Today's businesses use a mix of different channels for communicating between employees and customers. With the transition to telecommuting and working from home for part of the workforce, it is no longer feasible to only use fixed lines for voice communications. As a result, most organisations are also using mobile devices, alongside VoIP lines and their computers to make calls. As a result, businesses that record all calls between their teams and customers must also consider adding mobile devices to the recording solution.
More than two-thirds of organisations are still not fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), despite it coming into effect nearly two years ago, and the threat of heavy fines for non-compliance.

Call recording is a crucial and relevant topic for businesses today. Organisations have to contend with regulatory compliance especially with more countries introducing strict rules. Besides, they have to consider the constantly changing mix of enterprise communications channels. It is no longer enough to record calls on one or two channels because business communication is spreading out over multiple channels.
Business communication has evolved considerably over the last few decades. Despite this, voice calls are still the most popular form of enterprise communication – but, how businesses use voice has changed dramatically. The rise of mobile phones has altered the landscape beyond recognition. Of course, many still retain and use bulky desk phones, but mobile has rapidly become the preferred device for many. In 2020, people expect to communicate – both internally and with customers – from anywhere in the world.
