"Infor Hospitality’s experience working with these organizations, combined with our industry-leading payments technology, will help hotel owners protect guests’ payment data and the hotel’s reputation as well."

ATLANTA – (June 28, 2017) – Elavon, a leading global payments provider and subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (USB: NYSE), has teamed with Infor, a cloud-based business software provider, to offer hotel owners with security tools to help protect guests’ credit and debit card transactions.

EMV (Eurocard, MasterCard and Visa) adoption continues to grow in the United States, so Infor Hospitality has extended its relationship with Elavon to offer clients a fully certified EMV solution that will help mitigate guests’ risk of card-present fraud losses. Infor completed EMV certification to Elavon’s payment gateway, Fusebox, and its Simplify application, providing a combination of EMV, encryption and tokenization to help protect card data. Simplify works with the latest versions of Infor HMS and Infor Epitome.net, creating a better guest experience for hotels seeking both security and improved payment data management.  

“As the industry evolves, so does our software, and this especially rings true in hospitality, where customer preferences continue to change and the demand for higher security standards at properties is critical,” said Stewart Applbaum, senior vice president, Hospitality, Infor. “As data breaches continue to plague the industry, collaborating with Elavon to offer enhanced security to our customers will help our customers remain competitive in a crowded market and provide an unparalleled guest experience.”

 “The hospitality industry has seen an uptick in breaches recently, making a solution that offers a security suite so important,” said Guy Harris, president of North America and Global Revenue for Elavon. “Infor Hospitality’s experience working with these organizations, combined with our industry-leading payments technology, will help hotel owners protect guests’ payment data and the hotel’s reputation as well.”
