Use Case Definition

Business Flow

The following describes the main actors of the business flow below and their goals:

  • The customer makes the call
  • The supervisor needs to be able to listen to recordings
  • The agent needs to be able to pause/resume recordings
  • The Legal and Compliance officer needs to be able to access the system to audit and protect recordings

Business Flow Description Step 1: Customer makes a call to one of the service lines of the company.

Step 2: An announcement will be played to the customer that the call is going to be recorded.

Step 3: The call is handled and routed to an agent following the logic of the Inbound Voice distribution strategy which is implemented for the Service Line. This can be either the use case "Genesys Call Routing (CE01)" or "Genesys Personalized Routing (CE02)". The Inbound Voice routing strategy is not within the scope of this use case.

Step 4: Genesys Interaction Recording starts the recording.

Step 5: Agent answers the call from any desk within the site.

Step 5a: The agent may (if enabled) pause/resume the recording manually via the standard integration with Genesys Workspace when sensitive data needs to be entered.

Step 6: Customer or Agent disconnects the call.

Step 7: Genesys Interaction Recording stops and stores the recording.

Step 8: Supervisor searches for, retrieves and listens to a recording made by one of their agents.

Step 9: Legal and Compliance officer checks the system for compliance and retrieves recordings for legal purposes.

Step 10: Genesys Interaction Recording archives and purges recordings according to the rules defined in the system.

Business and Distribution Logic

Business Logic

Details of the business flow described in the previous chapter depend on how the system will be set up for your environment. This chapter describes the options which are available and how the initial set-up will be done for your environment by Genesys Professional Services within the scope of this Smart use case.


Metadata are tags which will be added to the recording and allow precisely targeted interaction search and selection for evaluation and analysis. What data are available depend on the distribution logic implemented in your environment and will be defined with you during the implementation project.

Archiving and Purging Criteria

Recordings can be archived and / or purged from the system after a specified time. After recordings have been purged, they are no longer available for supervisors or compliance officers via the Genesys user interface. The corresponding policies will be configured during the set-up of this use case. Within the scope of this use case, we will set up one set of rules which will be valid for all recorded calls. Archived files are not managed by GIR. It is customer's responsibility to set up lifecycle policy of these archives and purge them after the lifecycle period.

Access Control

Access control to recordings is managed by user roles and associated permissions as well as by the organizational hierarchy defined for the individual agents. The scope of this use case includes default set of roles that can be provided upon request.

Pause / Resume recording

The ability for an agent to pause / resume a recording from his agent desktop will be enabled or disabled based on customer requirements.

Distribution Logic


User Interface & Reporting

Agent UI

The agent will have the optional capability to pause/resume a recording when confidential information is passed via the call via his agent desktop.


Real-time Reporting


Historical Reporting

Historical reporting is provided by templates in the SpeechMiner UI (business interface), which is part of Genesys Interaction Recording.

As this is a compliance use-case, it is not relevant how many calls per service/business line/customer segment are recorded. Assumption is that 100% of calls are recorded.

In addition to the historical reporting, Genesys Interaction Recording provides audit logs for recording access. These audit logs contain the following information:

  • Who accessed a recording
  • Which recording
  • When
  • Deletions
  • Playback requests
  • Exports
  • Report exports
  • Customer ID
  • Interaction Type
  • Reason Code
  • All attached metadata
  • Archive and Purging logs
