Act 1: Setting the Stage
In the world of events, there is no room for error when it comes to payments. As one of the UK’s largest event venues, ACC Liverpool had to make sure their payment processes were secure and compliant with PCI DSS standards. But ACC Liverpool wanted to do more than just meet compliance standards; they wanted to go beyond them.
Act 2: Overcoming the Challenge
However, they faced challenges due to sharing infrastructure with Liverpool Council, a local government body. This meant they had to consider multiple systems in their overall solution while following best practices to comply with security standards.
One of the challenges they faced was that they shared infrastructure with Liverpool Council, which meant they had to consider multiple systems in the final overall solution. The implementation process was mostly smooth sailing, but certain sites within Liverpool Council were understandably off-limits, presenting some significant technical challenges.
However, Eckoh’s technical delivery team were on hand to work alongside ACC Liverpool's IT department, calling on their vast amount of experience in dealing with complex infrastructures to resolve any issues swiftly, keeping the project firmly on track. Eckoh's project management process ensured that the ACC Liverpool team were always informed of the next steps, resulting in a proactive and efficient implementation.
Act 3: Impressive Results
Since the implementation of Eckoh's solution, ACC Liverpool have experienced impressive results. Advisors found the system easy to use and were quickly trained on it, eliminating the need for extensive training hours. Customers were reassured by the added security in the payments process. Any initial concerns that customers may struggle to use the new system were short-lived, as customer service agents are able to provide guidance through the agent console.

Maria and Liam from Eckoh went above and beyond, even traveling to ACC Liverpool to provide training and support for their customer service agents, making light work of getting the team up and running. ACC Liverpool felt cared for by the dedicated and proactive approach of Eckoh's team, which made the whole process easy and stress-free.
