QORUS Release Highlights – Enterprise Release 5 – 2022
This article highlights the new features and updates that have been released to enhance the performance and capabilities of Speakerbus’ digital cloud collaboration platform QORUS.
These updates improve our solutions to better meet the demands of our financial clients and partners.
ARIA Hoot is a browser-based WebRTC client for users who want access to ARD, MRD and Hoot lines without the encumbrance of a full-sized trading turret. With up to 8 configurable speakers, ARIA Hoot enables anyone with access to a web browser to build a cost-effective global community of no waiting, always-on, active voice channels that can be re-sized to the corner of the screen when not the focus of attention.
ARIA Hoot runs on iCS, Speakerbus’ secure, scalable, high-availability collaboration software platform, which can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise and integrates seamlessly with leading voice recording solutions ensuring all conversations can be captured, archived and audited in accordance with regulatory and compliance requirements.
In addition to supporting Chrome and Edge on PC, there is also support for Chrome on Android devices.
Record On-Demand (ARIA Click / ARIA Touch / AYRE)
Gives the user the option to record their calls on demand. This user privilege is controlled by the system administrator.
Alert Profile Editing on individual keys (ARIA Click)
This feature allows user customisation for the way incoming calls are presented. The user can change ring tones, priority levels (which decide which line rings first when multiple calls are coming in simultaneously), ringing durations and delays, volume and style displayed on the user interface.
Personal Directory Editing (ARIA Click)
Gives users control over their personal directory. This lets the user create, edit and delete the contacts in the list. The user can define the label of the contact and give it multiple addresses.
Copy Call Log entry to Personal Directory (ARIA Click)
