PRESS RELEASE: NICE announced the release of the latest edition of its recording solution for Skype for Business, which brings the trusted capabilities of NICE recording solutions and unique financial services compliance features to Microsoft’s latest unified communications platform. NICE recording solutions are deployed across most of the banks around the globe and the latest Skype for Business solution seamlessly interfaces to those already trusted solutions.
Skype for Business, which succeeds Microsoft Lync 2013, cost-effectively enhances the familiar Skype experience with advanced capabilities for an enterprise environment, including the security, compliance, and management of Lync. Expanding upon a six-year history of recording support for Lync, NICE has adapted its recording solution to meet the evolving needs of financial services sector customers as they transition to Skype for Business.
Financial institutions are facing more stringent regulatory compliance demands for proactive and precise recording, retention and retrieval of customer interactions. In order to meet the unique needs of financial sector customers, the newest release of the NICE Skype for Business recording solution supports dynamic selective recording based on the compliance policies of the bank, ensuring a lower total cost of ownership than traditional blanket recording methods. It incorporates secure, automated capture and retention, instant retrieval, advanced search, and monitoring for all voice interactions that customers of NICE have come to depend on over the last three decades.
NICE’s Skype for Business recording solution is an integral part of NICE’s industry-leading communications surveillance solution for identifying compliance and fraud risks across multiple communication channels. This includes peer-to-peer voice sessions, conference calls, email, chat, the audio of Skype video calls, mobile communications, and more.
In this latest version of Skype for Business recording from NICE, Skype calls are routed via a NICE Media Proxy, meaning that financial institutions can fully benefit from their previous investments in NICE’s recording solutions even as the communications platform changes. This integration significantly lowers the total cost of ownership and provides peace of mind for organizations that have grown to depend on the reliability of NICE solutions.
Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE “Our new feature for recording Skype for Business audio interactions is a natural extension of NICE’s current leadership in financial market recording. More broadly, we expect Skype for Business to disrupt the enterprise-based unified communications market across the board in coming years. NICE is ensuring that customers using our recording solutions in their trading floor environments and elsewhere in their enterprise can fully benefit from Skype for Business.”
