How Do Hotel Vendors Manage Cost for PCI PA-DSS Compliance? 

Michael B. Squires, president, SoftscribeInc.

“Several of our hospitality tech vendor clients invested substantial time and money to be certified compliant with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) guidelines,” said Michael Squires, president and COO of Softscribe Inc. “This required considerable effort and helps enable their hotel clients to earn their own compliance.  But utilizing PA-DSS-compliant technology is just one aspect of what hotel operators have to implement to earn compliance by the July 1 deadline.”  Squires’ blog entries provide online resources that describe the operational areas affected by the PCI PA-DSS-compliance mandate.
