IPC and Custodia Announce Integration on BlueWave Platform

New York, USA and London, UK — August 20, 2019 — IPC, a leading global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the financial markets community, and Custodia Technology, a communications compliance solution specialist, announce today Custodia’s integration with IPC’s BlueWave Application Development Platform. The new Custodia-BlueWave interoperability will enable financial organizations to harmonize voice and data management, as well as greatly increase efficiencies, across their individual compliance estate.

“There has been considerable change to regulatory standards at the same time that vendors have become more fragmented in their product offerings and service delivery,” said Chris Hartley, Chief Executive Officer, Custodia. “We listened to what our clients have been asking for and continue to build a strong, independent 360-degree delivery model, around centralization of management of the voice recording estate, with a focus on automation.”

The collaboration will allow Custodia to add more bespoke software solutions, integrated within BlueWave, to improve voice and data capture and retention strategies so that clients are better positioned to achieve compliance with the latest financial regulatory requirements. BlueWave is designed for integration with IPC’s industry-leading Unigy platform, the heart of IPC’s trading ecosystem, boasting more than 6,400 financial institutions. BlueWave facilitates rapid application development for deeper insights into the trading workflow.

“The global financial markets are moving toward a model favoring more open and integrated systems,” said Joseph Pickel, Vice President of Product Strategy, IPC. “Collaboration with other pioneers in regulatory compliance makes the IPC ecosystem stronger, which is why we’re so excited to debut today’s new working relationship.”
