On 24th April 2014, Leading global provider of onboard retail and payment technology solutions, GuestLogix Inc., announced the availability of its core transaction processing technologies along with its global portfolio of 82 payment and operational certifications, as a cloud-based solution to more easily enable travel operators to transact ancillary services at all travel touch points.
At the moment, the Company's Global Payment Gateway (GPG) and PCI-certified Transaction Processing Engine (TPE) support ancillary revenue programs of over 80 travel operators and handle payments across 114 countries. This new cloud-based payment processing model will help ensure that airlines, airports as well as other operators within the travel segment, are able to process payments in a secure and compliant manner at all access points, says the company. This includes within mobile applications, on the web, at kiosks as well as on handheld POS devices.
'As ancillary products and services continue to be a vital business component at virtually every touch point where travel operators connect with their passengers, there is an intensifying need to ensure consistency of payment compliance and security within each access point,' said President & CEO of GuestLogix, said Brett Proud. 'Common Use Transaction Processing ensures that all travel operators operate within the same payment industry standards across the globe. We are proud that the core components of GuestLogix' payment solutions are now available in a cloud-based model for any travel operator or ancillary provider to link to for rapid implementation,' he added.
'It has become commonplace in the travel market to have different business units within each operator using different payment technologies to support each of their ancillary access points. We are thrilled to see CUTP come to light in order to drive much more consistency in the security and availability of global transaction processing at all touch points,' said EVP Global Sales & Product Strategy, Ilia Kostov. 'We are proud to be in the best position to provide this service, given that we currently support transactions in 114 different countries and our global payment processing technologies are now fully available through cloud-based services.'
