Credit Card &

e-Check Payment Gateways

Supporting The First Steps Toward Your Utility Becoming PCI Complaint      

SEDC helps establish the procedures to protect your business and your customers from theft, fraud, and other security risks that result from the compromise of credit card data.  

Becoming Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliant is a major step toward comprehensive cybersecurity and improving the cyber resilience of your utility.

The requirements for compliance are much more than a simple checklist; they are a rule book for examining your network and infrastructure for possible vulnerabilities and then plugging those holes. We are committed to assisting you with the PCI DSS compliance process.

SEDC provides your utility secure and convenient ways to accept credit card and e-check payments – from our browser-based PCI-DSS Bill Presentment and Payment application to our Remote Payment Service terminals, SEDC’s Cash Register, and our IVR and Inquiry/Search interfaces.

By offering convenient and alternative payment options, your utility can generate a consistent revenue stream through timely bill payments, while continuing to offer cost-effective services.
