Voice Loggers and Accountability

Accountability & Legal Compliance in the Business Environment
Internal Controls & The Sarbanes-Oxley Act [also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002]
 
Phone Loggers : In the United States, a law was made to force chief executives of public companies to take responsibility by personally approving financial statements and other important company information. The goal of the law, known as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, was to get companies to become responsible and prohibit management from ignoring their obligations.  This law came about in 2002 after the scandals involving Enron and other businesses exposed mismanagement and poor record keeping practices.
 
Within the law is a requirement that makes CEOs and CFOs affirm that their business has the proper INTERNAL CONTROLS to help safeguard their company.
 
Enter phone loggers and Digital Voice Logger technology.  In the general makeup of Control Structures in businesses, the ability to record phone communications is evident so that everything said by company employees is now stored electronically.
 
Logging all incoming and outgoing communications is a large task, but it is a) necessary and b) helpful.
 
It is necessary in order to supervise and monitor employees, make sure they are operating in accordance with company rules and practices, and document their communications in the event that supporting evidence can be provided to vindicate the company in the event of an investigation.
 
It is helpful in that employees know that they have to think before they speak, that employers can measure employee performance, and that the overall efficiency and manner in which conversations take place can be analyzed and used to better the workflow of a company.
Like audio surveillance technology, Digital Voice Logger systems enable management to keep control of employees and account for their conversations.
