Speakerbus, the leading provider of innovative mission-critical voice collaboration solutions for financial institutions, today announced that Clarksons Platou Futures (CPF), the leading freight futures and specialist commodity derivative broker has deployed Speakerbus’ iTurret solution as its specialist voice broking platform in London and Singapore.

Speakerbus’ iTurret provides specialist trader voice capabilities and private line connectivity that enables CPF’s brokers to rapidly respond to developments in the dynamic freight and commodity markets.

Alex Gray, CEO Clarksons Platou Futures said, “Our Singapore office had already deployed the Speakerbus iTurrets and was extremely happy with the solution and its benefits to our business were proven. We therefore decided to replace the London legacy platform with the Speakerbus solution. We were very impressed with Speakerbus’ project approach, which was key to ensuring a quick time to market.” He adds, “The ability for our IT team to centrally manage the iTurrets, wherever they are located, together with the iTurret’s certified interoperability with our Cisco UC and Redbox voice recording platforms have helped us to considerably reduce IT staff hours previously spent on operational tasks.”

Roy Williamson, Sales & Marketing Director at Speakerbus, said, “We are delighted to extend our business relationship with Clarksons Platou Futures, and to increase our solution deployments in the freight and commodities sectors. As the fastest growing trading turret company, we are seeing more and more institutions across the financial services sector facing similar challenges to CPF. They are looking to maximise investment in unified communications technology and no longer want the huge cost of maintaining proprietary trader voice platforms. As a vendor dedicated to mission-critical voice technology, we are at the forefront of developing ‘right-sized’ solutions to fit an organisation’s requirements at a greatly reduced cost.” He adds, “We look forward to working with CPF to deliver solutions that drive their success and to expanding our global partnership in the future.”

With a client base across capital markets, commodities, hedge funds and brokerage sectors, the Speakerbus iSeries platform provides proven and compliant solutions for voice-based trading across multiple asset classes. Speakerbus enables organisations to replace legacy dealerboard platforms with a range of cost-effective, high performance, endpoint options, that are compliant, self-manageable, maximise investment in existing infrastructure and reduce private line leasing costs.
