Gatwick, UK, Aug 9, 2022 -- Encoded, a Payment Service Provider and provider of secure payment solutions for contact centres and e-commerce, has announced that The Wine Society has successfully implemented its Gateway Services, Agent Assisted and E-Commerce Payments technology to meet increased demand as orders soared during the pandemic. Using Encoded, The Society’s contact centre has improved the security of telephone payments and enhanced the customer experience for members.
The selection of Encoded in the early part of 2020 was part of an ongoing modernisation programme at The Wine Society to introduce more secure, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS),compliant payment processes and advanced e-Commerce capabilities, including a new website. The success of the programme was vital to meet the increased demand of a rapidly growing member base as restaurants and bars closed and more people were ordering on-line for home delivery.
As a member-owned co-operative, and therefore particularly mindful of the need to be as cost-effective as possible, The Wine Society was looking for a vendor that offered blue-chip functionality and good customer service at a competitive price. Sustainability was also a prerequisite with the preferred solution needing to support future projects such as the new website. After evaluating the market place The Wine Society selected Encoded.
Karen Coates, Chief Operations Officer at The Wine Society commented, "Encoded won hands down when it came to good customer service. We really liked the team and the fact they had done their homework. We were confident they could offer us an immediate service and be a provider that actually cared about our members. They demonstrated high levels of flexibility, even suggesting additional creative ways to use Encoded technology. From the outset, they were exploring new ideas to help us work even smarter and this relationship aspect came across strongly. Since then, the team at Encoded have delivered on their promise. They are always extremely helpful, very responsive, attentive, thorough and professional."
The Wine Society initially implemented Encoded to support the organisation’s contact centre. Encoded’s Gateway and Agent Assisted Payments give agents one simple-to-use interface to process members’ card payments quickly and securely over any channel.
Rob Crutchington, Managing Director of Encoded said, "Not-for-profit organisations like The Wine Society can trust us to deliver totally integrated, robust technology that keeps their entire payment environment safe, is flexible enough to futureproof their operations and gives excellent value for money. They can also rely on us to be with them every step of the way. We offer a partnership approach that focuses on finding creative ways to tackle the unique operational challenges of a rapidly changing and often unpredictable business climate."

Making Training and Development Part of Your Corporate Landscape
Organizations are always on the look out to save money and make more profit. Usually when it comes to crunch time some leaders will scrap training in order to tighten the belt. The downside of this is the cycle it creates.
Because some employers see training as a flexible benefit, employee development is often taken off the table. When employees don’t feel valued it becomes easy to see a revolving door. The constant need to hire goes up which ultimately means costs go up; we know that hiring costs more than retaining the right people.
