Call Center Solutions

Combat data security issues and become PCI compliant, without impacting customer experience


Trust Key IVR to help your organization take PCI-DSS compliant payments, reducing the risk of brand-damaging data breaches.

Customers are placing their trust in your organization with sensitive payment details everytime a payment is made over the phone. Data breaches and other malicious activity from rogue agents or cyber attacks can not only result in massive fines but irreparable damage to your brand in the marketplace, so it is important you have a robust payments solution in place.

Many organizations aim to become PCI-DSS compliant, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS or PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. This can be a challenge to implement across your entire office and network environment, but with a Call Center solution from Key IVR, the payment data never reaches your systems. With DTMF suppression on all calls you can drastically reduce the risk of data security, saving your organization valuable time and money without comprising customer experience.

Our platform is recognized by international payment gateways and PCI QSAs, delivered by trained, experienced industry professionals. We will work with you and your security specialists to implement a solution that meets your business requirements.


Key Benefits

PCI Compliant Call-Recording

For customers reading out sensitive card details on the phone, pause and resume call-recording isn’t enough to be PCI compliant. You still have to rely on your agents to stop the recording, important information from the customer might be missed, and even then your agents are exposed to the card details that could be used for malicious purposes.

Our Call Center solution removes the need to read out card numbers completely, customers securely enter information on their phone’s keypad, with DTMF tones suppressed so no sensitive details reach your system.

Agents can follow the progress of a Customer making payment via a Live Dashboard, without seeing the sensitive card details


Stay in Conversation with the Customer

Some solutions transfer the customer from the agent to an automated IVR so if there are any issues the agent is unable to assist. Our Call Center solution improves engagement and reduces abandoned calls by ensuring the agent stays in conversation with the customer throughout the process.

Supplier Agnostic

Key IVR’s mission is to deploy solutions that work with the customer’s needs, so we’re not tied to a particular telecoms supplier or Partner. We can focus on developing integrations that work best with your existing network and, where possible, without needing to change providers.

Twin Clamp Technology - Designed for FCA Regulation

By clamping the phone signal at the start and end of the network, the risk of data leakage across all phone networks is removed completely. Some solutions simply mask the numbers reaching your Call Center whilst our service strips out all sensitive information altogether, leaving the audio behind. This allows you to record the entire call and adhere to strict regulation.

Fully Hosted, No Hardware to Install

As a fully hosted solution there’s no need to install or maintain hardware on site – either in a server room or on the agent’s desk. This allows for unrivaled flexibility and a deployment to suit how your business operates, improving user adoption and reducing the impact on your customers’ experience.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a set of security standards for all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into play on 25th May 2018 and affects how you manage customer data. By becoming PCI-DSS compliant your organisation is on the right path to removing sensitive card data from your network and any malicious activity.
