Top 5 Reasons to Implement Screen Recording

Posted by Kevin Levi on Aug 13, 2014 11:16:00 AM

Agent productivity (or the number of calls your CSRs successfully handle) can mean the difference between thousands (or even hundreds of thousands) of dollars saved or spent each month in your call center, depending upon how large your center is.  Any efficiencies you can draw out of your agents will therefore yield tremendous bottom-line value. This is where call recording, and especially screen recording, comes into play.

When your agents are on the phone with your customers, they should be serving their needs quickly and effectively, by swiftly and accurately navigating the necessary screens on their desktop to access and input customer data, find product/service information, etc.  Sometimes these screens or workflows can be interrupted by navigational problems (by the agent or the system) or application glitches (not the agent's fault).  With screen recording software, you can monitor these workflows to identify any system or agent issues and remedy them at once.  As mentioned before, these fixes can translate into substantial time and cost savings for your call center.

Here are the top five reasons to record agent screen activity during customer interactions:

1. Identify application or system breakdowns that affect agent screen navigation

2. Discover areas to improve agent efficiency through additional skills training (for example, increasing proficiency with certain applications or workflows)

3. Uncover unauthorized personal activity by agents (for example, checking their own facebook or playing Solitaire during a customer interaction)

4. Identify PCI or HIPAA compliance issues upon data entry (such as the agent's screen erroneously displaying the credit card information upon entry when it's supposed to be masked).   

5. Record best-practice agent screen performance to share with underperforming agents

Agent screen recording solutions today can capture full motion video of the agent's desktop throughout the entire customer interaction.  This recording, synchronized upon playback with the corresponding agent and customer audio recording) gives supervisors and managers a clear, 360-degree view of exactly what transpired during a given customer interaction.  

For ease of retrieval, recordings (screen and audio) can be identified and accessed by date, user name, agent, phone number, and so on. These same recordings can be shared and viewed in industry-standard MPEG4 format and played or viewed on any desktop or capable mobile device.

How to Grow your Business-VoIP Customer Base

Posted by Kevin Levi on Apr 17, 2013 2:35:00 PM

The time is right for you to seriously consider going after the real estate and legal verticals.  According to Heavy Reading, these industries are the most primed right now for business VoIP services. 

Wouldn't it be great if you had something really distinguishing among your offerings to make you stand out from the competition?  That something extra is a call recording system - a logical extension to your other business VoIP services.

Call recording can be a simple add-on service to your existing portfolio that you could very easily turn on or off for existing or new clients.  Think about the possibilities.  You would be able to:

  • Upsell existing customers
  • Strengthen your value proposition
  • Extend your reach into real estate, legal and other markets
  • Differentiate your business from other business VoIP providers
  • Grow your business-VoIP practice
  • Expand your footprint among SOHO/SMB businesses

Call Recording for Real Real estate 3Estate SOHOs/SMBs

Real estate professionals conduct a lot of business over the telephone, and new call recording capabilities will enable them to show proof of compliance (if necessary), verify what was said during a conversation, help resolve "he-said-she-said" disputes and more. Both commercial and residential brokers will have an easy-to-access record of every call they make so they can easily pull a conversation and play it back to also verify something they may have forgotten.  Often times a deal can be lost by a broker who simply forgot to do something important.  Recorded calls help agents avoid these mistakes and keep their clients happy and on board.

With the right call recording solution in your business VoIP arsenal, you will also empower your customers with the ability to search through their recorded calls for all conversations associated with a specific agent or customer or time of day. Think about how powerful and useful that will be to their business.


Call Recording for Legal SOHOs/SMBs

Lawyers and legal associates spend over 75 percent of their time on the phone with clients and their representatives.  With the ability to record client calls, law offices can maintain compliance, resolve disputes, document litigation discussions, verify fee agreements with clients, maintain case continuity between phone-based and non-phone-based conversations, and so much more.

Law firms can monitor how compliant their legal clerks and administrative teams are on the phone and easily identify and fix any problems or skill gaps.

Recorded calls are also a great way for legal firms to keep track of billable time on the phone with a client or when speaking with someone on their behalf.  It is often times very easy to underestimate (or overestimate) how much time was spent on the phone, without an accurate record to refer back to.

Again, like with real estate, the right call recording solution enables your customers

 to search and locate specific conversations associated with a particular case, for example.  This can be extremely powerful for legal entities.

Finding the Right Call Recording System

You want a call recording system that fits easily and seamlessly into your existing communications environment, is easy to use, and quick to turn on/off for customers.  You also want a solution you don't have to maintain or troubleshoot, and for the real estate and legal industries in particular, you need a Total Recording (100 percent audio/screen capture) software product that records both the voices of the two parties, and the screen of your employee.
