The newest technology in secure payments developed by Fusion Telecom Ltd; PayGuard® are pleased to announce being awarded for the second year in a row, awards for both 'Best Payment Technology’ and also 'Best Business Payments Solution'.
PayGuard® allows for any type of organisation to take simple, secure payments. Whether payments are by card, open banking or direct debit on any channel which can include online, over-the-phone, email or even by web chat. PayGuard® keeps businesses secure and compliant to the highest achievable standards, protecting themselves and their valued customers.
It was important to the leadership team at PayGuard® to make sure that the bar was continually raised through the last unprecedented twelve months, offering payment solutions to business by building complete trust through offering the highest security for PCI DSS protection.
Recently it had been highlighted that a leading UK bank was unable to take payments due to their staff working remotely. Adam Norsworthy, Managing Director of PayGuard® wants this to be a thing of the past, commenting on a recent conversation, “a customer told us that a major high street bank had problems in taking payments during the Covid-19 Pandemic, the customer reported that they were unable to manually make a mortgage payment after a technical error in the bank’s systems missed the monthly withdrawal. Due to insufficient technology in place, they were unable to process the payment over the phone. With PayGuard® our award-winning technology has allowed companies to carry on working with the same protection and compliance even when remote working has been required.
During lockdown a lot of businesses have had to change their processes on how they take payments, PayGuard® offers easy to integrate technology with the highest level in PCI DSS compliance securing both the organisation and the customer’s sensitive information. For PayGuard® it is about giving companies multiple secure and compliant choices on how to take payments and handle sensitive financial information from customers, such as credit card details or bank account information. Winning these awards is a testament to the hard work and development of the PayGuard® team to our product.
The ambition of the Global 100 annual awards program is to recognise the achievements and expertise of firms and individuals operating to the highest standards across the globe. The annual awards program sets the benchmark for the most distinguished industry leaders, with highest calibre teams and exemplary organisations.
Although the beginning of 2021 has meant the United Kingdom has been in a lockdown, Adam Norsworthy sees that businesses have adapted and recognised the need for change. The introduction of how technology can help and protect their business no matter what capacity they have to work under has highlighted the importance of PayGuard®’s technology and led to winning for the second year in a row.
