LEAN WORK partners with Spotware: cTrader integration

11th October 2017

LEAN WORK, China’s leading SaaS provider, recently enters into partnership with Spotware Systems and successfully completed integration with cTrader. The partnership is a win-win scenario not just for both companies but for new and existing Chinese and international brokers as well.

Announced earlier this year, the integration aims to further improve the services and reach of Lean Work to make it a truly global company.

With the integration fully in place, Chinese brokers can add the cTrader platforms more easily to help to differentiate their product offerings in the market. The successful integration has already generated large interest in China.

PaaS for SaaS: Symbiotic Relationship

After successfully penetrating and leading the SaaS Service in China’s capital market, Lean Work has set its sights on entering the European market, formally setting up its EU operation in Limassol, Cyprus. Dedicated towards building the most prominent FX Customer Relationship Management (CRM) brand not only in China, but all over the world, the successful partnership with Spotware was a crucial and integral step towards that goal.

Through Spotware, LEAN WORK services are seamlessly integrated within the award-winning direct market access platform, cTrader. cTrader has been attracting brokers looking to enhance or introduce STP solutions. As a neutral fintech provider, the platform is widely considered as a means of access to a sophisticated client base concerned with issues of trust, delays and transparency.

The benefits of cTrader go beyond providing this kind of access and assurance; the platform also allows its partners to build their own applications in the cloud, and license the final product to their customers as a SaaS solution. Partners then seamlessly bring their innovation to the existing ecosystem of Spotware.

The partnership also ensures better user experience for cTrader brokers who choose LEAN WORK products. Through the integration, cTrader brokers can enjoy a seamless and efficient onboarding process with a real-time interactive client portal. They can also access Lean Work’s flagship products such as Broker Work which offers an all-in-one solution including Forex CRM, Back Office and IB portal.

With this partnership, new FX brokers are assured of fast deployment from the ready-to-use turnkey solutions. Brokers who offer Multiple Trading Platforms can manage all CRM and Operation with one SaaS Solution.

When asked about the partnership, LEAN WORK CEO, Darren Qian had this to say, “We are positive that this new partnership will help serve our clients better. We are excited to take this step forward as we move closer to our goal to be the leading FX CRM brand in the world.”

James Glyde, Spotware Systems Chief Commercial Officer, adds, “This fully functional tool is a great addition to our platform. We welcome this development as we strive to improve our services for clients both from the east and the west.
