StayNTouch Rover™ PMS Integrates With Merchant Link’s EMV Product, TransactionLink™, To Help Hoteliers Combat Card Present Fraud

StayNTouch, an innovator in mobile technology and Property Management Systems (PMS) for hotels, is happy to announce EMV integration between Rover™, its cloud-based property management system (PMS) and Merchant Link, a leading provider of cloud-based payment gateway and data security solutions. Merchant Link enables more than 6 billion transactions annually for some of the world’s best-known merchants, providing connectivity to the major U.S. payment card processors.

EMV integration provides StayNTouch hotel customers the third leg of the transaction security stool. Previously, StayNTouch had integrated with Merchant Link’s TransactionVault® (tokenization), and TransactionShield® (P2PE) products, which secure transaction data at rest and in flight respectively. TransactionLink™ (EMV Chip and PIN) provides an additional level of authentication at the point of sale that increases the security of a payment transaction and reduces chances of fraud.

“Hoteliers have the unique challenge of attempting to secure payment card data from multiple consumer touch points,” said Laura A. Meck, EVP, Sales & Marketing. “EMV now eases their concerns as it pertains to card present fraud and, working in concert with tokenization and point-to-point encryption, provides the highest level of security at every step of the transaction process.”

“Merchant Link has long been an important partner for us and our hotel customers,” said Jos Schaap, CEO and Founder of StayNTouch. “With EMV integration completed, we are proud to now offer the market’s leading transaction security suite. Hoteliers now have one less thing to worry about.”

Rainmaker and StayNTouch Partner to Help Hotels Increase Bookings, Optimize Revenue and Boost Profitability

 The Rainmaker Group (Rainmaker), a leading provider of cloud-based hospitality revenue management software solutions, and StayNTouch, an innovator in mobile technology and property management systems for hotels, today announced a partnership agreement whereby Rainmaker’s guestrev® solution is integrated with StayNTouch’s Rover™ cloud-based property management system. The integration will help hotels increase bookings, optimize revenue and boost profitability.

An early adopter of the integrated solution is Basecamp Boulder, a boutique property in Colorado managed by Filament Hospitality. “We are excited about the integration between Rover PMS and guestrev because it will enable us to easily leverage the data that exists in our PMS to improve the accuracy of our demand forecasts and pricing,” said Ingrid Summerfield, president of Filament Hospitality. “Each of these solutions is powerful on its own; together, they provide an unbeatable combination that not only will ensure more profit-driven business decisions but also will give our property a competitive advantage.”

The guestrev solution, Rainmaker’s flagship product, provides hoteliers with the tools they need to forecast demand at the finest level of granularity, model the impact of events and detect demand patterns often missed by human analysis, and strategically align sales and marketing efforts to increase bookings and maximize revenue. Built on Rainmaker’s total guest valuation methodology, guestrev enables properties to better understand demand and set rates that optimize guest room and non-room revenue across various segments to maximize total guest value.

The Rover PMS is StayNTouch’s cloud-based property management system that streamlines operations from front desk to housekeeping. It is compatible with any device and offers simple monthly pricing that includes training, integrations and configuration.

“We are pleased to partner with StayNTouch to bring our innovative revenue optimization solution to its customer base,” said Tammy Farley, president of The Rainmaker Group. “This integration will allow Rover PMS users to leverage the power of guestrev to suggest the most appropriate room rates; and, as a result, increase profitability. This is an exciting partnership for hotel customers and for us, as we look forward to helping properties outperform their revenue and profit objectives.”

“In the highly competitive hospitality industry, accurate and timely information is critical to success,” said Jos Schaap, chief executive officer at StayNTouch. “The integration between the Rover PMS and guestrev enables properties to forecast demand, set accurate pricing and improve year-over-year performance. We are committed to providing state-of-the-art technology to our customers and are thrilled to partner with Rainmaker to bring this groundbreaking solution to hotels around the world.”
