Semafone Introduces Intelligence+ to Empower Contact Centers with Actionable Payment Transaction Analytics

November 6, 2019 GMT

BOSTON & GUILDFORD, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2019--

Semafone ®, the leading provider of data security and multi-channel compliance solutions for call and contact centers, today announced Intelligence+, a brand-new, real-time data analytics offering, integrated into its award-winning and patented telephone payments solution – Cardprotect Voice+.

Intelligence+ ensures that Cardprotect Voice+ customers have access to meaningful real-time data from calls and payment transactions as they occur across the contact center. With advanced analytical capabilities beyond those of standard business intelligence tools, Intelligence+ can provide customers with valuable and deeper insights into their payments platform performance. Customers can elect to receive all their raw data from the Cardprotect Voice+ platform to define and run data reports over specific durations, from 24 hours, to 90 days and beyond, or any time period in between. This functionality enables customers to add the data to their own database management system (DBMS) and completely customize reports, with full flexibility to change the appearance and reporting periods.

“Today, data is the fuel that organizations need to be successful, and that is particularly true for the contact center,” said Gary E. Barnett, Chief Executive Officer, Semafone. “With Intelligence+, customers can see their contact center call activity on our Cardprotect Voice+ platform, and quickly turn that data into meaningful, actionable insights that improve call center performance, all while ensuring secure, compliant and seamless payment transactions.”

Intelligence+ is compliant with industry regulations such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), HITRUST standards, and the upcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Strict compliance with these industry regulations and standards ensures better protection of consumers’ personally identifiable information (PII), significantly reducing an organization’s risk of a brand-damaging data breach, while providing a frictionless agent and customer experience.

With Intelligence+, customers gain the following key benefits:

With actionable, real-time data, Intelligence+ can enable contact center managers, as well as sales and marketing campaign managers, to improve business success, provide a better working environment for agents, reduce agent turnover and increase customer satisfaction with a positive brand experience.
