How to enhance your Unified Communications ROI

Written by Martin Borowski, Posted in Unified Communications

One of the best ways to enhance your ROI is invest in Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C).  UC&C allows for existing technologies to easily merge with new technologies to connect people and companies at amazing volumes and speed. Companies are under constant pressure to perform often with little to non-existent budgets. With UC&C deployment, companies can implement effective collaboration to create a competitive advantage and align IT staff across the organization – thereby enhancing ROI. There are several ways to implement UC&C therefore it’s important for companies to align it with their business model. For consideration are questions like whether to purchase an entire UC&C solution or deploy a fully hosted service. Also, hybrid models are now very popular where companies can have both options merge which may suit their needs best.

Is your hosted contact center PCI compliant?

Written by Vivian Pow, Posted in Contact Center, Unified Communications, ComputerTalk, Technology

ComputerTalk is committed to safeguarding customer information with its Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) compliant UC Contact Center cloud, offering unparalleled security for credit card information processing.

Customers purchasing products and services over the phone or online trust the payment system to keep their account information safe. When you are using PCI-DSS compliant systems, you ensure that their information is safely processed, stored, and transmitted.

PCI-DSS compliant vendors follow industry standards developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, which serve to protect customers from identity theft. PCI-DSS compliant solutions decrease the legal, monetary, and reputation risks your business faces when handling transactions over the phone or online, storing account information, and transmitting information for credit card processing.

Contact centers are particularly vulnerable when it comes to meeting payment card industry data security and compliance requirements. When you use ComputerTalk’s UC Contact Center cloud, you are ensuring that your contact center is processing, storing, and transmitting credit card information in a secure environment.
