Speakerbus and VPI Strengthen Partnership With Successful Interoperability Certification of VPI EMPOWER Call Recording With Speakerbus' iTurret

CAMARILLO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2014) - Speakerbus (, a leading supplier of voice collaboration solutions for the financial and command and control markets, and VPI (Voice Print International,, a global leader in compliance recording and workforce optimization software solutions today announced that they have advanced their strategic partnership. Leveraging decades of experience and expertise, the two companies have united their first-class technologies to provide the industry with an advanced, integrated solution.

The combined technology securely integrates communication processes and recording -- enhanced by the capture of expanded telephony data for improved searches and reports -- to help trading floors more effectively comply with regulations, resolve disputes and manage quality. The integration between VPI EMPOWER call recorder and Speakerbus' iTurret dealerboard has been tested and certified by Speakerbus' Technology Partner Program technical team and officially accepted as certified for use with Speakerbus' iTurret.

The iTurret dealerboad delivers a rich array of mission critical voice capabilities, is scalable, compliant and interoperates with a variety of unified communications technology applications.

During active call recording interaction, iTurrets pass audio to VPI EMPOWER in a live stream. iTurrets can be configured for a single-stream or dual audio forking for redundant recording. Speakerbus' call detail service sends recording start and stop events and passes data to VPI database. Rendezvous between the data from the call detail service and audio from iTurrets is automated in the VPI EMPOWER database.

"Our customers will benefit from integrated access to VPI voice and screen recordings and quality assurance tools, since regulations mandate trading floors have technology that is highly reliable and can deliver on the compliance requirements for recording, storage and redundancy," said Nicole D'Antuono, Director of Sales - Americas at Speakerbus.

"Both Speakerbus and VPI serve some of the most demanding organisations in the world -- trading floors on Wall Street and beyond. Our successful interoperability certification of the latest platforms underlines both organisations' commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our customers," said Hal Wendel, EVP of Sales and Marketing at VPI.
