Flannels Signs Deal With Callcredit

Fashion Retailer to Use Callcredit Verification Tool for Online Payments

LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2011) - Luxury fashion retailer Flannels has signed up to use Callcredit Information Group's CallValidate identity verification tool to help process online payments and increase customer acceptance rates.

Richard Blank Finance Director at Flannels said: "Customer service is extremely important to us so we're delighted to be using CallValidate to help us reduce fraudulent transactions and verify more customers' details, enabling transactions to be processed smoothly."

James Blake, Head of Sales at Callcredit said: "We're extremely pleased to be working with Flannels to help improve their customer acceptance rate. Getting the balance right between reducing fraud and allowing genuine customers to complete their purchase is very important, which can not only influence business results but also customer experience. We're pleased that Flannels recognise the important role CallValidate can play in helping to do just that."

James added "By utilising fast and efficient validation tools which provide the maximum protection through specific multi identification elements in real time retailers can ensure that are not exposed and become soft targets for the fraudsters".
