European stock exchange Euronext has selected Orange Business Services’ unified comms platform as it looks to future proof the needs of its trading desks.
The company will integrate the operator’s Business Together as-a-service solution, which Orange said would allow employees to access all their communication needs –presence management, phone lines, a unified inbox, instant messaging and remote conferencing services, including audio, web and video conferencing – from a single interface.
Business Together as-a-service is hosted and managed in Orange's datacentres and available via its Business VPN solution.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
Simon Wagstaff, Head of IT Infrastructure & Operations at Euronext, commented: “We were looking for a high-performance, flexible unified communications solution to support the changes in our business.”
The company has more than 1,300 issuers in Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris worth €2.8 trillion in market capitalisation.
Last month, OBS Chief Exec Thierry Bonhomme told European Communications that growing the business outside of France was one of the biggest challenges he faced.
OBS saw revenues rise 0.5 percent in the third quarter, mainly thanks to growth in security and cloud services.
Diana Einterz, Head of Major Accounts Division at Orange Business Services, commented: “Supporting our customers' digital transformation is our strategic priority.
“Euronext employees will enjoy access to new, enhanced, secure 100 percent cloud-based connected resources to better meet the needs of their customers on the financial markets.”
