San Francisco, CA, USA, May, 2020 -- Twilio (NYSE:TWLO), a cloud communications platform, announced that Twilio will power the communications for New York City’s contact tracing initiative. Through the city’s Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications (DoITT), the city is planning to deploy a cloud-based contact center on Twilio Flex and leverage Twilio SMS and Voice as key parts of the City’s COVID-19 tracing program.
As governments explore strategies to slow new COVID-19 cases and safely reopen economies, public health departments have identified contact tracing as a crucial step in the process. When implemented effectively, contact tracing can lessen the impact of COVID-19 on communities and economies by lowering mortality rates and allowing people to safely return to work. New York City recently announced a plan to hire thousands of contact tracers to support these efforts in the coming months.
"Throughout this pandemic, the ability for businesses and government agencies to quickly spin up and iterate ways to engage customers and constituents has never been more important," said George Hu, chief operating officer at Twilio. "New York City’s contact tracing solution makes it possible for the city to connect with and support residents with COVID-19 and keep their known contacts safe and informed. Twilio is proud to work with innovative leaders like New York City’s CIO, Jessica Tisch, as they invest in the health, safety and future of their constituents."?

A flexible way to take secure, PCI DSS compliant payments from home or remote locations. It’s quick to deploy needs no changes to processes or systems.
CallGuard Remote prevents agents from seeing, hearing or recording card details so, the agent, their screen, and any call recordings are removed from the scope of PCI DSS.
This simple approach means the customer effectively types their own payment information into the agent’s payment screen, but with the card details being shielded from the agent’s view. It’s simple, and highly effective.
