Conferma Pay, a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Hotel Expertise for its integration of Conferma Pay Connect with Oracle Hospitality OPERA, delivering a secure and seamless check-in and check-out experience for hotel guests.
Expertise is a core tenet of the modernized Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) program and allows Oracle partners to highlight their capabilities in a focused area. Ultimately, Expertise is designed to make it easy for customers to identify partners who can deliver quality solutions and minimize risk for their specific needs.
In order to achieve the Oracle Validated Integration with ORACLE Hospitality Hotel Expertise, partners like Conferma Pay must meet a series of qualifiers, including demonstrating that the integration performs as documented.

The integration between Conferma Pay and Oracle Hospitality OPERA, allows Conferma Pay’s secure messaging service, Conferma Pay Connect, to replace traditional email and fax communication with an API call directly into the hotel’s property management system (PMS). The process streamlines the delivery of virtual cards, inserting payment details and billing instruction directly into a hotel’s reservation system, completely bypassing the need for human intervention, removing lengthy processing times for front office staff, and relieving any doubt of mis-keying information. This seamless process enables a frictionless check-in and check-out experience for the guest.

In addition, Conferma Pay Connect retrieves the line item detail from Oracle Hospitality OPERA for each booking where it is used, and once a transaction has been raised against the virtual card, Conferma Pay Connect requests the invoice breakdown through the same API interface, simplifying the invoice reconciliation process. On check-out, a simple click of a button in Oracle Hospitlal OPERA will send out the invoice to a recipient and destination specified by the client and pre-populated by the Connect API.
Until 2016, fax was the only PCI-compliant way to transmit virtual card details – a method that has proved expensive for both the sender and receiver, time consuming, and often encounters many errors. Conferma Pay Connect is a proprietary solution that securely transmits virtual card details based on the hotel’s preferred choice of fax, email or API, and with over 50,000 registered suppliers, 65% of global hotel payment communications are now being sent digitally. This simplifies the transaction process and provides travel managers with real-time data of travel spend.
Simon Barker, CEO of Conferma Pay, added “Customers expect both convenience and security and need to know that their sensitive data will be safe from fraud and not compromised during delivery. With Conferma Pay Connect, payment is securely delivered to a hotel’s existing computer system, excluding the need for email and outdated fax technology. We are pleased to integrate with Oracle Hospitality OPERA, so that they can better meet their customers’ needs.”
“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Hospitality Hotel Expertise gives our customers the confidence that the integration of Conferma Pay Connect is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said David Hicks, vice president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”
