CTI Group to Launch Call Recording Solution for the Financial Sector at Cisco Live Europe

Visitors to Cisco Live in London Will Be Able to View CTI Group's Award-Winning SmartRecord® Integrated Within the Speakerbus' i turret Global Trading System

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - CTI Group (Holdings) Inc. (OTCBB: CTIG), an international provider of enterprise communications management software and services, carrier class voice over internet protocol (VoIP) management applications, enterprise and carrier class call recording solutions and electronic invoice processing and management (EIM), today announced that it will be introducing its first call recording solution designed specifically for the financial sector at Cisco Live Europe (London, January 31 - February 3, 2011). This development follows the successful interoperability testing of its award-winning call recording application, SmartRecord®, now featured as part of the Speakerbus i turret global trading system. 

By integrating SmartRecord with the i turret, customers are provided with a comprehensive voice management solution designed for a broad range of applications including investment banking, hedge fund management, spread betting and energy and commodity trading. As financial oversight bodies across the globe strive to develop regulatory programs that address the rapidly evolving communications structures, a number of organizations will need to upgrade their existing call recording and management systems. This presents the ideal opportunity for resellers to speak to both new and existing customers in the financial sector about the benefits of deploying call recording.

SmartRecord offers Cisco resellers further benefits through its qualification for Cisco's Solution Incentive Program (SIP) which offers Cisco resellers increased profit margins and improved customer loyalty. Furthermore, CTI Group is committed to supporting its channel partners in opening up the financial services market. This is delivered through its global support and development infrastructure which is dedicated to delivering market leading, intuitive and compliant voice recording and telemanagement products, tailored specifically for the investment and retail banking sectors.

SmartRecord is a cost-effective call recording solution that empowers resellers and end-users alike with its simple, straightforward installation process and self-care upgrade tools. It has been engineered with the scalability to meet the specific needs of any organization, regardless of size, form or budget. It stands out from other call recording applications in a variety of ways, including:

  • Extensive multi-tenancy offers flexible administration to support unique divisional and department requirements
  • Allows for automatic and multiple call categorization tools to synchronize and simplify business processes to improve workflow
  • Dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) media clip generation -- by entering a simple soft key sequence at the beginning and end of relevant conversations, users can create media clips with automatic email distribution capabilities
  • Screen Recording, Call Handler Evaluation and Speech Mining and Analytic tools round out application features ideally suited for the regulated industries
  • VMware certification provides confidence that SmartRecord® meets the standards demanded by the world's leading virtualization platform
  • Compatible with mobile, PBX and VoIP telephony systems

CTI Group's Lee Essex commented: "CTI Group has always enjoyed dominance in the delivery of call management tools to the financial sector and the addition of call recording allows us to offer a holistic telemanagement solution. By partnering with Speakerbus, we are delivering a feature rich tool set that is second to none. By integrating Proteus Trader and SmartRecord, Telecoms, IT and Compliance Managers have the ability to measure, monitor, and pro-actively report on the voice traffic across their entire communications network. Our channel partners will also benefit from this enhanced product offering by speaking with our Cisco Account Team about our relationships and capabilities in the public, defense, financial and energy trading sectors."
