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.”

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
