Click4Assistance Proud to Offer Live Chat Services That Comply with Stringent UK FSA Regulations
Firms in the financial sector struggling to find third party live chat software providers that meet guidelines set out by the governing body FSA are being encouraged to contact Essex-based Click4Assistance.
Click4Assistance has announced that it is one of the only live chat software providers in the UK to be able to offers its services to businesses governed by the Financial Services Authority (and its new regulatory authority, the Financial Conduct Authority [or FCA]).
The company’s practices comply with FCA guidelines stipulating that firms must put stringent controls in place to prevent data loss or theft by their employees or third-party suppliers
“This is something which sets us apart from many of our main competitors and is a feature of our live chat services that is hugely attractive to companies who are concerned about customer data protection and security,” says Gary Martin, founder and managing director at Click4Assistance.
Information Commissioner Richard Thomas outlines in this Data Security report from 2008 the importance of ensuring that access to electronic consumer data is either restricted or adequately managed by third party suppliers. This is a principle that Gary and the team wholeheartedly believe in and the engineers at Click4Assistance have worked hard to ensure that the data shared between their clients and their clients’ customers is not compromised, especially at server level.
“We believe that any firm using a third party live chat software supplier to manage a certain aspect of their business needs to have excellent data security methods in place. For this reason, all of the chats conducted via our software are fully 128 bit SSL encrypted and all data is hosted on our secure servers that are located in the UK’s largest data centre,” he explains.
