Shift 4 & GuestTracker Hotel Systems - Hospitality Advantages
DOLLARS ON THE NET® is Software as a service (SaaS), so it lets you audit and settle transactions from any Web-accessible computer and perform any function necessary across your enterprise, right down to each location or profit center.
Our solution removes CHD from the merchant environment. GuestTracker PMS/POS does not transmit or store (CHD) card holder data, and is outside the scope of PCI. When using Shift 4’s P2PE solution, the hotel's CDE can be reduced down to the swipe device itself.
With the cost of initially making a hotel PCI-compliant estimated more than $100 per room, not to mention the ongoing cost to maintain compliance, Shift4's approach to reducing the CDE translates into dollars in the bank.
TrueTokens are on file for up to 24 months and can be used for incremental authorizations, credits, future charges, incidental charges, no-show charges, and chargeback defense. They can also support card-on-file to guarantee reservations across multiple properties within the same organization, process subsequent transactions, or be used to conduct research – all without introducing CHD into the merchant environment. TrueTokens are always portable, meaning you can switch banks or processors as frequently as your business needs require without losing the ability to use your TrueTokens.
Centralized connectivity provides one solution for properties that have multiple systems, (GT|PMS, GT|POS, GT|Retail GT|Ticketing). We centralize all your accounting, reporting, etc. with DOLLARS ON THE NET for full enterprise management.
From DOLLARS ON THE NET, a vendor can send a copy of the folio/invoice to be stored in the transaction record. This allows for centralization of all PMS/POS information to generate the necessary items for chargeback defense. HTML invoices allow PMS and POS vendors to pass folio details to Shift4 so that an audit staff can investigate payment transactions and see the associated source invoice.
DOLLARS ON THE NET eliminates the need for rekey or card look-up departments and allows the merchant to control who has access to CHD and there is no need for third party intervention. Also, there are no retrieval or access fees and you get unrestricted access to transaction records.
Shift4 is a merchant advocate. We give you the facts and look out for your best interests.
