Why OrecX?

OrecX customers control the platform:

  • UI is built on top of a REST API layer.
  • All or any part of the UI is accessible via API.

OrecX differentiates itself from proprietary audio capture/recording solutions in many ways, such as:

  • Customers have access to all system data without arbitrary limitations.
  • Customers have free/open access to their data – no ‘extraction’ fees.
  • Customers can run the platform with any third-party application.

In short, the advantages of adopting open source software to power infrastructure and application requirements, puts the customer firmly in charge of their future.
