Integrated Approach Can Put Businesses on the Fast-Track to Data Security

MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, and Elavon, a leading global payments provider, have integrated their respective gateway and security products to deliver encryption and tokenization for the hotel and food and beverage industries, facilitating a secure environment throughout the entire payment transaction cycle. With the integration work already completed for the MICROS OPERA hotel property management system (PMS) and the primary MICROS food and beverage point-of-sale (POS) platforms, MICROS clients can take immediate advantage of a seamless, secure end-to-end process that combines the existing cost-effective and cutting-edge payment card processing solutions from MICROS with built-in security features like encryption and tokenization from Elavon, providing clients with these benefits:

  • Opportunity to streamline PCI compliance process and reduce time and effort associated with maintaining compliance
  • Ability to consolidate multiple interfaces and certifications for electronic payment processing
  • Ease of implementation, service and support

“MICROS’ innovations in payment processing are allowing us to add value to our clients, and expanding our capabilities with Elavon typifies our approach,” said Kevin King, Vice President of eCommerce and Payments. “Our integrated approach provides business owners with direct access to a simple-to-implement solution that puts businesses on the fast-track to data security.”

Powered by the MICROS Payment Gateway™ and Elavon’s Fusebox™ gateway solution, this next generation payment environment is built upon decades of proven PMS and payment processing expertise. Robust scalability offers a great fit for businesses of any size with any number of workstations – from a single location business to multi-national brands.

“At Elavon, we are highly focused on providing opportunities that help our clients grow,” said Ian Drysdale, EVP and Head of Business Development for Elavon, North America. “Offering an integrated payments approach with MICROS resolves a pain point for hoteliers, retailers and clients who face the complexities of managing a secure end-to-end payments process.  We can eliminate the headache so they can focus on delivering great client experiences.”
