Gateshead Council Contract for PCI Secure Telephone Payments Solution
Any such card payments must comply with Payment Card Industry (PCi) standards.
Gateshead Council (the Council) provides paid for services to the citizens of Gateshead. As a result, the Council has set up several payment channels for its customers. Some of these channels allow payment to be made by credit or debit cards. Any such card payments must comply with Payment Card Industry (PCi) standards. The Council has a dedicated PCi network for the card taking process and has moved its card taking application into a Cloud environment thereby reducing the scope of PCi requirements. However, payments taken over the phone remain an area of potential risk. The Council is therefore seeking a solution which will allow employees and Customer Service Agents to take customer not present (MOTO) payments over the phone whilst descoping remaining PCi requirements.
