IPC Systems has unveiled a vendor and customer app development partner programme for its Unigy trading communications platform.
The Affinity Partner Program will offer a framework for vendors and customers to develop collaboration and trading workflow applications using IPC's Blue Wave development platform for Unigy. Participant will have access to a software development kit, a virtual sandbox test environment, dedicated support and the APP portal.
The firm is hoping its programme will create an environment where participants can help increase competitive advantages by developing things such as productivity tools for traders and customised offerings to address the needs of specific business units.
Mark Miller, VP, product management, IPC, says: "The financial industry is moving toward a model favouring more open and integrated systems and IPC's Affinity Partner Program opens the door for market leading vendors to fully leverage the openness of the Unigy platform to develop innovative and powerful applications."
