Xelion UK, a cloud telephony provider, can now provide integration with the Encoded Agent Assisted payment solution. Xelion users can integrate Encoded technology to securely take payments from their customers.
Encoded is Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant and ISO 9001 accredited. In operation at contact centres when the payment stage is reached, the customer service agent activates Encoded’s Agent Assisted solution. Customers are then prompted to use their touch-tone phone for entry of debit or credit card details. They stay connected to an agent who gets real-time on-screen feedback, but cannot see any sensitive card details. The agent can only confirm if payment was approved or declined by the customer’s card provider. This allows a personal service and assists with PCI DSS compliance.
For Xelion, Dave Reynolds, UK Managing Director stated, "Integration with the Encoded Agent Assisted payment solution provides increased functionality for our customers who need to take card payments in their contact centre operations. Xelion already offers wallboard operation supporting formulas with KPI information and call-recording as standard. Integration with Encoded secure payment solutions will allow our contact centre customers to reduce costs by automating the payment process, while also lowering the cost of compliance by removing cardholder data from the agent’s view."
Robert Crutchington, Managing Director of Encoded concluded, "At the core of every contact centre is efficient and effective technology which gives organisations and their employees the base to provide the exceptional experience their customers deserve. This new partnership with Xelion provides customers with the required technology, including a secure card payment solution which is fast to deploy and helps with PCI DSS and GDPR compliance."
