LONDON: PCI-PAL plc, the global provider of secure payment solutions, has announced the launch of a rapid deployment version of its payment services.
PCI Pal Rapid Remote was developed specifically to solve the business continuity challenges many organisations now face due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rapid Remote delivers secure and compliant payment services from PCI-PAL’s globally available cloud environment within 48 hours of ordering, thereby rapidly enabling organisations to continue handling customer payments in a secure and compliant way, even when employees are working remotely or from home.
Rapid Remote provides a solution for businesses with home-based workers who do not have access to secure payment solutions either through their existing remote telephony connectivity (including traditional PBX, and VoIP platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business), or where using mobile phones or landline telephones.
Commenting on the launch, James Barham, Chief Executive Officer of PCI Pal, said: “Even in this time of uncertainty, cybercriminals continue to perpetrate crimes in new and opportunistic ways. With our Rapid Remote deployment solution, organisations can move at a pace not previously seen in our space, to secure their customers’ sensitive payment information even while agents adjust to working remotely or from home.
“Rapid Remote complements what we are already doing with many of our Integrated Partners, a number of whom include global leaders in cloud telephony who are working closely with their customers worldwide to ensure their contact centre operations accommodate the changing working environments we are seeing today.”
PCI Pal is a specialist provider of secure payment solutions for contact centres and businesses taking Cardholder Not Present (CNP) payments. PCI Pal’s globally accessible cloud platform empowers organisations to take payments securely without bringing their working practices into the scope of PCI DSS and other relevant data security rules and regulations.
With the entire product portfolio served from PCI Pal’s cloud environment, integrations with existing telephony, payment, and desktop environments is simple and light-touch, ensuring no degradation of service while achieving security and compliance.
PCI Pal has offices in London, Ipswich (UK) and Charlotte NC (USA).
