Green Key Technologies, a two-year old company that specializes in voice-activated software for traders, won a big endorsement in September. Two Chicago-based trading ﬁrms, DRW and Eagle Seven, like its products so much they bought part of the company.
“Their voice software removes barriers for traders, lowers costs for brokers and increases compliance within the ﬁnancial markets,” said Don Wilson, chief executive ofﬁcer of DRW. “Green Key has changed the way our traders interact with the marketplace,” said Chris Lorenzen, CEO of Eagle Seven.
One of Green Key’s ﬂagship products is its “Trader Voice Box,” a software program designed to mimic the functionality offered by the traditional telephone turrets that sit on a trader’s desk. Green Key says its product gives traders and brokers unlimited direct connections to their trading contacts over the company’s VolP network. The company also says its product can integrate into systems designed to record and store conversations for compliance purposes, a key need in the current regulatory landscape.
