The Core Features & Benefits of HostcommRVX

Increase staff productivity through Automation.

Automation features reduce wasted session and post-session time which hugely improves the host's productivity, their ability to multi-task and handle increases in workload. RVX automation shortens the learning curve for new staff and eradicates errors and confusion.

Local-to-you Data Security

Hostcomm RVX data processing aligns closely with Amazon AWS such that storage zones are created which are local to you, such as UK GDPR compliance. This means that personal data can be moved and stored within your country without breaching your local data protection rules. Furthermore data is encrypted in transit and at rest and you are able to bring your own storage with AWS or Azure. Session media is encrypted and flows directly between the participating browsers which simplifies the system and means it is very secure. Hostcomm is a Level 1 PCI DSS service provider and applies the same level of security to RVX as it does to its payment systems.
