Datatel partner with Moneris Solutions, Canada's largest payment processor, to deliver PCI compliant telephone payment solutions to call centers.

Datatel Inc., a leader in hosted Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solutions, announced today it has partnered with Moneris Solutions, Canada's largest payment processor, to deliver telephone-based secure payment solutions to businesses and organizations that accept electronic payments over the phone.

Datatel has integrated Moneris Solutions' services with its Hosted IVR Telephone Payment Gateway solution, providing organizations with a safe, convenient and affordable way to accept credit cards and other electronic payments over the phone, any time day or night. In addition, the joint solution is fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry's (PCI) stringent security standards.

"This partnership represents our continued commitment to deliver innovative, PCI compliant payment solutions to businesses across North America", said David Ades, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Moneris Solutions. "We're very pleased that, together with Datatel, we can offer call center operators a convenient, cost-effective payment processing solution that is fully PCI compliant."

"We are excited to be working with Moneris, one of North America's leading payment processors, to remove the barriers that have prevented organizations from cost-effectively implementing PCI compliant self-service payments by phone", said Barnard Crespi, CEO of Datatel.

Because Datatel's PCI Ready Telephone Payment Gateway is a hosted solution, implementation does not require special hardware or software licenses, or customized development. Furthermore, Datatel maintains the telecommunications hardware and infrastructure, reducing expenses and ensuring rapid and worry-free implementation.
