PCI compliance is something to shout about, but your customers' card details aren't!

Secured by Semafone

Your company depends on taking payments, however, without the right security protocols, you could put customers’ and your own sensitive data at risk. Data breaches, fraud, theft are becoming more advance, frequent and of substantial size. According to a 2018 Ponemon study, the average cost of a individual data breach is nearly £3 million, which includes missed business opportunities due to reputational damage. While PCI DSS intends to help you reduce thee risks, adding an extra layer of defence is vital in the survival of your business.

Fantastic Security

Even on call recordings, a customer’s card numbers are completely safe. The contact centre agent cannot hear or see their card numbers and call recordings do not capture either the long number on the front of the card or the three or four-figure security code. The agent’s computer screen only shows asterisks and the last four digits of the customer’s card number. Card numbers aren’t recorded or processed on the contact centre system anywhere either – this allows customers telephone keypad to have direct access to their bank via a payment service provider. Semafone is completely PCI DSS compliant for you and all of your colleagues.

For Your Customers

Semafone’s patented data capturing method utilises dual-tone multi-frequency masking, replacing key tones with flat pitch sounds as the customer inputs their data. If the caller is unwilling or unable to share their payment details using their telephone keypad, our automated speech recognition solution can also provide a suitable solution. The agent cannot decipher the numbers in any way shape or form and is able to stay on the line in full voice communication with the customer throughout the entire transaction.

For Your Agents

With Semafone, your staff no longer need to work in environments with stringent, draconian security measures, like the use of “clean rooms” where agents cannot have mobile phones, writing equipment, paper or even bags. These restrictions have a negative effect on employee morale and job satisfaction, leading to high staff turnover. Because agents do not have access to sensitive payment data, they can freely access tools, like webchat and social media, that improve the working environment and help to deliver superior customer service.
