Eyretel and Riverside Technologies Announce Strategic Partnership Tuesday 12 February 2002 PDF Print Chicago Board of Options and Chicago Board of Trade become first clients to benefit from the new alliance. Calverton, MD, February 12, 2002 - Eyretel (London: EYR), a leading global provider of voice and data recording, quality monitoring, and analysis systems for customer experience management, and Riverside Technologies, a full service telecommunications company, announced they have formed a strategic partnership to bring world class recording technology to the financial services industry. Riverside Technologies will sell, install, and service Eyretel's MediaTrader in customer sites, integrating the recording software with such trader telephone systems as IPC, Syntegra, and V-Band. Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), a Riverside-serviced client and one of Eyretel's largest financial trading clients, will immediately receive the benefits of the new partnership by having a single point of contact for Eyretel service and sales through Riverside. Further, The Chicago Board of Options Exchange (CBOE), a Riverside client, recently purchased and installed new Eyretel recording systems as a result of the partnership. Eyretel's MediaTrader is a highly scaleable and robust call recording system for financial trading organisations. Financial services have strict compliance, risk management, and internal auditing requirements that require secure and reliable recording. MediaTrader is the only recording technology currently available that has a true graphical interface for search and retrieval of traders' telephone calls. This capability enables traders to settle questionable trades more quickly, saving both time and money. In addition, the analytic capabilities will help organizations improve the skills and productivity of the traders and enhance the trading process, ultimately improving profitability. "Eyretel's strength lies in its ability to integrate with multiple turret systems," said Gerald Valenti, president of Riverside Technologies. "We have partnered with them because this flexibility enables us to provide the best recording solution to every customer, regardless of their current system." "Riverside Technologies is the premier and preferred provider of technology solutions to the financial services market," said James Reid, vice president, global financial markets, Eyretel plc. "We believe they deliver the high level of technical expertise and customer service that financial organizations need for their mission-critical recording requirements." -ends- About Eyretel Eyretel is a global provider of voice and data recording and analysis solutions for contact centers.
