News : Screwfix Secures Contact Centre Payments With Eckoh's CallGuard
Contact centre technology provider, Eckoh announces that it has won a new three year contract with Kingfisher IT Services to provide its card payment service, CallGuard, for its Screwfix contact centre.
Screwfix is a multi-channel supplier of trade tools work-wear, and plumbing and electrical essentials. Customer Service is top priority at Screwfix and the business is proud of their contact centre.
The agreement will see Eckoh supply Screwfix with its CallGuard payment solution which is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

CallGuard fulfils this need perfectly and enables us to take payments from customers over the phone in a PCI compliant way, without compromising the customer experience."
