London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) has announced that ELITE Connect, its online connection platform for a wide range of market participants including public companies, investor relations professionals, institutional investors and brokers, is partnering with OpenExchange, the US based secure video service for corporate executives, investor relations officers, analysts and portfolio managers.
The agreement will allow ELITE Connect users to access OpenExchange’s patented online meeting technology, opening up further business opportunities for them across all continents. OpenExchange’s assisted meeting technology, providing operator supported connections at the start of online meetings and ELITE Connect’s self-service meeting capabilities, allowing users to open meetings directly, are underpinned by the same software. As a result both platforms are highly compatible and able to provide seamless inter connectivity between users.
