VoIP Recording

IP Telephony represents the next great evolution in contact center communications. Mercom Audiolog IP Recording Server supports direct VoIP recording for contact centers that utilize the leading IP solutions, including those by Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, Genesys, Alcatel and NEC (In addition, we support H.323 protocol systems). Mercom Audiolog IP Recording Server receives, records, and archives Agents' VoIP audio. The same agent and call events can be used to drive advanced Mercom recording applications including Mercom IRIS Scheduler, criteria-based recording, and Mercom Screen Recording. Mercom Audiolog IP Recording Server is designed to enable compliance-based (full-time) recording, criteria-driven recording (for example, recording calls from particular DNIS), as well as quality-focused (part-time sampling) recording.

CTI-based Recording

Mercom's IRIS Scheduler provides total control of Audiolog voice and screen recording. IRIS Scheduler allows you to assign profiles to groups of agents that are used to determine the type of calls to be recorded based on call information received from the CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) link. You can selectively record calls by CTI criteria filtering that includes: incoming / outgoing calls, internal / external calls, CLID, DNIS, and Routes.

IRIS allows you to define rules for the percentages of calls matching the assigned criteria to be recorded and optionally the percentage to be flagged for evaluation with Mercom Interaction Quality.

Customer Application-Driven Recording

Mercom's Recorder Application Programming Interface ActiveX control ( RAPI-X ) enables custom integration and control of Audiolog by your software developers. Among other things, developers using C++ or Visual Basic can easily integrate the core functions of Mercom's products (call recording, database search, and playback) into your center's primary business applications, enabling customizable call center software to dynamically control start and stop of recording for each Agent, and to attach transaction-specific data to each recording (such as customer account number or identifier). Other functions supported include performing "free seating" functions (Agent log-on and log-off), database query functions, and data insertion functions.

Note: "free seating" can be done through the telephone system log-in without the use of RAPI-X when equipped with CTI.

Agent-Initiated Recording

Mercom's Record-on-Demand Network Interface application ( RODNI ) allows individual agents to start and stop Audiolog recordings of their telephone conversations from their Microsoft Windows desktop. Optionally, RODNI can also start and stop recordings of activities on their computer screen, and allow agents to tag recordings with call specific information.

Trunked Radio Recording

Mercom's optimized trunk radio recorders are engineered to handle the highest PTT rates, and let you quickly and easily locate and replay incidents by talkgroup and radio ID. Through tightly-coupled integration with leading trunked radio systems, Mercom efficiently records and stores both trunked and conventional transmissions. Call takers and administrators can tag calls and insert notes for easy retrieval and future searches.

A Powerful Feature Set Designed for Business Users

Audiolog provides a range of features designed for business users, including:

Recording

A high performance, multimedia recording platform, Audiolog offers a variety of configuration options, ranging from a single recorder/playback unit to multiple, networked recording servers for larger or multiple sites. It can capture screens and data from a variety of sources, including digital, analog, and IP telephones; PBXs, ACDs, and dialer systems; text/SMS; email; and Web chat.

Search and Playback

Audiolog offers client and browser playback options to meet the needs of a wide range of contact centers. Its state-of-the-art, Web-based multimedia search and playback tool allows simultaneous, synchronous playback of captured interactions. Supervisors can quickly search for, access, and play recordings from their desktops via a Web browser to gain a better understanding of what occurred during specific interactions. Advanced querying capabilities support a broad range of search criteria across multiple communications channels.

Audiolog can make it easy to handle a wide range of tasks remotely, such as scheduling recordings, performing playback, and managing and configuring the system. This is particularly useful for contact centers with complex operations or multiple sites. You can secure captured interactions from unauthorized access and assign each user playback and monitoring rights by channel or agent. A playback audit trail helps you keep track of unauthorized incidents and abuse.

Quality Monitoring

Audiolog's optional Audiolog Interaction Quality software can help your contact center improve agent performance and enhance customer satisfaction. With this powerful, browser-based quality monitoring software, supervisors can play back captured interactions, evaluate agent performance, build new scoring forms, and access a broad selection of quality management reports-on site or remotely-all from their desktops.

Evaluation forms can be designed quickly to address new products and programs. You can retrieve and score them easily-even attach them to email messages with their associated voice and/or text files-enabling supervisors and quality evaluators to respond more effectively in the fast-paced contact center environment. Standard and customizable reports present performance details, summaries, and trends that can be delivered automatically. Supervisors can use this intelligence to identify agent skill gaps and provide targeted coaching, pinpoint and address process inefficiencies and trends, and gain insight into delivering a superior customer experience.

Better still, Audiolog Interaction Quality provides calibration functionality that can help your contact center foster consistency in quality scoring performed by multiple quality reviewers. For even greater insight into performance, Audiolog Interaction Quality can correlate evaluated behaviors with external key performance indicators, such as monthly customer satisfaction indices or weekly sales revenue, to help you align quality improvement efforts with your organizational objectives and identify opportunities for improvement.

Remote Operation

Audiolog can make it easy to handle a wide range of tasks remotely, such as scheduling recordings, performing call playback-even managing and configuring the system. This is particularly useful for contact centers with complex operations or multiple sites.

Storage and Archiving

In addition to superior recording availability, Audiolog provides storage options that include Blu-Ray media, redundant hard drives, automatic archiving to DVD-RAM or to the Audiolog "Virtual Media" format, as well as support for NAS, SAN, and EMC Centera. You can choose from serial, parallel, or selective DVD-RAM archiving modes. The wide array of storage options can enable your contact center to store recordings and related information for as long as you need them.

Reliability and Availability

Audiolog is built on an open architecture, uses standard PC components, the Microsoft Windows platform, and the Microsoft SQL database. This helps promote superior reliability, availability and interoperability-as well as cost-effective operation and superior performance. Spoken, emailed, and SNMP alarms are standard, alerting you to outages so you can take action quickly. Digital fingerprinting enables newly recorded calls to be signed digitally and validated later to detect tampering or alternations. Optional dial-out alarms can provide an even greater level of security for mission-critical recording.

Designed to be easy to deploy, use, and maintain, Audiolog supports full remote diagnostic access and remote service pack upgrade capabilities. It's also highly scalable, enabling you to add functionality and capacity as your contact center grows.
