ATM test and development software firm Level Four Software is to develop simulation tools for NCR's products and services under the vendor's APTRAxpress partner programme.
London-based Level Four says customers embarking on ATM upgrades to support EMV will benefit from the partnership, which will reduce time to market for new cash machine functionality.
Jim Piggot, vice president of software and services for NCR's financial solutions division, says: "Preparing for EMV and other industry mandates is a resource-intensive process, so financial institutions will see increased benefits from our collaboration."
Level Four's ATM Channel Development Suite enables ATM content to be modified quickly using a graphical interface. Testing is automated by a set of pre-defined simulations.
