Shift4, SkyTouch Offer Hotel Industry a Joint EMV Solution

Payment services and gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and cloud-based hotel PMS provider SkyTouch Technology announced the general availability of their joint EMV-certified solution for hoteliers. This announcement comes after a year of revolutionary cloud-based EMV integration in hotels.
 
With Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET and SkyTouch Technology’s cloud-based hotel management system, hoteliers can process EMV payments to help prevent the fraudulent use of stolen card data in card-present environments while adding the layered security of point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. This keeps sensitive cardholder data out of the hotelier’s payment processing environment, greatly reducing their breach profile and PCI scope — and protecting their guests’ payment data from hackers.
 
Shift4’s complete bank and processor neutrality makes it easy for hotels 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. Shift4 is currently certified for EMV with eight major processors — with more on the way — delivering coverage of acquirers in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
