Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions and Bloomberg Deliver First Cloud-Based Voice Record Archiving Service
LONDON & NEW YORK & PARIS --(Business Wire)--
In order to help global customers manage their voice recording and
archiving, Orange Business Services (News - Alert) - Trading Solutions today announced
an integrated voice offering in partnership with Bloomberg Vault.
The collaboration integrates Bloomberg (News - Alert) Vault, Bloomberg's leading
cloud-based information management service for enterprise
communications, with voice services from Orange Business Services -
Trading Solutions to manage data stored by customer-site voice recording
systems. Under the partnership, Orange Business Services - Trading
Solutions, a leader in voice recording and electronic trading
infrastructure in more than 50 countries across 1,300 trading floors,
enables the integration of voice data into Bloomberg Vault to produce
electronic records in near real-time.
"This partnership will deliver a shrink-wrapped service to financial
institutions that solves major voice-recording headaches without
incurring huge costs," said Robert Powell, Global Head of Compliance at
Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions. "Bloomberg is the de facto
communications platform for traders. Combining this together with our
voice recording expertise presents a unique offering to the market."
Financial services firms need to meet expanded record-keeping and
analytics demands globally. Market participants face reporting and
record-keeping requirements for transactions, including pre- and
post-trade communications relating to a swap transaction such as calls,
emails, and instant messages. The increasing breadth and complexity of
record-keeping and record-delivery guidelines has created market demand
for a cost-effective cloud platform with analytics, search, policy
management, and archiving of all data formats - including voice data.
"There have been significant global changes to regulatory reporting
requirements for financial institutions in the past few years," said
Harald Collet, Global Business Manager, Bloomberg Vault. "Combining the
notable voice-recording expertise of Orange Business Services - Trading
Solutions' with Bloomberg Vault's leading information management
capabilities has enabled us to deliver a first-to-market archiving
service, which we expect will help clients meet regulatory requirements."
The integrated cloud service from Orange Business Services - Trading
Solutions and Bloomberg Vault will be available to regulated industries
that can leverage new or existing voice recording infrastructures.
Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions' voice capability will feed
Bloomberg Vault with data from phone calls stored in the voice recording
systems. Once Bloomberg Vault has archived this data, compliance
personnel will be able to execute a single search across all data
formats such as email, instant messages, Bloomberg messaging, mobile,
social media, proprietary messaging formats, and now voice records, to
produce a consolidated transaction-record mapped to counter-parties.
This integrated voice recording service is supported by Bloomberg and
Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions for clients globally.
