NORTHWIND Partners With Shift4 To Provide Users Secure, Cost-Saving Payment Card Processing

NORTHWIND and Shift4, two players in hospitality software and services, have joined forces to offer hoteliers unparalleled security and the ability to utilize any bank or processor that offers the best rates and service without required programming of the property management system (PMS).

NORTHWIND, provider of Maestro Enterprise Property Management hotel software and reservation software solutions for the hospitality industry, announced today it partnered with Shift4, a developer of enterprise payment solutions, to provide Maestro users with a fully-tokenized interface for payment card processing. Tokenization exceeds the Payment Card Industry's Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) compliance requirements and enables operators to choose any payment processor they like to obtain the lowest fees.

Shift4 interface helps Maestro operators save money
The relationship with Shift4 enables Maestro users to implement Shift4's DOLLARS ON THE NET tokenized payment card processing system with the newest, most secure technology and flexibility. The Shift4 system also lets Maestro clients save money by selecting any bank or processor they feel is best for their business without custom programming.

Shift4's integrated tokenization technology means that no cardholder data (CHD) is stored, transmitted or processed at the property. Maestro clients using Shift4's system will exceed the scope of the PCI PA-DSS security requirements because actual guest cardholder data will not be handled by property systems.
