G6 Hospitality, parent company of the iconic brands Motel 6 and Studio 6 has selected Ingenico Group’s customer-facing iSC Touch 480 touchscreen readers, designed for high-traffic and high-volume lodging and retail environments.
The devices are fully equipped to handle all forms of electronic payment: EMV chip card, magnetic stripe, signature capture, and NFC/contactless, and fully support new payment options such as NFC, wallets and QR codes. Ingenico Group’s iSC Touch 480 was the first POS device in the world to meet the more rigorous PCI PTS V4 hardware and software security requirements.
The first phase of this process involves the installation of new terminals, which will provide the foundation for the ongoing payment strategy roll out. The Ingenico Group terminals will eventually enable the corporate owned properties to accept EMV and NFC payments. Future enhancements will also allow guests to check-in kiosk style, making the process easier and faster for travelers.
G6 Hospitality LLC owns, operates and franchises over 1,200 economy lodging locations under the iconic Motel 6 and the extended stay Studio 6 brands in the U.S and Canada, and Hotel 6 and Estudio 6 brands in Latin America.
