PA-DSS CertificationScrigno has obtained the PA-DSS certification, the international standard required by the Payment Card Industry Council for all "payment applications", the software that handle payment transactions via credit cards. This certification was required by customers which require from their PMS/CRS providers the PA-DSS compliancy, the environment in which we were able to enter through the integration of Scrigno and virtual POS gateway SETEFI. The high value-added services such as verification, pre-authorization and collection of the credit cards inserted for reservation guarantees, now can be automatically handled directly by Scrigno. This recent effort shows how much attention our company puts to ensure the information security and aims to place Scrigno even more towards the levels of excellence.
PCI-DSS CertificationThe PCI-DSS certification is designed to ensure the protection of cardholder data and defines specific requirements for procedures, network architecture and software to be met by companies that handle credit card numbers (which are stored, processed or transmitted). GP Dati’s SCRIGNO web property management software suite and the entire datacenter where it’s hosted obtained the PCI DSS certification in October 2012. Certification is now required as a prerequisite for membership in the major international hotel groups. The trend is spreading in Europe, and will soon become a standard in our country. The strong volume growth of purchases made by credit and debit cards makes the security environment of payment systems becoming more and more important. Cybercrime and the threat of identity theft reduce the confidence of users and consumers in technology in general, and in electronic commerce in particular, reducing the propensity to use the credit card by the end user. That’s why American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa International founded the Payment Card Security directive, known as PCI DSS standards, with the goal of guaranteeing CC data security. These companies as well as more and more tourism operators are already requesting merchants to comply to PCI DSS. Data protection is therefore a central element of the integrated management security based on a careful supervision of processes, people, infrastructure and technology. The standards set by PCI will soon be mandatory in Italy.
HTNG CertificationGP Dati has recently obtained the HTNG certification (Hotel Technology Next Generation), which can be issued only after verification of compliance with certain technological parameters for the data interface. HTNG is the global trade association designed to promote and improve the diffusion of technology in the hotels, and manages the only certification program for the hotel sector technologies. The "HTNG Certified" logo on a technology product gives buyers the assurance that a vendor's promises of interoperability are backed up by specific conformance to industry-defined norms. The certification allows you to integrate, implement and support more easily the technology products from different suppliers, in order to get more complete solutions with less direct relationships with suppliers, and to maximize the use of standard methods of system integration because of the ratified certification standards, either as through the adoption of common methods.

Thanks to the integration with 3CIntegra the verification of the validity and coverage of the credit card performs automatically at the check in. The front-desk operator simply pass the credit card on the POS: the system checks and blocks the sojourn amount entered on the reservation, and updates the amount with other inserted charges during your stay. At the check-out the blocked-pending amount transforms in the purchase amount.
