Talkument:The Leader inVoice DocumentationTalkument , the voice documentationsolution from OAISYS, does for phonecalls what the advent of e-mail did forletters and memos, providing similarbenefits to collaboration, productivityand accuracy.Talkument capturesdigital recordings, or voice documents,of authorized users’ phone-basedconversations using patent-pending OAISYS Portable VoiceDocument (PVD ) technology. Conversations are captured intheir entirety and can be easily and securely shared with otherauthorized users to facilitate improved collaboration.In the past, the practice of recording calls was predominantlyreserved for the contact center. In today’s world, every phonebased interaction across the enterprise has the potential toexert a positive or harmful effect on overall business success.Customer retention has become more important than ever, andthe demand for business transparency and accountability hasalso increased. Recording a call is simply part of the equation; aneffective means of reviewing, analyzing and disseminating theinformation contained within that call is the other component.Talkument is the solution.With Talkument, an individual’s voice conversations arecentrally documented through call recording and madeavailable to store, organize, playback, annotate and share withothers. Now, phone calls and the information they containbecome searchable, sharable content, similar to e-mail. Whena user shares a voice document, the recipient is notified andprovided a link to the document, rather than a copy of the fileitself (although users do have the option to convert PVD filesto .WAV or other formats should they desire). Users can inserttext annotations to further explain and clarify verbal content,or to respond to a specific question within the voice document.Promoting privacy and security, shared content can be set toexpire and sharing restrictions can also be included.Voice document management and accessibility is simple andefficient, owing to the instinctively familiar Microsoft Outlook style organizational folder structure. Static folders enable usersto manually organize call recordings as needed, while dynamicfolders make it possible to automatically organize recordingsbased on pre-defined criteria or conditions set for that folder.Additionally, the Talkument user interface is intuitively designedto help users quickly locate recordings by conducting a searchon a wide variety of specific file attributes or by simply locatingwithin a dynamic search folder.As a personal voice documentation and collaborationsolution, Talkument addresses the gap between real-timecommunications and knowledge sharing—an invaluableability in a new business world where the act of efficientlycommunicating knowledge has become equally important tothe process of creating it.Can’t remember if your customer needed that order to arriveon the 30th or the 31st? Simply review the voice document.Once verified, highlight the portion of the conversation wherethe customer conveyed the address and billing informationand share the document directly with your shipping managerto eliminate the risk of miscommunication and customerdissatisfaction.Need your manager’s guidance after a difficult conversationwith an upset customer? Rather than recreating the discussionfrom memory, which can result in a potentially troublesome“he said/she said” dispute situation, simply retrieve the voicedocument, highlight the related section, add your commentsand send directly to your manager for review.Require the support and expertise of your entire sales andfulfillment team to help resolve a customer service issue?Highlight the relevant portion of the voice document withTalkument, comment on the specific actions that need to betaken, share the call with the group and successfully work outa solution.Now, telephone conversations no longer disappear as theyoccur, leaving just a few lines of ink on a notepad to retainthe important details at completion. With Talkument, a voicedocument and the wealth of additional information it containsare readily available for future reference.www.oaisys.com3
