Newest Release Offers Tools to Elevate Data Security & Compliance with GDPR
STOWE, VT — June 18th, 2018 — Stowe, VT— Springer-Miller Systems (SMS), the leading provider of guest-centric hospitality and spa management systems, announces the availability of version 7.0 of the SpaSoft Spa and Activity Management Solution.
SpaSoft version 7.0 features focus on:
- GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Enhancements,
- Secure Payment Solutions Extensions with PXP EMV,
- Central Configuration Standardization, and
- Microsoft SQL Server Database Support.
SpaSoft version 7.0 offers an updated system with a series of features that will assist spas to comply with the GDPR regulations and provide methods to enhance overall guest data security. In an effort to attain our goal of being completely database agnostic, the SpaSoft system has expanded its database support to include Microsoft SQL Server, providing more options for our customers.
SpaSoft now offers an additional secure payment solution with our proud partner PXP, which supports our mission of being out of PA-DSS Scope with respect to the Payment Card Industry security requirements. PXP adds to the already extensive list of partners that SpaSoft securely interfaces with to ensure optimal operations.
"We couldn't be more excited about our partnership with PXP. Our SpaSoft customers are comforted knowing that their data is protected as a result of our extensive security measures. Adding integration with PXP allows us to extend that peace of mind to our SpaSoft customers around the globe." commented Michelle Young, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SpaSoft.
Franco Del Basso, Board Director and Head of Business Development for PXP commented “We are delighted that the integration between SpaSoft and our ANYpay applications was achieved. Our relationship with Springer-Miller Systems spans many years with mutual Customer relationships across Europe. This latest integration with our PCI P2Pe approved applications will ensure customers benefit from both systems robust security features and will help cement further growth across our mutual territories."
The latest additions to the SpaSoft Enterprise module, released last year focused on the ability to set central configurations for spas. SpaSoft Enterprise leverages the benefits of SpaSoft Hosting Services or a customer managed hosting environment, to connect individual spas in the cloud. Spa groups, chains and management companies that choose to utilize SpaSoft Enterprise gain the ability to see and access valuable information in real time from a single location.
The Central Configuration Standardization enhancement enables more efficient and controlled standardization at the enterprise level. Configurations can be “locked down” and only changed at the enterprise level, if desired, or controlled with user clearance. This feature also allows spas to easily enter basic configurations to help accelerate the onboarding process. This enhancement allows for reductions in system training time and increases efficiencies in the spa.
Finally, in v.7.0 SpaSoft has added the Microsoft SQL Server database system as a new data storage option. From a user perspective, there is no operational difference. This addition allows customers who use SQL Server today to extend that database to operate SpaSoft also. SpaSoft is now one-step closer to being database agnostic. Penka Sevova, SpaSoft General Manager commented, "As we move towards the future, SpaSoft will continue to open up the platform and offer our customers a variety of operational choices. This includes hosting, enterprise, relational databases, reporting and much more."
