Acquirer Systems, a global leader in payment testing solutions, is pleased to announce the opening of a new North American office to support its growing customer base in the US and Canada.
The office, which is located in Charlotte, North Carolina, will serve as a hub to support EMV migration in the region.
Acquirer Systems has established its North American base to provide local support to banks, processors and vendors in the North American market. New Visa and MasterCard mandates means the US payments industry faces the challenge of migrating over 1 billion credit and debit cards to EMV chip and contactless standards, along with the associated payments infrastructure. Many banks are also seeking to replace their core switching systems as leading platforms are reaching the end of their lifecycles.
John Kempisty, MD, North America, for Acquirer Systems said "I'm excited that Acquirer Systems has made this commitment to the North American market given the range of capabilities the company has to solve the problems US customers face in migrating to these new standards and platforms". Acquirer Systems offers an innovative transaction-based testing approach that gives customers the ability to emulate and test complex end-to-end EMV chip environments, allowing early identification of issues and saving money and time during implementation.
Fergal Molloy, CEO, Acquirer Systems said, "We are already a trusted partner to many US clients including First Data and Bank of America and this is a very exiting phase in Acquirer System's growth. We bring global experience to the US market in helping our customers to transition from magstripe to EMV. Our US office will help us to bring our world-class testing solutions to the North American market".
