New York – October 6th, 2021 – IPC, a leading provider of secure, compliant communications and multi-cloud connectivity solutions for the global financial markets, announced today that its industry-leading solution for Traders to work remotely, Unigy Soft Client, is now Citrix Ready.
Citrix Ready is a technology partner program that helps software and hardware vendors of all types develop and integrate their products with Citrix technology for Digital Workspace, Networking, and Analytics. To earn the Citrix Ready designation, partners must validate their solutions through a robust testing and verification process that ensures compatibility with Citrix solutions.
Unigy Soft Client provides users with the same functionality, consistency, and flexibility that is expected from Unigy, regardless of location. The application can be rapidly deployed and delivers powerful features with the same intuitive look & feel and workflow as the end-user interface of the IQ/MAX Touch financial terminal. Traders and other regulated users can replicate virtually the same experience they have physically in the office anywhere, including at home.
“Today’s traders demand a consistent experience wherever they work. Trading firms now need to have the ability to trade flexibly from anywhere– in a secure and compliant manner,” commented Joseph Pickel, VP Product Strategy, IPC. “This is an enormous competitive benefit in an uncertain and ever-shifting environment.”
Used in conjunction with Citrix Workspace™, Unigy Soft Client enables traders and all regulated users to:
- Access their office work environment from anywhere using a virtual desktop infrastructure – no VPN needed
- Leverage a unified communication solution created with today’s evolving trading needs in mind
- Switch seamlessly between a turret and a soft client on a laptop or desktop device
- Do their best work with a seamless workspace experience using a soft trading platform flexibly deployed, managed, and maintained from a centralized infrastructure
“The modern workplace of today relies on real-time collaboration whether it’s an audio call among a few team members or a video conference hosting a large group of attendees. We are glad to onboard IPC to our ecosystem of Unified Communications solutions,” says John Panagulias, Director, Technology Partner Programs, Citrix. “Together IPC and Citrix help provide an integrated solution with a consistent user experience across various device types and platforms – even helping to enable capabilities on platforms without native client support.”
