PCI-PAL PLC, the customer engagement specialist focussed on secure payment solutions, announces a new major reseller contract with a multi-award winning, UK head-quartered, global leader in the cloud-enabled contact centre space with operations in the UK, US, and Australia.
PCI-PAL won this contract through a competitive tender against its major competitors. The reseller will integrate with the Amazon Web Services ("AWS") platform, as it is rolled out across the world, in order to provide its clients with live agent and interactive voice response ("IVR") secure payment services, supported by PCI-PAL's operational teams.
Commenting on the latest international contract award, William Catchpole, Chief Executive Officer of PCI-PAL, said:
"It is notable that this client is being supported across multiple locations via our AWS platform. This technology gives us compliance with country-specific data sovereignty rules with ready integration into any telephony and payment system across a wide range of locations.
"This degree of service and roll-out flexibility is now expected by our clients and acts as a considerable competitive advantage for PCI-PAL in its target markets."
