Whether your employees use their own mobiles for work or are issued corporate devices, we can offer a recording solution to fit your use case.

Choice of Archive

5 Ways to Record Mobile Voice & SMS for Regulatory Compliance


What you need to know

App-based recording solutions can be used to create a “dual persona”. By associating a separate “virtual” number to the app, to be used for work, business calls and texts can be recorded while keeping personal communications private.

Network-based mobile call recording uses primary networks, such as O2, EE and Vodafone in the UK. SIM-based mobile recording on the other hand uses MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators).

The use case for SIM-based recording solutions tends to be for when companies need to record employees based across multiple countries, where a single primary network carrier may not be able to provide local numbers in each country.

If you want to ensure staff do not use the phone’s native dialler to make unrecorded business calls, you can achieve this by installing a data-only SIM in the device.

Depending on the solution and your requirement, we can either deliver recordings to your existing corporate archive, keep them in the solution’s own cloud storage, or provide a monitoring and surveillance platform such as SOTERIA.

Not necessarily. In many countries, we can port your existing business numbers into our recording service, allowing you to keep using them for business and avoid changing business cards and email signatures etc. As your phones will still need an underlying SIM number, these can be sourced from your existing mobile carrier to replace the numbers that have been ported away.
