Lincoln(26 May 2020)

Hösbach, May 26, 2020 – Today, ASC is proud to announce that ASC Recording Insights has reached production level and is now generally available worldwide. ASC Recording Insights is a native app integrated in Microsoft Teams that allows customers to record and archive one-to-one PSTN-to-Teams calls and Microsoft Calling Plan calls as well as online meetings, video and chat to fully meet compliance requirements. Using Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, the solution automatically transcribes all recorded communication, translates them into multiple languages and analyzes the results to find key metadata and identify compliance risks.

ASC, with its native app ASC Recording Insights, is one of the first vendors to take part in the Microsoft Teams Compliance Recording certification program. The program is designed to offer Microsoft customers confidence that participating solutions not only meet all market requirements but also provide a high-quality experience and compatibility when used with Microsoft Teams.

“ASC Recording Insights not only captures and stores all communication via Microsoft Teams in accordance with existing laws but also supports a proactive compliance management” says Dr. Gerald Kromer, Chief Executive Officer at ASC Technologies AG. “By integrating Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services in its solution, ASC helps its clients meet their compliance responsibilities and manage business risks.”

Mike Ammerlaan, Director of Microsoft 365 Ecosystem Marketing at Microsoft said, “Whether working on-site or remotely, companies in regulated industries are required to maintain certain protocols. With ASC Recording Insights for Microsoft Teams, those companies can do just that. The native app offers the possibility to record communication in compliance with the respective legal requirements within Teams, while also being able to archive and analyze them.”
