Shift4 and Maestro PMS Announce Joint EMV Solution for Hotels and Resorts
EMV Solution Is Available Today With Eight Processors in the U.S. and Canada
LAS VEGAS and MARKHAM, ONTARIO — Oct. 25, 2016 — (PRWeb) —
Payment gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and Maestro PMS, an enterprise property management hotel software suite, today announced the general availability of their joint EMV-certified solution for hoteliers.
- Layered payment security: EMV helps prevent instances of card-present fraud at physical points of sale. With Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET and Maestro PMS, hoteliers 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 hotel environment, greatly reducing hoteliers’ breach profile and PCI scope and protecting their guests’ payment data from hackers.
- Twelve supported devices: Shift4 currently supports a dozen EMV-capable terminals by Ingenico Group and Verifone, with options for USB, serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. This allows complex hospitality environments to easily adopt EMV across their properties from the front desk to the spa and beyond.
- 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 — making it easy for merchants to adopt EMV without changing their financial relationships. This also gives merchants the freedom to negotiate the best payment processing rates and make a switch if needed.
Warren Dehan, president, Maestro PMS, said:
“Maestro is pleased to offer our clients the strength and stability of the DOLLARS ON THE NET integration from Shift4. Shift4 is an excellent partner in helping us bring secure EMV credit card processing to our mutual clients and protecting cardholder data.”
Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4, said:
“Some service providers have forced merchants into EMV implementations that required them to adjust their infrastructure and business practices. Shift4 is proud to partner with Maestro to offer a solution that instead fits EMV within the merchant’s current operations, specifically for hospitality. In addition to the improved card verification that EMV offers at physical points of sale, hoteliers can truly secure their enterprise with Shift4’s tokenization and point-to-point encryption technologies, which are included in every EMV-certified integration we offer.”
