Hampton Mortgage Servicing were looking to relocate to a new headquarters from their existing one, they reached out to Telefonix Voice & Data with two main requirements:
One, they needed a telephony system that would be reliable and flexible to allow for rapid expansion and two, they needed to be compliant with the Financial Conduct Authority’s new regulation. This requires telephony infrastructure to record and retain all telephone conversations and electronic communications for a six month period. Hampton Mortgage Servicing current infrastructure was a VoIP system which was not FCA complaint so Telefonix Voice & Data advised them on the best route forward.
“Cloud Hosted VoIP was flexible and allowed us to grow easily, but just wasn’t FCA compliant. So we looked for an alternative that was as flexible as cloud VoIP in terms of ramping up the business, but which was also FCA compliant.“ Paul Morris, Managing Director.
Telefonix recommended that Hampton Mortgage Servicing move to an on-premise Avaya IP Office solution with growth in mind, allowing them to add and remove handsets as their business grew. SIP trunks would allow for a more reliable and stable line and by adding the FCA-complaint Oak Call Recorder with reporting software, Telefonix Voice & Data were able to tailor the solution to fit all of Hampton Mortgage Servicing’s requirements. The deployment of the system also included IP handsets on PoE data switches to facilitate the growth of the business in a flexible and cost-effective manner, allowing for new handsets to easily be added to the telephony system.
