Ariane further improves check-in/out security with new partnership


Ariane Systems selects Elevon, a global payments provider, to provide its Simplify security solution to Ariane’s more than 2,600 hotel customers in 23 countries. Elavon’s Simplify payment software allows the hotel property management system to securely accept EMV cards, contactless payments such as Apple Pay and other forms of electronic payments. At the same time, Elavon’s solution keeps card information safe with layers of security technology via EMV card acceptance, encryption and tokenization.

“Adding integration with Elavon for our online and kiosk check-in is an innovative addition to our self-service solutions, and our U.S.-based customers are demanding more security,” said Jeff Councilman, COO of Ariane Systems in North America.

For in-person, kiosk card acceptance, Simplify encrypts and isolates card data, protecting consumers and hotel owners alike. Simplify has the ability to accept EMV chip cards from all major brands, mobile wallets (including Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay), and traditional magnetic stripe cards, providing guests with a full range of payment options.

Ariane Systems also will make use of Elavon’s Fusebox gateway, which supports integrated token technology for Ariane’s customers who offer eCommerce and mCommerce transactions. This means that guests paying with their smart phones or online will be protected with multiple layers of security.
