Have you ever wanted to go back and listen to a meeting you had, just to prove your point? I do it all the time…that is go back and listen. I listen to meetings I've recorded so I don't have to take notes - my full attention is focused on the meeting and those present. Also, it has saved the company a fair share of money - some people will agree to a price, then change their minds later. With a recording, you can hold them to the first-agreed upon price.
Currently I am using our 800 Forwarding service to record phone calls, meetings, and also to dictate notes I need for later - like a handheld voice recorder, but with no restrictions.
It's always polite (and important) to let the other person know the call is being recorded.
Finally, before you work yourself into a frenzy about what someone said (or didn’t), listen to the recording first….you don't want to be wrong do you?
