Conferma Pay and Canary Technologies have partnered to create a seamless virtual payments experience in hotels, delivering improved guest check-in and secure payment communication for business travellers.

The leading hotel communication system Conferma Pay Connect has integrated with Canary Technologies’ Digital Authorization solution to further automate the virtual payment process, delivering payment data securely through an application programming interface (API), allowing hotels to receive payment details via their preferred method.

The new integration enables secure payment communication and improves the guest check-in experience, particularly for corporate travellers. All the necessary data is delivered to a single location that is accessible to the hotel’s front desk when needed and also sent directly to the hotel’s property management system.

Stuart Davenport, Chief Product Officer at Conferma Pay, said: “All hotels and corporate travellers should have access to the simplest and safest payment methods and this integration will expand the use of virtual cards. Before the launch of Conferma Pay Connect a few years ago, we would send 100% of our payment instructions to hoteliers via fax; today only 7% of our volume is via this legacy communication method and we’re on a mission to make that 0%. Our technology provides connections to enable more frictionless payment experiences, and by partnering with Canary Technologies hotel payment will be made easier. Virtual cards are the ideal solution for businesses paying for hotel stays, providing an unrivalled control over spend and unparalleled payment security.”

Aman Shahi, VP of Product at Canary Technologies, said: “We’re excited to integrate Canary’s leading Digital Authorization solution with Conferma’s world-leading virtual payments technology. We are trusted to improve the service of over 20,000 hoteliers worldwide and these hotels will now experience improved guest check-in and more secure virtual payments.”

The leading virtual card solution will be available to hotels using Conferma Pay Connect and Canary Technologies’ Digital Authorization solution.
