How to Choose a Teams Call Recording Solution: 10 Reasons ClarifyGo Stands Out from the Crowd

Following the global pandemic and the rapid rise of remote work, many organizations have turned to Microsoft Teams as their main mode of communicating, both internally and with clients.

This in turn has forced businesses to look for solutions that provide the additional capabilities that they've been used to on their legacy telephony, whether that's contact centre features, analytics or call recording - all in the name of call management, intelligence, performance and compliance.

The Need For Compliant Recording

Compliance remains the chief reason that organisations record their calls. When it comes to recording Teams conversations for such purposes, particularly in industries that require a higher compliance level such as finance, it’s important to ensure that your chosen solution is suited to your requirements. Whilst Teams does have an inbuilt native recording system in place, it lacks the bigger features and functionality for analysis and compliance needs, and you’ll need to look to a third-party solution.

Depending on the different regulations that govern an organization, such as MiFID, Dodd-Frank, HIPAA, and GDPR, your call recording solution will need to satisfy any stipulated requirements. Some call recorders may only capture traditional phone lines (PSTN lines) and not Teams calls, which means they miss a lot of information. Others can’t capture internal conversations, which is required under MiFID II legislation.

Oak’s call recording solution, ClarifyGo for Microsoft Teams, captures everything your business needs to meet compliance requirements, supports service improvements, and helps mitigate security risks.
