5 Reasons to Use Call Recording
Large enterprises have been recording their business phone calls for years, but the price of a typical call recording solution was out of reach of many small and medium-sized businesses. Cloud IP Phone Systems are leveling the playing field, making technologies like call recording accessible to everyone. Many providers use a pricing model that allows for adding call recording on a per-seat basis, further reducing the cost of entry.
So, considering the robust flexibility available that is now more attainable than ever, let’s explore 5 reasons why you should consider adding call recording to your configuration:
Many industries are required to record their business calls in order to comply with regulatory requirements, such as HIPPA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and others. If your business operates in one such industry, the importance of a dependable recording solution cannot be overstated.
By recording calls, your team no longer needs to rely solely on their notes, or worse their memory, of what was said on a phone call with a customer. A team member can simply play back the call to ensure that they have all of the details correct. This takes less time than calling the customer back, and promotes a more professional image as well. Some solutions even offer the ability to record calls made on mobile devices, which can be particularly important if your team makes calls outside of the office!
Just as professional sports players review game footage in order to improve, business professionals can listen to their calls in order to increase the effectiveness of their communications.
When you listen to yourself, it’s easy to identify speech patterns that could be improved, filler words to omit, and ways to better handle client questions or objections. Even basics like volume, enunciation and pace will impact the customer’s experience while speaking with you on a call.
Unfortunately things don’t always go as planned, and the occasional dispute with a customer or vendor is an unavoidable reality of doing business. When your business calls are recorded, you no longer have to rely on ‘he-said, she-said’ information – you can simply play back the conversation to determine exactly who said what.
In the event an issue escalates, having call recordings on file is priceless should a court case be involved. Oftentimes, the presence of a recording allows for a resolution to be reached before legal proceedings are required.
