Success Story

The Energy Authority Maximizes Trader Productivity with OpenScape Xpert Trading Solution

In the fast-paced world of power and natural gas trading, every second counts. So when one of the nation’s largest energy trading operations needed to upgrade, The Energy Authority turned to Unify for a productive and efficient IP trading floor solution that helps traders close deals quickly and securely from any office. The OpenScape Xpert solution stood out from the competition with its reliability and versatility, powering both TEA’s trading floor operation and the day-to-day communications for the rest of the organization.

The Task

The Energy Authority (TEA), the Florida-based non-profit energy trading and portfolio management company, needed to ensure that its traders worked at optimum efficiency while also helping IT control costs.

The Solution

Working on a tight deadline, TEA replaced the trading floor’s hardware-based phone system with an IP-based phone system using Unify’s OpenScape Xpert solution. The solution unified the company’s offices on a single telephony and trading platform, allowing traders to move seamlessly between offices and experience the same trading environment and tools.

The Benefits

The new OpenScape Xpert trading solution from Unify allows traders to connect to the same trading floor environment from any office, improving trader mobility and productivity. Unify also improved disaster recovery by simplifying staff relocation, cutting IT costs, and reducing business risk.
