“We’re very proud of our partners and it is great to see so many that epitomize and emulate our customer-first attitude and company values,” said Bob Santella, CEO of IPC. “Partners are integral to IPC and we view our business and theirs as two sides of the same coin; we provide top-of-the-line products and services while they provide critical local knowledge and expertise in their respective domains. Congratulations to the three winners of this year’s top spots.”
IPC’s global channel partner program was launched three years ago. Since then, the initiative has matured and now consists of 71 carefully vetted, specialist channel partners. Regular communication and tailored partner strategy realignment have contributed to the continual success of the program. All channel partners must adhere to program requirements maintaining up-to-date knowledge of IPC offerings, as well as regular due diligence reporting to meet IPC’s high standards and ensure the best service to customers around the globe.
IPC brings together one of the largest and most diverse global financial ecosystems spanning all asset classes and market participants. It connects financial market participants to liquidity venues in countries comprising over 80 percent of the global GDP, including access to emerging and frontier markets. Combining the channel partners’ local knowledge and expertise and IPC’s award-winning solutions means that IPC’s network extends into 56 countries across the globe. Specialist channel partners become an extension of the IPC organization, providing the latest products, consultancy and customer support.
To select this year’s award winners, IPC’s channel management team rigorously evaluated every IPC channel partner against the following criteria:
