile unified trading solution alongside their existing IPC Network service connection for streamlined communications and infrastructure.
Scotty D’s shift to an all-mobile business practice gives them a competitive advantage over larger firms, as they can now provide international clients with a wider range of service capabilities anytime and anywhere they have an internet connection. The convenience of 24/7 accessibility will increase the efficiency of Scotty D’s trades and help organize their entire trading workflow.
