Fortis, a payment and commerce technology company for software providers, marketplaces and scaling businesses, has partnered with Visual Matrix, a hotel property management system, to integrate its commerce platform with Visual Matrix’s hotel operating system.
“Fortis’ partnership with Visual Matrix will further innovate the hotel industry by providing guests with the increased selection of payment choices they crave,” Greg Cohen, CEO, Fortis, told Hotel Business. “Both companies have a deep knowledge of the hospitality industry and can streamline hotel operations processes like reconciliation through integration with the software. This partnership brings the diverse components of hospitality operations together in a single place, saving both time and money for hotel operators. The Fortis and Visual Matrix teams are driven by innovation to help hotel operators prepare for what’s next as guest expectations shift and the hospitality industry evolves.”
“Our partnership with Fortis gives Visual Matrix users an opportunity to provide guests with more payment choices,” Georgine Muntz, CEO, Visual Matrix, added. “The Fortis team understands the unique challenges of the hospitality industry and provides a platform that simplifies payments for guests and expands payment choices as new options emerge.”
Fortis provides custom payments solutions for the lodging industry, offering features like multiple payment options, enhanced security, enhanced chargeback management and transparent pricing.
“Visual Matrix will leverage Fortis’ technology, allowing guests to pay using the method they prefer while eliminating double entry recording of payments at the front desk,” said Cohen. “By integrating Fortis’ platform into Visual Matrix’s property management system, hoteliers are given more options to maximize revenue and expand payment choices. Further, enhanced security features will align and simplify revenue and reporting with reduced fraud risks and technology hurdles. This not only impacts the hoteliers’ operations and profitability but the customer experience for thousands of people across the U.S. as this partnership will ultimately reach top hospitality brands and national hotel chains, such as Best Western.”
