Audit Experts Join LiveVox to Discuss Practical Approaches to Preparing for the CFPB

LiveVox, the leading cloud contact center solution provider today announced a joint webinar with Resource Management Services, one of the financial service industry’s highest regarded accounts receivables consultants. As contact centers develop strategies to prepare for a tightening compliance environment, ongoing regulatory developments make determining the right approach an uncertain challenge. To shed light on effective best practices, LiveVox has teamed up with audit experts to discuss real-world scenarios that cover key exposure areas, as well as how to build a technologically intelligent compliance strategy.

According to Judy Hammond, President, Resource Management Services, “Businesses are racing to ensure their operations are compliant and for good reason. Changes are imminent and failure to adhere to these new regulations has very real and very severe financial consequences. And yet, despite best intentions we witness compliance shortcomings on a daily basis. Part of the problem is that the industry is simply still learning what it means to be compliant. In the countless audits we’ve performed during this time, we’ve witnessed the same common mistakes repeated over and over again. We are happy to participate in an opportunity to help our industry avoid these pitfalls before companies invest precious time and resources into their compliance efforts.”

Vulnerability is especially present at multi-site contact centers dependent on legacy architecture. Hardware-based technology creates unneeded complexity, where each individual application requires integration which is compounded for each location site. This complexity often leaves contact centers with disparate applications, hardware, and data sets – limiting their ability to exercise centralized control or oversight over all their operations.

Change management in these installations is usually costly and slow, not a good combination in uncertain economic and regulatory times.

John McNamara, LiveVox’s Chief Marketing Officer explains, “Technology can be the source of what handicaps or differentiates a business. Compliance is putting these models to the test with a rapidly approaching deadline. Call recording and manual phones are a prime example of this technological divergence. For the majority of hardware-based networks, most manual dials occur on a PBX that is separate from the dialer or system of record applications. As a result, the inability to capture, match and manage manual dials, call transfers, or inbound traffic remains a major pitfall that is often overlooked. It is imperative that business leaders recognize these chronic issues and address their cause in order to achieve optimal solutions.”

Hammond adds, ‘It has been the job of our organization to help educate and prepare members of our industry to not only adapt but to succeed. And while the market has no doubt changed, adaption does not have to be a difficult process. I am excited for the opportunity to share what we’ve seen on the ground in this upcoming webinar and look forward to taking our industry into the future.”

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
SYS-CON Media announced today that @WebRTCSummit Blog, the largest WebRTC resource in the world, has been launched. @WebRTCSummit Blog offers top articles, news stories, and blog posts from the world's well-known experts and guarantees better exposure for its authors than any other publication. @WebRTCSummit Blog can be bookmarked ▸ Here @WebRTCSummit conference site can be bookmarked ▸ Here
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
The Internet of Things can drive efficiency for airlines and airports. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect with GE, and Sudip Majumder, senior director of development at Oracle, discussed the technical details of the connected airline baggage and related social media solutions.

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...
