Utilities – PCI Compliant Contact Centre Payments for Natural Gas Supplier
This organisation is one of the UK’s largest suppliers of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). From its central contact centre, its team of almost 160 agents handle payments for both retail and wholesale LPG products. On average around 18-20 telephone-based payment transactions take place every hour. In 2019, the company embarked on a programme to refresh its payment security compliance, to integrate with its existing payment gateways and CRM solution, to provide a seamless payment process to its B2B and B2C customers.
The Compliance Challenge
Recognising that they needed to update their existing processes to ensure PCI compliance, they needed a solution that could be integrated with its existing payment gateway provider, PaySafe, but also with its Salesforce CRM solution and telephony provider, Vonage, to ensure the process was familiar to agents, for a seamless customer experience.
Vonage, as a partner of PCI Pal, recommended the organisation adopted PCI Pal’s Agent Assist solution, which could be integrated with its telephony and CRM platforms, as needed, to enable customer service staff to securely handle telephone-based card payments. In 2020, however, they switched to the payment service provider Stripe. The teams at Vonage and PCI Pal supported the integration of the new provider to ensure that the transaction process remained seamless and did not interrupt business processes.
