Shift4 Announces Alliance with SkyTouch Technology

Integration of DOLLARS ON THE NET® and SkyTouch Hotel OS Allows Seamless Payment Transactions for Hotels

LAS VEGAS (Marketwired) Tuesday, October 22, 2013 – Shift4 Corporation, provider of the world’s largest independent payment gateway, and SkyTouch Technology, which offers the most widely distributed cloud-based property management system in the lodging industry, today announce an alliance that will pair Shift4’s enterprise payment solution DOLLARS ON THE NET® with SkyTouch’s cloud-based Hotel OS.

SkyTouch Hotel OS includes a cloud-based property and rate management system that allows hoteliers to manage their properties from any device with a Web browser.

“We’ve worked with SkyTouch on proprietary systems for one of our mutual customers and already have thousands of hotels online using our joint solution,” said Shift4 VP of Business Development Bob Lowe. “We’re excited to now see this proven integration rolled out to new customers.”

The integration will leverage the power of Shift4’s Universal Transaction Gateway® (UTG®) to facilitate fast, reliable, and secure payments for SkyTouch Hotel OS users.

“Aligning with Shift4 was a natural progression for SkyTouch, as we continue to offer a wider variety of interfaces and services to our customers,” stated Charlie Green, SkyTouch’s Director of Product Management. “Many hotels are looking for a quick and reliable way to process their transactions, and through our alliance with Shift4 we make it seamless to handle them right through our Hotel OS.”

With its Hotel OS, SkyTouch Technology aims to offer integrated solutions designed to maximize efficiency and profitability for hoteliers. Their cloud-based platform provides the ideal environment for combining solutions that meet the customers’ needs with a minimal investment of equipment and a high level of reliability. SkyTouch Hotel OS is 100% Web-based, which gives the hotel staff the flexibility to manage key business functions from anywhere using an Internet-enabled PC, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.
