How we can help you?
To minimize your certification time with the acquirer or processor, pre-certification is highly recommended. A successful pre-certification process provided by us will enable you to prepare your environment in the most optimal conditions and resolve issues quickly. It will enable a fast and successful go-to-market and facilitating a smoother and compliant formal brand certification for Terminal Integration Testing. Our experts help you streamline your project time frame, either on your premises or off-site, in our certification laboratory. We have worked on flexibility, collaborative models with payment brands. Within all current business models, we strive to act as a reliable partner. It will result in a win-win model for both companies.
A typical example of our pre-certification services includes:
• Setting up the test environment
• Accredited test solutions
• Test execution
• Technical Support
• Log Analysis
• Validation report
Formal Brand Certification
Our fully automated Working tool supports both contacts and contactless EMV payment terminals. It works through Programmable test cards log the card-terminal data exchange automatically so no spying hardware is required. The test solution contains brand certification test scripts and step-by-step user guidance during test execution. The tool reads the card-terminal log and automatically validates the data exchange. It imports the Host Simulator log and automatically validates the acquirer host data exchanges.Then, reports can be generated in the brand’s official formats, ready to apply for the formal certification process.
Host Simulation Tools
The test tool allows the execution of complete brand-defined test scripts without connection to the acquirer processor environment or brand network host — these are the same test scripts as used during brand certification. Pre-certification test suites allow rapid testing and retesting during terminal development before the often expensive and difficult-to-plan full brand certification. Terminals that have gone through pre-certification often require only one brand certification cycle as the payment brand network testing rules have already been applied. For Brand Certification, the live Acquirer Processor Host needs to be used, in this case only the Brand Network is simulated. The tool allows execution of the complete brand-defined test scripts without connection to the actual brand network.
