GETI and IVR Technology Group (ITG) Partner to Add ACH Payment Processing to Pay-by-Phone Virtual Terminal
FT. WALTON BEACH, FL–(Marketwire – Nov 18, 2011) – Global eTelecom, Inc. (GETI), a premier electronic check processor and gift/loyalty card provider, announced today a new partnership with the IVR Technology Group, a provider of customized IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and SMS text messaging services, to further increase the functionality of ITG’s IVR Pay-by-Phone virtual terminal. As part of this partnership, GETI resellers and end user customers can turn any telephone into their own virtual ACH payment processing terminal by utilizing GETI’s transaction processing technology.
The IVR Pay-by-Phone gateway combines this ACH capability with credit card processing to offer a complete payment solution. A significant benefit to businesses using the Pay-by-Phone virtual terminal is the ability to certify PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance, because the system does not store credit card data over the VoIP network.
Users of the system are provided a dedicated dial in telephone number and met with a company specific greeting. Callers are then given customized instruction on how to complete their electronic payments. The call flows have been implemented in accordance with NACHA & GETI guidelines. There is no need for any additional hardware and/or software. ITG offers full support for a variety of system to system interfaces including integration with existing IVR systems and customer management software.
“This partnership with IVR Technology Group will substantially enhance payment processing options for GETI clients by integrating GETI solutions into the Pay-by-Phone virtual terminal,” said John Laurell, vice president of technical operations at GETI. “Partnering with ITG offers us the opportunity to provide our resellers and their end user customers with the ability to field customer service calls for payment processing 24 hours a day.”
