b4checkin’s b4easypost Achieves Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality OPERA

Hotels using Oracle Hospitality OPERA now have access to a Fully Automated and Secure Online Payment and Posting Solution

 

September XX, 2017 – b4checkin, Inc., a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has completed Oracle Validated Integration of b4easypost v3.1 with Oracle Hospitality OPERA 5.5. b4easypost eliminates the use of credit card authorization forms with a secure and interactive platform for guests and meeting planners to make payments to hotels and then automatically posts those payments to Oracle Hospitality OPERA, therein with this two-way integration.

 

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. Credit card authorization forms have long been a point of aggravation for hotels because they are inconvenient, prone to human error and, importantly, not PCI compliant. By eliminating this labor-intensive process, b4easypost provides an automatic, real-time system for hotels to connect deposits with guest accounts.

 

“We’re excited about this new integration with Oracle Hospitality OPERA because our payment and posting solution can seamlessly post, so it can now help thousands of hotels alleviate an antiquated business practice that is not in line with current technology or security standards,” said Saar Fabrikant, president and CEO of b4checkin. “b4easypost increases customer convenience and satisfaction by streamlining the payment process as well as reducing costs for hotels by eliminating credit card authorization forms and the labor necessary to handle this manual process.”

 

“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between b4easypost and Oracle Hospitality OPERA is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said David Hicks, vice president, Worldwide ISV, OEM and Java Business Development, Oracle.  “For solutions deployed on-premises, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”

 

In addition to reservations and group payments, b4easypost can also facilitate miscellaneous payments such as gift cards, lost and found payments and offer other key benefits, including:

 

  • Reduces PCI scope at the hotel with PCI compliance
  • Validates reservations and groups in real-time
  • Posts automatically to Oracle Hospitality OPERA
  • Lowers labor costs with hands-free process
  • Eliminates printing costs
  • Lowers transaction fees
  • Integrates with major payment gateways
  • Eliminates chargebacks via AVS Verification
