AudioCodes SmartTAP 360° Live Tackles Financial Institution’s Compliance Challenges with DATAGROUP

In today’s stringent regulatory landscape, financial institutions must navigate complex compliance requirements while embracing technological advancements. Recently, AudioCodes sat down with Khan Tinmazlar and Jörg Kohnke, the driving forces behind Microsoft Cloud services at DATAGROUP, a leading German-based IT service provider and AudioCodes partner.

Within DATAGROUP’s impressive clientele is a major German financial institution, where adherence to rigorous regulatory requirements standards is paramount. Recognizing the essential role of technology in meeting these compliance demands, this financial institution began a transformative journey.

“Banks and financial institutions operate in a highly regulated environment,” notes Tinmazlar. “When our customer expressed dissatisfaction with their previous compliance recording vendor, we saw an opportunity to drive positive change.”

Recognizing the Need for Change

Indeed, the financial institution required a new direction, a shift from Cisco to Microsoft Teams, with the added functionality of Teams Phone, in the face of challenges posed by the pandemic. DATAGROUP rose to the occasion, with Khan Tinmazlar recommending AudioCodes’ SmartTAP 360° Live compliance recording solution as the foundation for their call recording infrastructure.

“The challenges were undeniable,” reflects Kohnke. “However, amid regulatory complexities, cost optimization and technological progress remained at the forefront of our customer’s connectivity plans.”

Embracing Transformation

With DATAGROUP’s expertise and AudioCodes’ support, the transition to SmartTAP 360° Live within the financial institution’s Microsoft Teams platform began. Seamless integration and meticulous design characterized the implementation phase. Kohnke explains, “One of the key requirements was Azure integration. Utilizing DATAGROUP’s Azure environment, we ensured a cloud-first strategy that aligned with our customer’s vision.”

The partnership between DATAGROUP and AudioCodes encompassed both pre-sales consultancy and
post-sales technical support, ensuring a smooth transition and successful integration.

“AudioCodes stable hardware and software solutions have proven instrumental in delivering reliable communication systems to our customers. Their easy-to-administer platform ensures seamless integration and simplifies management, empowering us to provide efficient and effective solutions tailored to our customers’ needs,” said Tinmazlar.
