Phonon’s Cloud Telephony to ease broker woes caused by SEBI guidelines on call recording

The Securities and Exchange Board of India’s (SEBI) recent guideline has directed stock brokers to compulsorily keep record of orders placed by clients from 1 January 2018. The new rule requires that stock brokers have systems set up for recording and storing telephone conversations before said date.

Though the order is a welcome step in the direction of greater financial market transparency, it has understandably worried brokers, especially the smaller ones, about the cost of acquiring and maintaining expensive call-recording hardware and systems. However, SEBI seems firm about the order and brokers have a short window to comply.

There are many solutions in the market but as a broker how do you choose the right one that fits your budget and requirements?
