Paragon Application Systems, the leading global provider of ATM and EFT simulation, configuration and testing tools, today announced the licensing of its ATMulator Plus and FASTest software to Information Technology, Inc. (ITI), a leading core software and services solutions provider to financial institutions, and a unit of Fiserv, Inc. (Nasdaq: FISV)
ITI will use Paragon's software to optimize quality control of ATM and EFT products they support.
"Paragon tools provide a user-friendly interface to simulate any ATM or EFT message, and the comparison and reporting tools enable us to identify discrepancies easily and efficiently," says Kent E. White, ITI Senior Quality Control Manger. "Use of the tools has greatly decreased development time, plus we're able to create new ATM switch interfaces with fewer programming challenges."
ITI uses Paragon's ATMulator Plus and FASTest products to conduct unit and regression testing of any ATM changes, new ATM program development, and EFT switch interface development. ATMulator Plus provides a desktop virtual ATM interface enabling ITI to see what customers see and do what customers do at their Diebold, NCR or Wincor ATMs. With ATMulator Plus, ITI can simulate and test virtually any ATM condition or device fault. With Paragon's Professional FASTest, ITI has the freedom to customize EFT message formats in order to test EFT interfaces between their customers and various host systems.
"We're pleased to have the opportunity to work with ITI and enhance their competitiveness through the Paragon WorkSmart product suite," says Harold Pruitt, Account Manager for Paragon Application Systems. "ITI personnel are committed to fully using Paragon products, including many advanced features, in order to maximize testing effectiveness and efficiency."
"Initial indicators demonstrate that Paragon's ATMulator Plus and FASTest will be excellent tools to enhance ITI's ability to provide even higher quality ATM application products and service to our clients," adds White. "We appreciate the fact that Paragon has treated ITI as a valued partner and not just another client using their software."
