Treasure Island deploys technology to protect credit card data
Treasure Island Las Vegas uses Agilysys' lodging management system as its property management system.

Treasure Island Las Vegas has partnered with Agilysys and b4checkin to deploy b4easypost, an online payment and posting software solution that aims to enhance the security of consumers' credit card information.

b4easypost, developed by b4checkin, works by first providing an online platform for guests and meeting planners to make deposits and payments to a hotel, then automatically and securely posting those payments to the property's management system. This eliminates the need for paper credit card authorization forms, which, aside from their inconvenience, are prone to human error and contrary to PCI compliance standards. Additionally, this end-to-end electronic solution significantly reduces credit card chargebacks to the hotel. Overall, by facilitating protected e-commerce transactions, there is a significant cost reduction for hotels as well.

Treasure Island Las Vegas is a 2,884-room casino hotel located on the Las Vegas Strip that uses Agilysys' lodging-management system as its property-management system. Following the launch of b4easypost at Treasure Island Las Vegas in late September, the software has already processed and successfully posted an incredible volume of more than 800 transactions totaling more than $400,000 in the first 30 days of operation.
