SYNETIQ customers now benefit from an even more secure payment process, using Gala Technology’s SOTpay multi-award winning, cloud-based payment technology – making payments easier and more secure and fully PCI DSS compliant.
Their customers will benefit from further protection; the use of SOTpay means that card data is never handled by our employees, protecting our customer’s data and retailer reputation. The new system also means secure payments can be made through any channel, including SMS, email, social media and web link. There’s no longer any need for customers to give out card details over the phone.
The security and traceability of payments has always been high on SYNETIQs agenda. The business made headlines earlier this year when it announced a no cash payments for salvage; a policy that was lauded by Police forces across the UK. Embracing SOTpay is SYNETIQs next step to protect clients and customers against fraud.
Chief Superintendent Chris Todd of West Midlands Police welcomed SYNETIQ’s decision and urged other salvage auction houses to follow suit:
“SYNETIQ are setting a great example: they are listening to police concerns over the rise in stolen cars and are taking steps to make it more difficult for crime gangs to exploit the salvage vehicle industry.”
Richard Martin – Group Managing Director of SYNETIQ talks of the benefits in using SOTpay:
“I am delighted that SYNETIQ is leading the industry with regards to compliance and transparency. We have worked closely with our clients and the authorities and will continue to drive up standards and trust, in both our business and the industry. SYNETIQ customers now benefit from a more secure payment process, using the multi-award winning, cloud-based SOTpay technology – making payments easier, more secure and fully PCI DSS compliant.”
Jason Mace Group CEO at Gala Technology said:
“It’s great to see more businesses taking card data out of the working environment, even as a shopper I do not like reading my credit card details out over the phone to a faceless operator. There are many benefits to business and consumer when SOTpay is implemented.”
