Take secure payments from any location without changing your call handling procedures.

Remote Agent allows your agents to take secure payments from any location without having to change their usual call handling procedures until they need to take a payment.

When ready to take a payment the agent will use their own dedicated number to transfer the customer to our secure platform. Vitally though, the agent will then re-join the call to make sure the payment completes successfully.

The moment an agent transfers their customer, they forward the call to same number to re-connect themselves with the customer in the secure environment. This process only takes a matter of seconds with the customer will hearing a comfort message whilst they wait for the agent to re-join the call. Once the customer and agent are re-connected, the agent can process the card transaction using the virtual terminal (VT).After the payment is complete our platform notifies the agent via the portal and they can then wrap up the call as normal.
