Speakerbus is a specialist provider of voice collaboration solutions: telephony, intercom, connectivity and speaker solutions to the financial services industry over the last thirty years.

Sam Daroczy, Co-Founder at Verba Technologies feels, ”Our work with Speakerbus is of fundamental importance and is in line with our strategy to deliver the next generation trading room for the finance sector globally. With their latest product generation, Speakerbus is on the frontline of trading room solutions and together we can now provide a complete collaboration compliance story, that goes well beyond voice-only technologies. Working with Speakerbus has been a great, effortless experience for our entire team, due to Speakerbus’ uncompromising expertise and focus.”
What did the compliance tests entail?
Verba’s latest release 8.4 successfully completed compliance testing with the iSeries Speakers Application Program Interface (API). One of our Lead Developers, Peter Krasznai, prepared Verba for the strict interoperability testing requirements, which required complex fixes and modifications. The interoperability test plan consisted of more than 70 call scenarios, that covered all the special call flows Speakerbus iTurrets and Intercoms support. This included call conferencing, call privacy, hoot and holler, ARD/MRD calls, Group calls and calls with a 24 speaker channel. In addition, the test also focused on negative tests, i.e. how the recorder recovers from different error conditions like network failures.
What are the benefits?
The Verba recording solution integrates perfectly with the Speakerbus iTurret, iD712 and SE078 products to provide clients with a comprehensive Unified Communications solution. This integration provides financial institutions with a flexible solution, which helps them to manage risk and meet increasingly complex compliance requirements.
Charles Miscampbell, Product Manager at Speakerbus, feels the partnership is very beneficial, ”…having Verba as a partner extends our ability to enable clients meet their regulatory obligations, such as those stipulated by Dodd-Frank and MiFID. The range of plug-and-play products available through our partner Programme saves clients significant amounts of time and money, as we’ve already done the due diligence, testing and interoperability work. We moved quickly to add Verba to our partner list in response to our client requests.”
