How to Record Mobile Phone Calls

Many organisations, particularly those in the financial services industry, routinely record calls between their staff and customers. With mobiles increasingly being used across the business community, it’s important to ensure that these can be included within any call recording programme. In this post, we’ll explore the optimum way in which businesses can record mobile phone calls.

Why businesses record calls

Organisations record calls for several reasons. For many, the most important reason is to meet regulatory requirement. In today's digital world, consumers are concerned with the privacy and security of their data. Many countries have responded to those concerns with legislation directing businesses to record and store calls.

The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) is a prominent example of such legislation. Businesses in Singapore must follow these rules. Similarly, the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) covers almost every financial services professional in the EU – and companies that do business in the EU, even if they are not located there. The regulation specifies rules for recording calls as well as storage and accessibility of the recordings.

Apart from regulations, several businesses record calls for quality assurance purposes. Recording calls allows managers to monitor employees when they resolve customer queries or close sales deals. Recorded calls can also be used for onboarding and training new employees. It is easy for trainers to show how experienced agents solve customer problems with a recorded call.

Some organisations use call recording to improve their product or service. Analysing recorded calls may give valuable insight into potential problems or new avenues to exploit. Finally, call recording provides a clear audit trail and record of customer interactions, which is handy for ensuring dispute resolution.  

Mobile Call Recording

If recording calls is important to a business, mobile call recording is perhaps even more so. Mobility and remote working are a part of working life in most organisations today. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets make remote working possible for workers.

It means companies should have a system that records calls on mobile devices, not just fixed lines or VoIP phones. If a business relies on call recording for collecting and analysing data, they cannot afford to miss mobile calls. A business loses the opportunity to record important conversations if users switch between mobile and fixed-line phones. Few companies want to deal with separate solutions for each type of communications, so a system that can record every single call is necessary.
