Hotel Industry Turns to Integration for Full-Network Payment Protection

Among the countless data breaches occurring throughout businesses and institutions every day, assaults on a hospitality establishment can be the most devastating to customers. When staying at a resort, customers use their credit cards at different locations like spas and restaurants as they enjoy their stay. To maintain this relaxing atmosphere, hotels need to do everything they can to prevent data breaches and protect their customers’ sensitive financial information.

Customers should never have to worry about a malicious entity getting their personal information when they use their credit card for every day purchases. FreedomPay is the only solution provider in the payment industry that provides protection across the entirety of merchants’ payment systems within a hospitality environment. FreedomPay offers extensive integrations with leading PMS and POS systems used throughout hotels.

Stories about data breaches at hotels have found their way into recent headlines, and these stories are becoming more frequent. Even the elite Omni Hotel reported a breach on July 8th. As hackers’ capabilities increase, so must the security used to thwart them.

FreedomPay’s security reduces the impact of attacks by removing all usable credit card data from the hotel’s network. Because we can provide this breadth of security across the entirety of a hospitality eco-system, our solution provides hospitality executives with peace of mind in a challenging security environment. In addition, by deploying FreedomPay’s platform, transaction data from across the resort is captured in a single solution and can be used for loyalty and rewards programs.

This payment security benefits both the customer and client. It provides customers peace of mind their financial information is safe throughout the entire hotel, and it allows the hotel to secure credit card transactions across disparate point of sales throughout the resort. Our platform is integrated with all the major Oracle Hospitality PMS and POS solutions, which simplifies deployment. The FreedomPay Hosted Payment Page also secures online customer transactions made on hotel ecommerce sites.

Overseeing your establishment’s security can be an arduous task given the number of providers in the market. However, at FreedomPay we pride ourselves on the breadth of payment security coverage we can manage across entire hospitality ecosystems.

Data breaches are becoming a primary point of concern for all businesses. However, the payment security and cardholder data protection provided and created by FreedomPay will always rise to, and stay ahead of, virtual security gaps within every financial transaction in hotels. Easy integration with PMS and POS systems in hotels’ ecosystems is leading to the widespread adoption of FreedomPay in this market.
