Mohegan Sun Adopts Secure Payment Solution by b4checkin
Mohegan Sun, one of the United States largest entertainment destinations located in Uncasville, Connecticut, has partnered with Agilysys and b4checkin to deploy b4easypost, the hospitality industry's first secure cloud-based credit card authorization payment and posting platform, developed by b4checkin.
b4easypost by b4checkin facilitates card-not-present transactions for the hospitality industry, providing a fully PCI-compliant platform where guests and 3rd parties can make deposits and payments to a hotel remotely. The b4easypost application then automatically and securely posts those payments to the property management system (PMS). This eliminates the inconvenience of paper credit card authorization forms, which are prone to human error and non-PCI-compliant. Additionally, this end-to-end electronic solution significantly reduces credit card chargeback costs associated with traditional systems.
Located between Boston and New York City, Mohegan Sun is home to three unique casinos, 1,600 deluxe hotel rooms, 2 world-class spas, a golf course, over 90 shops, restaurants, and bars as well as three award-winning entertainment venues including a 10,000-seat Arena. On May 30, 2018, Mohegan Sun unveiled the $80 million and 250,000 square foot Earth Expo & Convention Center. Mohegan Sun uses Agilysys' industry-leading Lodging Management System® (LMS) as its PMS, for which b4easypost has a dedicated and fully licensed application program interface (API). With the installation of b4easypost in January 2018, the software has processed almost four-thousand transactions totaling over eight-million dollars within the year.
"We've needed an electronic solution to replace the cumbersome and antiquated paper authorization forms hotels have been using for deposits and payments," said John Ware, Director of IT at Mohegan Sun. "It's a particular relief for us to have found this solution, given that the number of these transactions at a sizeable casino hotel can run well into the tens of thousands each year. Automating this process has been a game changer in terms of data security, compliance and cost savings."
"The implementation at Mohegan Sun represents yet another in a long line of successes that we've had with b4easypost," said Saar Fabrikant, President, and CEO of b4checkin. "We're so happy to help hotels address a pain point that existed in the hospitality industry for decades - both in terms of reducing the labor efforts associated with processing payments as well as enhancing data security which is critical in today's technology eco-system. We encourage all hotels to investigate all options when making cybersecurity improvements because the risk of a breach is far too great when it comes to credit card related data. b4easypost addresses this need head on and can work for any hotel around the world."
