Property management software company Visual Matrix has completed an agreement with Shift4 Payments to offer enhanced payment processing capabilities to Visual Matrix property-management system hotel customers. As part of the integration, each of Visual Matrix’s 2,000+ hoteliers will be able to access Shift4’s end-to-end payment solution though Visual Matrix. This all-in-one payment offering includes Shift4’s secure platform with Payment Card Industry-validated point-to-point encryption as well as free hardware, contactless solutions and a range of services to meet payment needs.

Secure EMV payment processing creates a secure method for hotels to store and use credit card information without the risk of exposing sensitive customer data. Shift4’s payment processing technologies, including QR Pay, let the Visual Matrix PMS facilitate fully contactless payments, a trend that has gained in popularity following the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are excited to partner with Shift4 to provide the highest level of payment security to all of our hotel partners,” said Georgine Muntz, CEO of Visual Matrix. “Shift4’s offer to include hardware and preferred pricing to our hotelier customers is critical as they emerge from a tough pandemic recovery period.”

“As the leader in payment processing for the hospitality industry, Shift4 prides itself on delivering a superior commerce experience for both hotels and their guests," said Michael Isaacman, Shift4's chiec commercial officer. "We are honored to work with Visual Matrix to provide a secure end-to-end solution for all of their hotel partners.”
