Shift4, Posera offer joint solution for hospitality industry
Las Vegas and Toronto, Dec. 1, 2017 -- Payment services and gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and Posera Ltd. (TSX: PAY), a leading provider of software solutions for the hospitality industry, today announced the availability of their feature-rich and EMV-certified joint solution.
Shift4's DOLLARS ON THE NET integrates with Posera's Maitre'D to support credit, debit, and gift card transactions, and provides out-of-the-box support for U.S. and Canadian EMV, point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. Their offering includes comprehensive auditing and accounting tools, the industry's best uptime and simple adoption of emerging and alternative payment methods, such as mobile wallets.
With the joint solution, food and beverage (F&B) operators can process EMV payments to help prevent the fraudulent use of stolen card data at physical points of sale in fine and casual dining, quick service, hotels, bars and more, while adding the layered security of Shift4's tokenization and PCI-validated P2PE. This keeps sensitive cardholder data out of the business's payment processing environment — greatly reducing the risk of a breach and simplifying PCI assessments — while protecting their guests' payment data from hackers.
"We're very excited to announce the availability of the Posera and Shift4 integrated solution," said Dan Poirier, Chief Executive Officer at Posera. "The full-featured Maitre'D solution pairs perfectly with Shift4's suite of payment solutions and services."
Shift4 proudly supports more than a dozen EMV-capable terminals by Ingenico Group and Verifone, a host of payment functionalities such as bar tabs, tips, EMV quick chip and more. Their unmatched bank and processor options make it possible for F&B operators to adopt EMV without changing their financial relationships, giving them the freedom to negotiate the best payment processing rates or make a switch if needed. Shift4 is currently certified for EMV with 10 major processors — delivering unparalleled coverage of acquirers in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean and participating regions of Visa Direct.
"Shift4's ability to provide options for merchants of all sizes and in all industries, has allowed us to support our mission of merchant advocacy," said Daniel Montellano, VP of Strategic Business Development at Shift4. "Our partnership with Posera and integration to their Maitre'D POS now provides a top choice for hospitality and food and beverage operators."
