NICE Trading Recording and C9 Trader help financial services
organizations benefit from cost effective, reliable cloud-based

NICE (NASDAQ:NICE) and Cloud9 Technologies today announced
that the two firms have completed an integration of the NICE
Trading Recording System (NTR)
with Cloud9's
C9 Trader platform
. Now, financial services organizations can
leverage both companies' solutions together to ensure compliance with
regulations around recording and retaining trade communications, while
also benefitting from low-cost reliable cloud-based communications. The
integrated technology is already deployed and in use at a leading global
investment bank.

The industry's only ‘all-in-one' compliance-focused trade conversation
recording platform, NTR
is used by most of the world's leading banks and investment firms for
recording and retaining trade conversations. In addition to working with
the C9 Trader platform, NTR can also interface with other turrets, desk
phones, mobile phones, and Unified Communications platforms. NTR works
in tandem with NICE
, a unique compliance assurance solution that features
automated provisioning, system health checks, bulk call extraction
tools, transcription, compliance assurance reporting, and monitoring
dashboards, to help financial institutions ensure enterprise-wide
compliance with MiFID II and other regulations.

The C9
Trader platform
is becoming the voice standard for the trading
floor. By digitizing the entire institutional trader voice lifecycle and
providing innovative, secure and compliant means of delivering the
associated metadata, Cloud9 enables traders to uncover and seize the
value present within their voice trading conversations. In addition, C9
Trader's anywhere, anytime secure cloud communication platform enables
banks to reduce their communications costs by up to 50% by eliminating
expensive private lines and desktop hardware, easily scales up or down,
and can connect traders to counterparties anywhere in the world.

Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE, said, "Cloud-based
voice communications are gaining traction with banks as a viable option
for trader communications. Cloud-based or not, all trade-related
communications are subject to the same regulations and standards,
including MiFID II, Dodd Frank, MAR and FX Code of Conduct. Our
integration with C9 Trader will give financial services customers
confidence in their ability to comply with all regulations around
recording and retaining trader communications when using Cloud 9's C9
cloud-based trading platform."

Steve Kammerer, Chief Product Officer at Cloud9 Technologies, said,
"We're dedicated to working with other companies and industry groups
that enable best-of-breed solutions for our clients, and we're excited
