Davenport & Company LLC Chooses WiredRed’s e/pop®
Company-wide Instant Messaging
San Diego, California – December 2, 2003 – WiredRed®, a
technology leader in enterprise real-time communications software, today
announced that Davenport & Company LLC, a full-service firm offering
comprehensive investment services, has deployed e/pop® for more efficient
communications. WiredRed’s e/pop is a secure instant messaging and comprehensive
real-time communications system designed for business.
e/pop is used by Davenport’s 400 brokers, sales support and IT personnel in 19
branch offices throughout Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina to securely
deliver important market information, notify personnel about urgent phone calls
and to send company-wide alerts about IT-related issues.
According to Mike Eckler, Davenport’s Vice President of Information Services,
e/pop has become an invaluable component of the company’s communication
infrastructure that has decreased dependency on the phone system to deliver
“We realized several years ago that we needed a secure, high priority
communications channel that relays information with a sense of urgency not
provided by email,” Eckler said. “With e/pop we can group individuals by
department to allow sales support to talk with brokers. We have it set up so the
IT department can IM the entire company in seconds to notify all personnel that
a particular application is down or about potential network outages.”
Davenport & Company LLC also utilizes WiredRed’s e/pop Audit and Reporting
Server as a method to achieve compliance with U.S. regulations requiring the
recording and archiving of electronic communications. The e/pop Audit and
Reporting Server is the only product currently available that meets key
requirements for supervisory access to electronic correspondence. Using a roles
and permissions-based approach, the Server allows a company to designate
specific individuals with the right to access multiple levels of data in the
e/pop system based on a company’s own unique supervisory hierarchy.
