iTesso Enhances Data Security With Merchant Link Interface

The revolutionary iTesso Enterprise Lodging System partners with Merchant Link for enhanced data security through point-to-point ncryption and tokenization

Breda, Netherlands - iTesso, the global innovator in Cloud-native hospitality technology, announces a new interface between the iTesso Enterprise Lodging System and Merchant Link, a leading provider of payment gateway and data security solutions. By teaming with Merchant Link, the iTesso solution is not subject to Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements, but actually exceeds the standard by completely eliminating the storage of cardholder data in the iTesso database.

With the new interface, Merchant Link's secure Payment Gateway™, TransactionVault® and TransactionShield® products deliver robust point-to-point encryption and strong tokenization. By deploying encrypting devices on premise, credit card information is first sent to Merchant Link for tokenization. The token is then sent to iTesso, where it is saved on the reservation. This way, hotels using the iTesso Enterprise Lodging System never see sensitive credit card data in their user interface or database.

"Merchant Link is an ideal payment data security partner for the iTesso solution because the company's experience with Cloud-based transactions was an excellent match for our needs," says Erik Weller, paradigm executive for iTesso. "We aim to provide our customers with the best yet simplest solutions, and the Merchant Link offerings fit that strategy."

"Merchant Link's TransactionVault works at the point of sale, so the POS and PMS never see or store sensitive credit card information," said Laura Meck, executive vice president for sales and marketing for Merchant Link. "The solution integrates easily with iTesso's Cloud-native Enterprise Lodging System and is competitively priced, making it a win-win for iTesso's customers."

The iTesso Enterprise Lodging System (ELS) is uniquely suitable for hotel groups and branded chains looking for technology to power their brand. Built from the ground up to take full advantage of what the cloud has to offer, iTesso ELS provides High Availability High Performance (HA HP) and virtually unlimited scalability to the hospitality industry.

Although it offers PMS and CRS functionality, iTesso ELS goes beyond the conventional hotel management software with:
guest and staff facing mobile applications
native channel management
a proactive helpdesk
fast browser-based software supporting BYOD
all-inclusive pricing in a SaaS model
eLearning modules accessible to all users from anywhere
intuitive and user-friendly software
a revolutionary open design
