Appletree Communications Ltd: Moving beyond PCI DSS compliance

Appletree Communications provides organisations with multi-layered front- and back-office support from its various support centres, including subscriber management systems, automated billing and payment processing systems, which evolved through supporting blue-chip broadcasters in the pay TV industry.

Appletree’s core services involve subscriber management, processing, storing and encrypting customer data, activating and deactivating services associated with their accounts, as well as billing and payment processing services.

Having grown its subscription volumes beyond the transaction level required for a PCI SAQ, the company was keen to progress to the highest level of PCI compliance as a service provider. Appletree also decided to use the opportunity to boost its credentials while extending the payment gateway and payment processing arm of the business.
