Unite: Hybrid Automation for Secure Phone based Card Payments
Our Unite payment solution allows your staff to take secure payments by incorporating our Automated payment solutions but without having to change your existing telephone network.
During a live call your agents can collect most of the payment details required from your customer, and then at the point the secure card details are required our secure platform takes over to process the payment with your Payment Service Provider
The system is easy for agents to use, and frees them up to process further calls whilst the previous customer is completing their purchase.

At the point of payment your agent creates a payment link on our portal
The agent can confirm to the customer how they will send the payment link
Agent sends the payment link to the customer
The customer follows the link and enters their payment card details
The secure platform processes the payment with your PSP
The agent is informed of the payment status and can relay this to the customer
We can send the payment details to your CRM, if required
You can continue to communicate with the customer as necessary
Once a payment has completed we can send the transaction record directly to your CRM, or if you prefer we can send you a nightly batch of transactions. We have various options available to suit your systems, including direct API integration and Secure File Transfer Protocols (SFTP).
In additional to the automated transaction reporting, and the reporting available from your Payment Service Provider (PSP), you can also use our online portal to view and download historic and up to the minute transactions.
You can search for, view all and drill down into each transaction processed, providing an invaluable resource for both finance and customer service teams.
What is VoIP and why do I need it for my business?Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, allows users to make calls via the internet rather than a traditional phone system. VoIP converts sounds into digital communication and then transfers it through the internet to the phone receiver. With the UK's ISDN network due to be switched off in 2025, it is the only future proof system for your business.
Are VoIP calls good quality?Yes, you’ll get the same level of clarity as you do with a regular landline (depending on the set-up of your system and the internet connection, call quality may even be better). Calls made over your internet connection take priority over data, so you can be sure that your call quality will be consistent.
What's the minimum internet speed for a Cloud VoIP solutionThe speed you need basically depends on a how many people will be on the phone at the same time and how much data your business uses. You might think you need fibre broadband, but this isn’t necessarily the case as a VoIP call only uses a fraction of your broadband's capacity.
Can I use my existing telephone numbers?Yes, for sure - we can move the telephone number to our platform, alternatively we can supply new numbers in any range including: 0800, 0330, 07, All UK Area Codes and International Freephone
