Recording calls
It is quite common for companies and agencies to record specific categories of calls. This is important if you want to check any arrangements made or for safety reasons.

A Call Recorder on your desk is the best solution as all calls are immediately at hand. Users of the Call Recorder say they could never do without one again. Call Recorders are often found at receptions or the telephonistís desk enabling management to evaluate the call in the case of an incident.

Because a CD can be played on any PC, the CDs of the FeaturePhone 175 can be used by everyone. Also from a cost perspective CDs win hands down from any other storage medium as it is possible to store 175 hours of recordings for the cost of a single CD recordable.
