To enhance the IPC service offering, Nectar is developing modules specific to IPC's trading platforms and unique compliance capabilities to enable firms to better verify that calls were recorded. The modules for IPC trading platforms have been designed to deliver in depth information about the environment and its relationship to other technologies within the trading floor eco-system. IPC's global customer support team will proactively monitor the voice recording, voice trading system and IPT voice infrastructure under a unified management structure with the tools essential to pinpoint the root cause of issues with systems, hardware or network elements.
