Our clients trust us with their customers' most precious data, their personal credit card information

TravelCLICK, the leader in hotel ecommerce solutions, announced today that the iHotelier Central Reservation System has been certified by ControlCase as meeting the payment card industry (PCI) Data Security Standards for credit card processing. iHotelier is certified for all the major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. TravelCLICK hotel customers not only experience award-winning website design and booking engine advantages but also the confidence that guest transaction data is secured, delivering a superior online merchandizing solution.

The PCI Data Security Standard is a multifaceted security standard developed by credit card companies. It requires service providers to comply with rigorous requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. This comprehensive standard is intended to help proactively protect consumer account data in online booking transactions from fraud, hacking and other threats.

"Our clients trust us with their customers' most precious data, their personal credit card information," said Abhi Dhar, Chief Information Officer at TravelCLICK. "Keeping data secure is top priority and the foundation of our evolving technology solution. As the leading online merchandizing platform for hotels, our hotel customers are not only confident in our ability to help them convert more consumers, but also to ensure consumer data security."

According to TravelCLICK's eTRAK industry report on hotel booking performance, approximately 30 percent of transactions are direct web bookings, which require a credit card transaction over the Internet.
