Keep your guests’ credit card information secure

Most hotel operators don’t even realize that paper credit card forms violate PCI requirements, which are mandated by the credit card companies to keep customer information secure. Non-compliance penalties start at $5,000 and can be as high as $500,000. Canary’s secure digital solution handles PCI compliance for you, so you never have to worry about it again.
