“There is no reason why all hotels should not move to this ASAP. It’s probably one of the BEST technologies to come to the front desk in the past ten years.”
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
MIS Computer announced this week that another leader in the high tech hotel industry has purchased HeadsUp FD for its front desk, concierge and PBX, which marks the thirteenth in the current phase of properties which include locations in New York, Mexico City, Trinidad, Waikiki, Indianapolis and several others who have already added the proximity badge PC access solution to their front desk environment.
HeadsUp FD is a computer access solution which uses proximity badges and RFID (radio frequency identification) readers to securely access a computer without manually typing a user name or password.
“We are honored to have HeadsUp FD at these high visibility properties by such a trend setter and innovator when it comes to technology in the hospitality industry,” said Neal Berz, President and Chief Executive Officer of MIS Computer. "Our HeadsUp FD solution enables hotels to enhance the quality of guest service giving front desk agents more heads up time with their guests, improve agent satisfaction and workflow efficiencies, and facilitate agent compliance with security and privacy regulations such as PCI-DSS. Our customers also report that it helps them decrease security risks associated with 'piggy-backing' (two agents sharing the same computer session), replacing the need to manually log in and log out multiple times per day with an easier and more convenient, secure tap of the badge for quick access to their own unique user session."
Even with new and advanced processes aimed at simplifying PCI-DSS compliance such as those described in a recent article in Hotel Management Magazine, measures still need to be put in place which allow users to quickly and conveniently access and secure shared computers.
Peggy Clark, VP of Sales and Marketing for HeadsUp FD, says, “Maintaining data privacy and security compliance is a critical issue for organizations of all types and sizes. Cost and complexity should not impede security or convenience. Solutions like HeadsUp FD have long been viewed as options only for large enterprise organizations both from a budgetary and technical perspective. This is no longer the case. HeadsUp FD fits the bill for our customers ranging from small independently owned properties, all the way up to large enterprise organizations given its simplicity to deploy, scalability and affordability. Whether an organization has one property, three or three thousand, HeadsUp FD can scale and grow with an organization of any size.”
The HeadsUp FD solution was born out of the healthcare IT industry as a sign-on solution for doctors and nurses accessing an EHR system. HeadsUp FD was officially launched by MIS Computer in 2012 is currently available worldwide.
