2018: Voicemail Retention to Become Mainstream?

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Retention & management of voicemails is an increasingly common conversation within even un-regulated organizations.  Ever since unified messaging made it possible to email a voicemail; managing voicemails has become a challenge.

When it comes to voicemail, we’ve seen a couple of key management issues:
  • IT wants to groom the mailbox disk usage by keeping mailbox size small and retention short.
  • Legal, HR, Safety and other stakeholders have regular needs to keep voicemails as documentation.
  • Voicemail systems don’t make it easy to find specific voicemails, and there is no access control.
  • Voicemails archived with email via unified messaging don’t always come back out of the archive as expected.
  • Unified messaging archiving overwrites metadata often needed during production.
  • Protecting privacy, trade secrets or other privileged information is not possible when sharing a raw voicemail file.
 Clearly, the unified messaging archive is not the answer.  In fact, these challenges are exactly the reasons we applied our unified messaging expertise to develop Message Vault.    
 
2018 looks to be a big year for the management of voicemail records.  An increasing array of regulations are now expecting and examining for voicemail records.  More are specifically addressing issues such as retention for up to 7 years, but swept off mobile devices within 14 days . (HIPPA & Method II, for example.)  
 
Voicemail retrieval efforts from unified messaging archives have surfaced the challenges noted above.  And this is not strictly a matter of regulatory compliance. Voicemails often need to be quickly located, redacted and then communicated to address Safety and HR issues.
 
Message Vault is already on the job helping organizations address these issues; but we never rest on our efforts.  Our latest release adds features such as File Shredding (DoD level) of records upon their retirement, expanded integration with Microsoft Active Directory for role management, and more.
