TAAP, which helps organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors save money and improve service through the latest mobile technology has chosen SecureTrading, the UK’s leading independent payment processor, to enable its clients to take payments using mobile devices. The solutions are used by a range of customers including charities such as Shelter to allow credit and debit card payments to be made via smartphones.
TAAP (The Agile Application Platform) is a sophisticated workflow system, which provides mobile workforce solutions and applications to organisations operating ‘in the field’. Using mobile devices pre-loaded with TAAP software, clients can receive, collect and transfer rich data from a PDA, smartphone or tablet to a secure web portal or back-office system in seconds. The systems are also scalable and flexible, making it easy to adapt to the most demanding environments from charities involved in face-to-face to fundraising to automotive clients delivering replacement vehicles and parts.
As with any transaction, data integrity is paramount and the solution’s software doesn’t save any of the credit card details so the transaction is fully secure and PCI compliant.
Angela Walker, Marketing Manager at TAAP, says: “SecureTrading’s products meet our business requirements and by offering an alternative payment method to cash, our clients have the opportunity to generate more income through cards and also improve cash flow as invoices do not need to be chased.”
Tim Allitt, Head of Sales & Marketing at SecureTrading, says, “Providing our clients with the facility to take payments via smartphones and PDAs is part of our ongoing mobile payment strategy. Indeed, the importance of mobile payments will become increasingly clear over the coming months and SecureTrading’s focus is on ensuring our gateway is accessible via whatever technology online retailers, merchants and partners want to employ.”
