Datatel's New SMS Mobile Receipts Increases the Convenience of IVR Payments For Callers

Datatel Communications Inc. launches its new SMS Mobile Receipts feature which instantly delivers payment confirmations right to the payee's mobile device when making IVR payments.

Datatel Communications Inc./Datatel Inc. in Canada, a leader in PCI compliant IVR Credit Card Payments on the Cloud recently launched its new SMS Mobile Receipts feature –  enhancing the overall customer experience and efficiency through the instant delivery of payment confirmations right to the payee’s mobile device.

Datatel’s leading IVR Credit Card Payment platform provides hundreds of businesses, government and non-for-profit organizations with a safe, fast, convenient and affordable way to accept credit cards and other electronic payments over the phone, 24/7. The Mobile Receipts will add to the existing IVR payment platform by offering callers an instant confirmation of payments, resulting in higher levels of customer satisfaction and reduced calls to the client’s customer service team.

"We are committed to continue to add features to our IVR payment platform that will enhance caller experiences for our clients. The addition of mobile SMS receipts closes the communication loop when making telephone payments, thus increasing caller satisfaction."

Barnard Crespi, Co-CEO

The Mobile Receipts process is quite simple. After a caller makes a payment over the client’s IVR payment line, they are encouraged to write down the initial verbal payment confirmation. With the new feature, callers are able to opt in to receive a payment confirmation via an SMS delivered instantly.

The SMS contains key information relating to the payment such as the client’s company name, amount paid, invoice number, confirmation ID, and telephone number of the client’s customer service team.
