Sell-Side Technology Awards 2024: Best sell-side trading communication system—IPC Systems

Product: OneView Portfolio


OneView Portfolio enables integration of trader-voice activity with third-party applications and enterprise workflows. It facilitates integration and efficient management of fragmented and often disparate trading workflows running in and across multiple applications and platforms, and in the most complex trading and cross-enterprise environments.

This prestigious award is very welcomed and an industry acknowledgement both of our longstanding commitment to providing better, smarter and faster solutions to the global financial trading community, and to the continuing enrichment of the user experience in terms of our own industry-leading solutions, and through seamless access to and interoperability with the best third-party applications and platforms available today 

Tim Carmody, executive vice president and CTO, IPC Systems

The solution  

OneView Portfolio solves the problem of disparate applications and workflows by leveraging both OpenFin and an API-first strategy to deliver an optimized end-user experience. The Portfolio platform comprises OneView Workspace and touchscreen device that provides voice traders with a single at-a-glance view of trading information, and one-touch access to multiple associated applications and workflows. OneView is OpenFin-enabled, allowing users to access and exchange information seamlessly across desktops, platforms and devices.

Secret sauce  

OneView Portfolio:

  • Is OpenFin-enabled, providing seamless access to most industry standard applications, including OMS, EMS, CRM and analytics platforms
  • Provides a single-screen view of critical information to execute with precision and navigate through associated applications
  • Is built with an open architecture approach to support application integration and interoperability with adjacent workflows
  • Features native Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support

Recent milestones

  • OpenFin enablement: Leveraging partnership, interoperability and technological flexibility to support seamless and enhanced information exchange across platforms and devices
  • Large 12-inch touch screen device for single view, high-touch access to everything a voice trader needs to perform
  • Provides high-quality audio experience

Future objectives

  • OneView launched in November 2023, and 2024 will see the continuation of its global rollout, including product launches in major financial centers in Q1 and Q2 2024.
  • Expansion of open platform strategy: More partnerships similar to the OpenFin alliance

Why they won

IPC is back in the SST Awards winners’ circle after winning this category in last year’s SST Awards, although this time it is thanks to its OneView Portfolio offering as opposed to its ubiquitous and highly decorated Unigy platform. Key to OneView Portfolio’s success is its tight integration with OpenFin, allowing capital markets professionals to access and exchange information across desktops, platforms and devices. IPC knows a thing or two about how traders think and work and this new addition to the IPC stable will no doubt gain traction quickly as firms look to maximize their traders’ effectiveness, while simultaneously ensuring seamless information flow throughout the organization.
