VANCOUVER, BC – September 29, 2015 – RoomKeyPMS, the leading cloud-based property management software for the global hospitality industry, is excited to announce that it has completed the Shift4 EMV Chip and PIN certification process. With the deadline looming for EMV implementation, hoteliers are looking to their PMS companies for this integration assistance.

EMV is a special microprocessor chip embedded within a credit or debit card to help prevent counterfeiting, skimming and the use of lost or stolen payment cards. Hotels that implement terminals fitted for EMV would no longer be liable for card-present credit card fraud. Terminals not fitted for EMV can leave hotels liable for losses or charge-backs. Integration of EMV will also allow many customers to utilize debit cards where they could not before.

“RoomKeyPMS is committed to assisting our hoteliers in securing their data and protecting against fraud. With this Shift4 certification, hoteliers can rest assured that we are doing our part in assisting with the EMV shift,” says Kerry Brock, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for RoomKeyPMS. “Working with Shift4 allows us the confidence to support our hoteliers and keep them in PCI compliance.”

Dave Oder, Shift4’s CEO, said: “We are proud to leverage our innovative technology and unique bank and processor independence to make the time-consuming and expensive EMV certification process simpler for everyone involved. Through our integration with RoomKeyPMS, more hoteliers will now be able to easily and seamlessly make the transition to EMV.”
