It reliably records 100% of calls — even across multiple sites — and makes it easy to search and access recordings regardless of location. Through voice recording, customer service operations can analyze the quality of voice conversations, identify training needs and help to continuously improve the performance of employees. The payoff is a better customer experience.

Use Case Definition

Business Flow

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

  • The customer calls a service number, and the call is recorded
  • 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

  1. Customer calls one of the service lines of the company.
  2. An announcement is played to the customer that the call is going to be recorded.
  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 "CE01 - Connect a voice interaction to right resource" or "CE02 - Personalized & Value Based Voice Routing". The Inbound Voice routing strategy is not within the scope of this use case.
  4. Genesys Interaction Recorder starts the recording.
  5. Agent answers the call from any desk within the site.
    • The agent may (if enabled) pause/resume the recording manually via the standard configuration with Genesys CIC Client when sensitive data needs to be entered.
  6. Customer or Agent disconnects the call.
  7. Genesys Interaction Recorder stops and stores the recording.
  8. Supervisor searches for, retrieves and listens to a recording made by one of their agents.
  9. Legal and Compliance officer checks the system for compliance and retrieves recordings for legal purposes.
  10. Genesys Interaction Recorder archives and purges recordings according to the rules defined in the system.

Business and Distribution Logic

Business Logic

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


Metadata are attributes that can be added to the recording to allow precisely targeted interaction search and selection for evaluation and analysis. The available attributes depend on the distribution logic implemented in your environment and are defined with you during the implementation project.

Retention 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 retention policies are configured during the implementation of this use case. This use case includes implementation of one set of rules which are valid for all recorded calls. Archived files are not managed by GIR. It is the customer's responsibility to set up a lifecycle policy for these archives and to purge them after the lifecycle period.

User Access

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

Pause / Resume recording

The ability for an agent to pause/resume a recording from the client application can be enabled or disabled based on customer requirements.

Distribution Logic


User Interface & Reporting

Agent UI

The agent has the optional capability in the client app to pause/resume a recording when confidential information is passed via the call.


Real-time Reporting

The supervisor has the ability to monitor active calls which are being recorded.

Historical Reporting

As a compliance use-case, it is not relevant how many calls per service/business line/customer segment are recorded. The assumption is that 100% of calls are recorded.In addition to the historical reporting, Genesys Interaction Recorder provides audit logs for recording access. These audit logs contain the following information:

  • Who accessed a recording
  • Which recording
  • When
  • Deletions
  • Playback requests
  • Exports
  • Interaction Type
  • Wrap-up Code
  • All attached attributes, when archived
  • Archive logs
