Shift4 and Resort Data Processing Announce Joint EMV Solution for the Resort, Hotel and Lodging Industry
EMV Solution Is Available Today With Eight Processors in the U.S. and Canada
LAS VEGAS and VAIL, Colo. — Dec. 02, 2016 — (PRWeb) —
Payment gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and Resort Data Processing (RDP), provider of property management software, today announced the general availability of their joint EMV-certified solution for vacation rentals, timeshares, resorts, hotels, campgrounds and private residence clubs.
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 RDP’s property management software, lodging facilities of all sizes 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 facility’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 hospitality environments to easily implement EMV, whether it’s a hotel chain or a standalone resort.
- 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 enables lodging facilities 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.
Barry Biegler, president, Resort Data Processing, said:
“Our customers work across the lodging space, including vacation rentals, hotels, campgrounds and timeshare resorts. Each has different payment processing needs and Shift4 meets them all. We’re pleased to partner with Shift4 to add a comprehensive EMV solution to increase critical customer security without requiring a change in infrastructure.”
Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4, said:
“At Shift4, we’re dedicated to providing innovative payment solutions that help merchants optimize their operations. We’re excited to partner with RDP to extend this mission by offering an EMV solution that helps lodging facilities keep their daily business practices and financial relationships intact while enhancing their security posture.”
