Payment gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and Maestro PMS, an enterprise property management hotel software suite, 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.
