Rabobank licenses Level Four XFS-based ATM testing tool

Dutch bank Rabobank has contracted with Level Four to use the XFS extension of its testing technology, ATM Channel Development Suite, as it moves its cash machine network to an open architecture and prepares for EMV.

Level Four Software released the XFS extension in April this year, in response to industry adoption of open standards ATM architectures.

The XFS extension will support development projects across Rabobank's open architecture ATMs - including migration to EMV - and will automate the testing of its network of more than 3000 ATMs.

The XFS interface will enable the bank to run ATM hardware and software from different suppliers. Rabobank has used the technology to develop a proprietary ATM application that sits alongside Wincor Nixdorf's ProTopas ATM software, running on NCR machines.

Jan Looij, senior project manager at Rabobank, says: "Level Four's ATM Channel Development Suite enables us to automate complex ATM network testing from our live XFS-based software, peripherals and hardware, to the connections with the host system. This will vastly reduce testing cycles and improve time to market of enhancements to ATM functionality."

Martin Macmillan, CEO at Level Four, says: "XFS open architecture has created a fundamental shift in the market for ATM software, with banks no longer tied to their ATM hardware vendors for the software that drives their machines."

The bank is also using Level Four's ATM Simulator and EMV FastTrack products.
