Onyx CenterSource Launches Contactless Virtual Card Solutions

USA, Dallas, Texas. August 04, 2020

Onyx CenterSource, a leading global provider of B2B payments and business intelligence to the hospitality industry, today announced the launch of virtual credit card payment solutions to its hospitality and travel clients worldwide.

Virtual credit card payments allow sensitive data to remain anonymous and secure when payments are made. In addition to enhanced security, this payment method also allows for increased control over the transaction and streamlined, contactless payment.

"Virtual credit card payments are increasingly popular for their security and ease of use," said Mark Dubrow, Onyx CenterSource CEO. "At Onyx, we've been monitoring virtual credit card capabilities closely. Offering these as an alternative form of payment to our clients, in lieu of paper checks, will have benefits across the board, particularly as the hospitality industry recovers from the effects of COVID-19."

In addition to enhanced data security, virtual credit cards offer users dynamic payment rules that verify the accuracy of the charged amounts, providing increased control over accounts payable, he said. "Travel agencies receiving virtual credit card payments will benefit from increased processing speeds and contactless payment. These elements are of heightened importance as the hospitality and travel industries continue to recover from the pandemic."

Virtual credit card payments are automated on behalf of hotel clients and sent electronically to travel agencies, which makes the entire payment process automated and contactless, according to Brian Clubb, Onyx CenterSource senior vice president of product and marketing.

"While we all adjust to the new normal, we're happy to offer an alternative to paper check payments for our many clients that have pivoted to a remote work environment," he said.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
