VO is fully customizable and designed to continuously improve the performance of your call center agents.

VO’s Lights Out module will completely secure your valuable customer information and sensitive data, helping you comply with standards such as PCI compliance and HIPAA compliance.


Single Transaction Security:
CSI believes that protection for all starts with protection for one

“Lights Out” functionality:
The application controls playback and review based on tight restrictions applied by users and profiles. However, playback is indeed a necessity and therefore users will have access to sensitive card holder data. To reduce this exposure, Virtual Observer engineers developed a “Lights Out” feature for recorded audio and media which detects the start and stop of a credit card transaction and mutes the audio as well as wiping out the screen images during the life of the credit card process.

“Lights Out” relies on your IT staff to use our API: The Virtual Observer Web Service API is used by client applications to send data to the Virtual Observer server via a web method post. This Service is a Microsoft .net Web Service running on the Virtual Observer Server and will receive XML posts via a web method from any client capable of sending such a request.

These features are designed not only for PCI Compliance and HIPAA compliance but also for true enterprise-caliber granular security

Big Time ROI…VO’s Lights Out enables you to:

  • Comply with PCI and HIPAA security and data standards
  • Protect your valuable customer information from unauthorized access

What Our Customers Are Saying...

“I looked at several other call recording vendors, many whom were much more expensive and included many extra features that seemed beyond what was really needed. CSI’s soft sell approach helped me make the decision. I appreciated the patience CSI exhibited. Part of the decision to choose Virtual Observer was also because it was easy to prove out the return on investment. Being so cost effective, the performance gains show a positive return within the first year.”
