NCR Corporation has won EMV level two accreditation for its EMV for NDC software - part of its Direct Connect (NDC) package - following tests conducted by EMVco.

NCR says the level 2 certification will make it easier for users of the software to obtain card-scheme network approvals.

EMV for NDC, which is compatible with the vendor's OS/2 and Aptra platforms, supports the use of EMV in delivering value-added services such as insurance, stamps, tickets and mobile phone top-ups, as well as traditional transactions. The software can also detect local languages and allows a single smart card to be used to access multiple accounts.

Jim Piggot, vice president for the software and services line of business at NCR's Financial Solutions division, says level 2 compliance means the whole transaction, from the smart card through the ATM software to the payment system, is secure.

"With our APTRA software, card holders will also have access to a wider selection of services, and ATMs will be capable of card-based branding," adds Piggot.
