NEW YORK, March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Glue42the company that provides integrated desktop experiences for financial institutions worldwide, and Irene (IRE.ASX) are teaming up to optimize the user experience for traders and wealth managers using the Iress (IOS+) ordering system by automating the workflow between IOS+ and other common applications on the financial desktop.

Russell ThorntonHead of Trading Strategy, Iress, said: “Our clients are inundated with information and as we evolve with their needs, it is imperative that the Iress ordering system works in harmony with other applications in the financial office. In isolation there is a limit because to what can be achieved and therefore allowing Iress to participate in cross-application workflows just made sense.”

Glue42’s desktop integration platform is helping us realize our vision at scale and in a cost-effective way. It’s a situation win-win for everyone.”

As part of this partnership, Glue42 has developed an Iress connector, a black box based on its enterprise solution that optimizes Iress IOS by accelerating trading workflows and enabling “click to sync”, a data synchronization with a single click between the Iress platform and other applications.

Common use cases include integration with popular applications on the trading desk to accelerate time to market, enable greater customization and increased efficiency, placing critical information at the fingertips of the trader. ‘user.

Technically, the Iress connector allows technology teams to eliminate lengthy point-to-point integration projects. As a result, our customers can implement solutions in days, not months.

The connector responds to continued customer demand and is available through the Glue42 Appliance Store, a concept that brings pre-packaged commercial components that support the rapid integration of two or more applications, to the modern trading desk. The store currently has 30 connectors across the business lifecycle that can be combined to create a myriad of different devices.

Reena RaichuraDirector, Head of Product Solutions, Glue42, said, “Many financial industry vendors are embarking on a digital journey by modernizing and redesigning their own platforms. Our goal is to facilitate this process and help suppliers connect with other third parties. third-party or in-house applications in a timely manner. In doing so, we want to ensure that we remove all technological constraints, so that our partners are better equipped throughout their digital transformation journey.
