Callers to Assist are greeted with your branded welcome message before being guided through the payment process. The system can be configured to ask for either one or two forms of caller identification with standard options including Account No, Reference No, Invoice No and Date of Birth.

Assist is available with or without a Local Database. When enabled callers identification information will be validated before they are presented with the payment due/ account balance. When disabled the caller can enter any amount between a minimum & maximum value. You can update your local database via SFTP Feed or in real-time using the simple API.
