Integri, a leading provider of test tools and services for payment, ticketing and mobile applications, today announces that HPS, a provider of electronic payment processing solutions active in the Middle East and on the African continent has selected its technology for testing payment host and terminal connections.
To guarantee a correct functioning of debit and credit payment transactions, it is of key importance that data connections between issuing banks and acquirers are running faultless. With an extensive range of Integri test suites, HPS Middle East & Africa customers are now being offered a flexible and robust instrument to verify a correct data exchange as well as compliance to the HPS proprietary protocols SID and PPWM. The tools are built on the field-proven open Platform INQ(r), a test tool development platform enabling easy customization and test script editing.
HPS endorses Integri tools within local banks and acquirers in the Middle East and Africa. The partnership will possibly be extended to a larger region in a next stage.
Abdeslam Alaoui Ismaili, EVP Sales & Customer Care at HPS said: "As a trusted supplier of payments processing software, we have been very demanding throughout the process of selecting a testing business partner, as recommending third party technology can seriously impact our image. However, Integri successfully passed an in-depth quality check and was able to meet our most rigorous requirements."
Jan De Meester, General Manager at Integri commented: "This partnership enables banks to benefit from a complete offering that combines a payment processing solution with the matching off-the-shelf test tool. We see an increasing demand from the industry for such end-to-end packages as it leads to a shortened time-to-deploy and optimizes cost-efficiency."
