Baseplan ensures compliant comms on Microsoft Teams

Baseplan Ltd is a wealth management and advisory firm based in Dublin, Ireland. 

They have a number of agents who provide financial and retirement planning advice to clients. Gordon Mellon, Baseplan’s Managing Director, said, “we needed a compliant and simple solution to record our client-facing interactions on Microsoft Teams.”

Compliance with the Central Bank of Ireland’s recording regulations, including MiFID, was central to Baseplan’s decision to deploy Dubber to their senior management and staff.

Dubber’s flexible recording and retention options, as well as its full certification as a Microsoft Teams recording solution, provided the firm's owners with peace of mind that their staff are communicating compliantly with clients.

Gordon Mellon went on to say, “Dubber ticked all the boxes that we needed - compliance, simplicity and efficiency. It’s been a great investment.”

Furthermore, Dubber’s cloud-native recording has enabled Baseplan to avoid outlying significant capex costs toward an on-premise recorder, storage and ongoing maintenance. Deployment was rapid, enabling the firm to avoid any downtime as well. 

By placing a forward from the client’s mobile number to their Teams DDI, inbound calls are also recorded and across mobile devices.

Dubber’s ability to provide an automatic transcription of every phone call was another deciding factor for Baseplan.

Previously, the transcription and storage of every client conversation had been a manual process that took anywhere between 10-15 hours per week. The removal of this was a quick assurance of Dubber’s ROI upon deployment.

  • Baseplan’s existing recording solution was difficult and costly to use and maintain

  • Senior management weren’t confident that client conversations were compliantly captured

    • Secure capture and storage of every client conversation for compliance with the regulator

  • Cost savings

“We needed peace of mind that our client-facing staff were communicating compliantly. Dubber has given us the confidence and visibility of that”.
