AutoClerk Partners with Shift4 for Fast, Reliable, and Secure Payment Processing
Las Vegas, Nevada ? June 26, 2007 ? Shift4 Corporation, a leading developer of enterprise payment solutions, and AutoClerk, a privately held software development company that designs, installs, and supports property management systems (PMS), announced today an exclusive partnership. Together they offer a robust, user-friendly hotel management software system that processes credit card transactions quickly, accurately and securely.
“We are very excited to partner with Shift4 as they continue to deliver innovative solutions to the payment processing industry. As we implement the Shift4/AutoClerk integration in the field, I am very pleased to report that it improves both data security and system performance,” Gary Gibb, president of AutoClerk.
AutoClerk leverages Shift4?s DOLLARS ON THE NET web-based payment gateway to help hoteliers increase efficiency and data security while maximizing customer satisfaction. Invented by Shift4, Tokenization technology enables merchants to process incremental authorizations without requiring any storage of credit card data on the AutoClerk system. Tokenization removes the burden of storing and maintaining credit card data and assists hoteliers with Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. In the event of loss or a breach, Tokens are of no commercial value.
“AutoClerk and Shift4?s shared commitment to delivering cutting-edge technologies with quicker time to market solutions creates a win-win partnership from two customer-centric companies. AutoClerk?s ability to meet the needs of a wide variety of properties from small bed and breakfast operations to large, full-service hotels is fully realized with Shift4?s DOLLARS ON THE NET enterprise payment gateway,” stated Dave Oder, president and CEO of Shift4 Corporation.
AutoClerk began in 1981, when a computer programmer and a hotel clerk joined forces to create a property management system (PMS) designed to address the specific needs of small to medium-sized properties. Today’s AutoClerk is a regional PMS, no longer confined to the boundaries of the hotel, with interfaces to more than 100 third-party systems. Based in Lafayette, California, and still owned and operated by the founders, AutoClerk serves hotels across the country with additional sales representation in the Mid-West and New England.
