IP Trade Flex Soft Turret


Linx-Networks has installed IP Trade T3 Flex soft turret on a major trading floor instead of using hardware. The soft turret is excellent for mobile users, start up trading floors or for large financial DR scenarios.  The T3 Flex Soft Turret Application has all of the rich visualization, workflow and single touch communications of a traditional trading turret now supported on a Windows® 7 (64bits) PC and Windows 8.1.
This enables customers to take advantage of the latest touchscreen technologies and choose the type of form factor and device that works best in their trading environment while also offering users unprecedented flexibility to navigate
among different applications on a single workstation.

T3 Flex supports all key trading workflow needs including multiple shared line appearances, high-capacity conferencing, intercom, barge-in, overflow call coverage, audio/video streaming, call history, speed dial directories and voice-recording replay.

The T3 Flex application offers the potential for traders to extend productivity beyond the trading floor and because T3 Flex runs in the same application environment as our T3 turrets, it is fully integrated with other trading applications such as voice recording and enterprise unified communications applications and endpoints.

T3 Flex also addresses key business requirements including: rapid site deployment, quickly accommodating new traders, trading system survivability, remote users and flexibility for business expansion.



IP Trade’s T3 Flex Soft Trading Turret Application offers trading professionals a comprehensive, streamlined trading turret communications experience on any Windows 7 device, maximizing flexibility and productivity.
Designed for flexibility, T3 Flex is deployed as a soft client application and features a high-capacity, customizable display with key telephony, hoot ‘n holler and intercom channels on a single screen, so traders can easily monitor all of their activity and access contacts at the touch-of-a-button. The intuitive User Interface is easy to learn and can be tailored to the specific workflows and needs of trading teams and individuals.

The T3 Flex solution integrates seamlessly with the IP Trade T3 Turret suite and associated applications, allowing a user to log in to the turret or soft application without the need for external assistance, providing a powerful option for free seating, business continuity and mobility.
