Eckoh makes global secure payment available to contact centres via the NICE inContact CXexchange marketplace
Friday, 19 October 2018

Eckoh has joined the NICE inContact DEVone program helping contact centres be more secure

Eckoh’s Secure Payment solution – CallGuard – is unique to Eckoh and is covered by US and UK Patents. The solution addresses the continuing rise in Card Not Present (CNP) fraud which is expected to rise to $7 billion in the US by 2020.[1] As more than one third of CNP crime takes place in contact centers, it’s an issue which needs to be taken seriously. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was established to help combat this type of fraud and today businesses that take card payments over the phone – storing, processing and transmitting card details – need to comply.

The CallGuard product automatically replaces real card data with ‘placeholder data’ which flows through a contact center’s telephony and data networks. This means that the environment and agents are no longer exposed to customers’ sensitive payment or personal data. Because of this, CallGuard can completely de-scope a contact center from the PCI DSS audit as it prevents protected card data from entering the system in the first place. Put simply, if there’s no sensitive data there, it can’t be stolen.

NICE inContact CXone users will benefit from CallGuard because removing card data from the contact center environment provides them with a way to take customer card payments over the phone and reduce the risk of fraud from criminals or rogue agents. It also means that the contact center payments would comply with PCI DSS and could also contribute to GDPR compliance.

NICE inContact CXone empowers organizations to provide an exceptional customer experience by acting smarter and responding faster to ever-changing consumer expectations. To meet the needs of organizations of all sizes, CXone combines best-in-class Omnichannel Routing, Analytics, Workforce Optimization, Automation and Artificial Intelligence—all on an Open Cloud Foundation.

Kathleen Phillips, VP of Business Development and Channel Partnerships at Eckoh said “It’s a great step forward in our partnership program and we’re delighted to be working with NICE inContact to share our effective solution to processing contact center payments for users of NICE inContact CXone cloud customer experience platform.”

The NICE inContact DEVone program offers customers and partners broad tools and resources to enable them to create new applications on CXone, including extensive documentation and support, and access to an online developer community.?Companies interested in how each company works with CXone can visit CXexchange to learn more about the applications and read reviews.
