BT Radianz has launched a new integrated solution for firms operating in the financial and capital markets landscape. The firm reported that, BT One Voice Radianz, its new voice solution, is a cost-effective add-on to the existing cloud community. The move comes on the back of a number of developments BT has scheduled for the community.
The new voice solution is based on the existing infrastructure of BT Radianz and aims to unify costs and workflows for firms. It’s the first time BT is connecting products from its mainstream BT Global Services to the BT Radianz Cloud network.
Firms who sign up for the voice solution will no longer require separate connections for their unified communication services at sites connected to Radianz Cloud, this will directly affect the bottom line by reducing capital and operating costs.
Tom Regent, President, Global Banking & Financial Markets at BT commented about the launch in a statement, he said: “The BT Radianz Cloud is the world’s largest secure networked community for the financial services industry. An innovative cloud service in its own right, it has developed a reputation for being the platform of choice for financial markets customers to access thousands of applications from BT and more than 400 independent third-party providers across the entire trade cycle.
