Leisure Interactive LLC, the developer of Hercules software, and Merchants’ Choice Payment Solutions (MCPS) for Campgrounds, a credit/debit card provider sponsored by Woodforest National Bank, have announced a joint marketing agreement which will provide a full service payment processing system integrated with its reservation processing software.

By integrating directly with MCPS for Campgrounds, campground operators will be able to streamline the process of credit card processing to their financial institutions, according to a news release.

“This solution provides an end to end solution for campgrounds who want to take advantage of a fully integrated online and front office reservation management system,” said Gary Pace, president/CEO of Leisure Interactive. “In addition to streamlining the payment processing within Hercules, campgrounds are assured of a fully PCI compliant system which conforms to Visa rules and reduces risk for the campground operator.”

The solution provides campground operators a cost effective option for both reservation management and payment processing. Campground owners will be able to reduce keystrokes and manual entries while efficiently manage the credit card processing of their business.

Art Lieberman, president of MCPS for Campgrounds, is excited to be working with Leisure Interactive. “This gives us the unique opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the most respected reservation system in the campground industry. We look forward to a long and prosperous association with them.”

Pace said, “We are pleased to partner with MCPS to expand our solution offerings to campgrounds. MCPS for Campgrounds’ continued presence in the campground industry assures us that our clients will be serviced well and treated fairly.”
