Shift4 and InnQuest Software Introduce Joint EMV Solution for the Hotel and Lodging Industry
EMV Solution Is Available Today With Eight Processors in the U.S. and Canada
LAS VEGAS and TAMPA, Fla. — Dec. 20, 2016 — (PRWeb) —
Payment gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and InnQuest Software Corporation, developer of property management software, today announced the general availability of their joint EMV-certified solution for hoteliers.
The solution includes:
- Layered payment security: EMV helps prevent the fraudulent use of stolen card data in card-present environments. With Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET and InnQuest’s roomMaster solution, hotel operators can process EMV payments while adding the layered security of point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. This keeps sensitive cardholder data out of the hotelier’s payment processing environment, greatly reducing their breach profile and PCI scope — and protecting their guests’ payment data from hackers.
- Thirteen supported devices: Shift4 currently supports a variety of EMV-capable terminals by Ingenico Group and Verifone, with options for USB, serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. This allows hotel environments to easily implement EMV across their property using the device(s) of their choosing.
- Bank and processor neutrality: Shift4 is currently certified for EMV with eight major processors in the U.S. and Canada — with more on the way — delivering unparalleled coverage of acquirers in North America and the Caribbean. This makes it possible for hotel operators to adopt EMV without changing their financial relationships and gives them the freedom to negotiate the best payment processing rates or make a switch if needed.
Michael Assi, president, InnQuest Software, said:
“Since 1994, InnQuest Software has been providing hotel operators with the service, expertise and technology that allows them to run their business more efficiently and more profitably. Our joint EMV solution with Shift4 expands upon this mission to help hotel operators integrate EMV in a way that is simple, seamless and affordable.”
Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4, said:
“We are pleased to work with InnQuest Software to provide hoteliers with a solution that fits EMV into their current operations, rather than requiring them to adjust their infrastructure and business practices. In addition to the improved card verification that EMV brings to physical points of sale, this integration with InnQuest’s roomMaster includes Shift4’s tokenization and point-to-point encryption technologies, helping keep sensitive cardholder data out of the merchant’s payment processing environment.”
