The new technology is being sold through IPC’s UAE-based partner, Rashed Al Makhawi, a specialist in delivering mission-critical technology solutions for banking and finance sectors, to the growth markets of UAE, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait.
Vivek Raghavan, General Manager of Rashed Al Makhawi, said “Our customers are demanding the latest in trading communications technology, and Unigy is the ideal solution for their needs, allowing traders to maximise their productivity. Unigy has had extremely positive feedback from the market, with a strong turnout at our Dubai launch event, and similar positive interest received at the recent Gitex Technology Week show – we are confident that this momentum will continue amongst banks, small and medium sized brokerages and investment companies.”
“The Middle East is an extremely important market for IPC,” said Kevin Acott, Managing Director, EMEA, IPC. ”We are looking forward to building on our successful partnership with Rashed Al Makhawi, whose comprehensive regional knowledge and sector expertise will allow us to deliver this innovative new solution to existing and new clients.”
