Proactive Call Extraction: Identifying Risks Before They Happen

Another day another regulation: Identifying Risks before they happen with Call Extraction

As data regulations continue to tighten, trade reconstruction has become a priority for compliance managers in the financial sector. No longer is it enough simply to record telephone transactions and keep them filed away in a database somewhere, just in case. With the stakes for data and privacy infringements higher than ever, compliance demands a proactive approach, the ability to turn call recording into actionable 360-degree insight so risk factors can be spotted and issues resolved before they happen.

One of the scenarios compliance may come across is how to integrate sophisticated analytics platforms with legacy call recording systems for effective data extraction – which is where a tool like Wordwatch comes in.

Let’s take an example. Helen is Head of Compliance at a large multi-national bank. She knows full well that the implications of MiFID II regulations require a more proactive approach.

Despite her organisation handling thousands of calls and communications every day, she recognises the need to have eyes on exactly what is happening across all trades so she and her team can identify potential risks at the earliest possible moment.

Legacy Call Recording FAQs

Legacy Call Recording FAQs


Can I integrate an existing legacy call recording system with a modern, up-to-date solution? 

Yes this is possible. With a multi-vendor centralised voice recording replay portal, this solution will sit on top of any existing legacy (and also live) call recording systems. A solution such as this is able to access calls from multiple call recording systems, regardless of age, manufacturer or geographic location. This unique portal sits above live and legacy systems (cloud or on-premise), providing a single point of access for all recordings.


What are some of the benefits of simplifying your call recording infrastructure?

  • Eliminates support costs by only having to maintain one solution instead of multiple
  • Lower cost of ownership by eliminating internal resources dedicated to managing obsolete systems

Does upgrading your Workforce Management software really pay for itself?

Does upgrading your Workforce Management system pay for itself

Is your Workforce Management still fit for purpose?  If your WFM solution is up for renewal, stop and think if it’s really working for you.

Although the initial cost of implementing a workforce management solution may appear large, a quick return on investment can be achieved by not only significantly reducing the amount of time spent creating forecasts, schedules and reporting, but also by being able to create accurate forecasts that ensure you have the “right person, right place, right time” and avoid overstaffing whilst providing a great service.

With the emergence of new technologies, customer expectations regarding how and when they wish to get in touch with a contact centre have increased substantially as well as their expectations on the quality of the service received. In order to meet these expectations having the right number of agents, that are multi-skilled, flexible and available to support customer demand on a number of different channels, plays a crucial role in ensuring service levels are met.

4 Steps to Creating an IVR Programme that Customers Don’t Hate

4steps for creating an IVR program

Interactive Voice Recognition (IVR) technology was hailed as a major breakthrough for contact centre operators. With software that can interpret and act on cues from speech in natural usage, it brought about the opportunity to automate large chunks of call processing.

With IVR making a range of self-service options available over the telephone, there is no longer a need to have an agent answer every call. Average costs per call have therefore fallen, while agents freed from handling basic queries can be deployed to focus on adding value through exceptional customer service.

There was just one problem – customers didn’t like IVR.
