Phone Recording Introduction

Large businesses and call centers make hundreds or thousands of calls a day – finding the exact record you are looking for can be a challenge. 3CX Recording Manager provides a web portal with a searchable database. It has a built-in query manager that makes it easy to build simple or complex queries. You can listen to the recording directly from the portal and save the recording to your computer or email it to anyone you choose. You can also delete your recordings directly from the portal, giving you complete control over your call recordings.
