IPC Information Systems, a leading provider of mission-critical trading floor communication solutions to global and local enterprises, opened its Malaysian operations in Kuala Lumpur today.
The office, located at Petronas Tower 2 at the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, is IPC's sixth office in Asia Pacific, with offices already established in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne. IPC currently serves more than 450 clients in 15 cities throughout the Asia Pacific region including many prestigious clients such as Barclays Capital, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup.
According to Mr. Stephen Phillips, Managing Director for IPC Asia Pacific, "IPC has over 30 years of industry experience and our solutions provide many benefits for clients that include improved user productivity and operational efficiency, enhanced business continuity and operational stability. Increased activity in South East Asian markets and the expanding and diverse demands of our customers has enabled IPC to broaden its presence in Southeast Asia. The vibrant Malaysian economy coupled with our established position as the market leader in Malaysia made Kuala Lumpur the obvious choice for our latest direct office," Mr. Phillips elaborated.
IPC's core solutions are rooted in the world of Financial Services, where it is recognised as being a world leader in communication systems. IPC was the first trading systems provider to offer Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and has over 29,000 users worldwide using this tried and tested technology platform. "This technology brings new benefits to our clients as enterprise- wide deployment allows for increasingly more advanced solutions. Additionally, IPC links thousands of traders to their counterparties instantly, over our managed private network infrastructure, in more than 200 cities across six continents," Mr. Phillips added.
The Kuala Lumpur office will be managed by Frankie Yong, Sales Director for South East Asia. Mr. Yong is well-versed in IPC technology, having spent the last 15 years working with IPC products and services. Mr. Yong said, "We currently have 64 financial services clients in Malaysia, and our KL office opening means that we are now one step closer to them. This proximity will ensure that we are better able to address the unique requirements of the financial community in Malaysia and South East Asia."
