Instant Message Recording

The Verba Recording System provides an integrated solution to record voice, video and instant messages on a single recording platform.

IM compliance for Cisco and Lync

The Verba solution currently supports the following IM technologies:

  • Cisco Jabber - in our Cisco solution, the Cisco Presence Server connects to the Verba Recording System, which plays the role of a Compliance Server in this scenario.
  • Microsoft Lync - in case of Microsoft Lync, the Verba Lync filter used in our Lync voice and video recording solution, also records instant message signalling and stores it in the same database where other recorded sessions are stored.

IM recording completes our collaboration recording portfolio.

Unified Voice and IM search experience

Our solution provides a unified search experience, where IM conversations are presented in the same view as your voice and video calls. This provides a great timeline view of complex conversations where the session starts with IM and is escalated into a call.

IM sessions are presented in the Verba Conversation Viewer, which shows the entire conversation. The solution stores the entire clear text / rich text or HTML formatted conversation for complete session recall.

The solution provides lightening fast full text search capabilities for instant messages, completely integrated with the traditional call search interface.

  • unified search - a single search experience for voice, video and IM conversations
