Taking Phone Payments

PayGuardTM provides you with a plethora of benefits if you need to take card payments over the phone. Compliance with PCI standards is a given, but PayGuardTM also provides greater levels of security by removing agents from the payment process.

Running a Contact Centre

Using PayGuardTM is a great way to reduce your agent handling times, s the automated payment process is faster than the manual approach. PayGuardTM also helps to keep costs low due to its automated processes.

Managing Inbound Contact

PayGuardTM personalises the experience of customers and gives them peace of mind that their data is secure. It also gives greater visibility over inbound contact with a dashboard that allows agents to see whether payments have been accepted within seconds.
