Latest news and updates from Syntec
The image of dual tone multi frequency signalling (DTMF) has come in for a makeover recently in contact centres. The engine behind automated IVR menus for many years, it also now facilitates new 'keypad payment by phone' technology to help keep customers' card numbers safe when paying over the phone for goods and services.
In this blog post Syntec Director, Simon Beeching, discusses how DTMF technology has developed over the years and the ways in which it is now being used to enable secure card payment by phone. 
How Locus H20 Wireless removed PCI risk from its omni-channel contact centre in the USA
Syntec has been working with Locus H20 Wireless on a four week integration with TokenEx's cloud tokenisation and Syntec's CardEasy keypad payment by phone system. 

Carlos Moreno, Locus's Payment and Fraud Analyst says  "We chose Syntec because they had the solution that we needed to de-scope our live contact centre agent and IVR environment. Syntec was the only vendor that provided the flexibility to integrate with our home-grown systems because their system can be cloud-based, with no requirement to change any of our existing IT."
