CHICAGO, Feb. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvergEx Group, a leading technology company, today announced that Eze Castle Software has launched a new full-service office in Chicago, Illinois for its award-winning order management system, the Eze OMS™. The new office will provide full support for Eze OMS clients in the greater Midwest region, spanning from Minnesota to Ohio.
"In the last year we added a record number of new clients worldwide and in the Midwest our client base more than doubled," said Edward Bee, director of Western and Midwestern consulting for ConvergEx's Eze Castle Software. "Localized service and account management is the cornerstone of our high-touch service model and our clients appreciate the additional level of service and support we are able to provide with the launch of our Chicago office."
Chicago is the latest extension of Eze's regionalized global support model and follows the opening of new offices in Hong Kong in 2008, Sydney, Australia in 2009 and Singapore in 2010. Eze also has full-service offices in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Stamford and London.
"Having been an Eze client for over ten years, I have always received timely and highly efficient operational support from our dedicated consultants," said Tom Bonenberger, managing member of Chicago-based ClearFunds Group, LLC. "With the opening of Eze's Chicago office, we are looking forward to building on our relationship and continuing to incorporate the many new features that are continually added to the Eze OMS."
"During the economic downturn we made a strategic decision to buck the common trends by aggressively ramping up investments in our people and products," said Tom Gavin, chief executive officer of ConvergEx's Eze Castle Software. "The results speak for themselves. We have continued our streak of double-digit revenue growth each year since the company's inception. We have launched multiple new offices around the globe and we have released significant functionality enhancements across all four major modules of the Eze OMS suite, including portfolio management, compliance, trading and operations."
The award-winning Eze OMS leverages a real-time open architecture to streamline the investment cycle for all asset classes -- from idea generation through settlement. The Eze OMS provides functionality to support portfolio management, compliance, trading and operations in a single platform.
