Tsys and Acquirer partner to cut EMV certification time

30 July 2015  |  1998 views  |  0 Source: TSYS

TSYS (TSS) and Acquirer Systems today announced the launch of ASTREX, a new testing solution that simplifies the EMV certification process for both Value-Added Resellers (VARs)and Integrated Software Vendors(ISVs).

Developers can now use a streamlined approach to integrate with TSYS’ current testing environment, where ASTREX provides a robust card brand simulation tool with real-time results. The efficient testing functionality cuts EMV certification time in half.

As an EMV payments simulation platform, developers can test a full range of transactions and network scenarios. This powerful and comprehensive testing solution eliminates complex integration steps with its scalability, and also reduces overall EMV implementation costs. ASTREX gives VARs and ISVs the peace of mind that their POS solutions will qualify for EMV certification on the first attempt.

“By using our simulator tool, VARs and ISVs can gain an edge on the competition by bringing powerful and efficient EMV solutions to market faster,” said Craig Ludwig, head of product for TSYS’ Merchant Services segment. “This not only allows them to easily meet the rapidly approaching October 1 EMV liability shift date, but also affords them the opportunity to offer EMV support to their merchants in an expedited timeframe — increasing the quality of their clients’ overall experience.”

The TSYS and Acquirer Systems solution provides VARs and ISVs with a sustainable method of validating their payments ecosystems through tests conducted from a familiar, easy-to-use workspace that requires no further password management or secondary login information. VARs and ISVs will receive robust support from the TSYS Developer Services team – both during and after the integration – to further reduce overall EMV implementation costs.

“We have worked with TSYS to help eliminate the complexities of migrating to EMV,” stated Fergal Molloy, chief executive officer of Acquirer Systems. “ASTREX will simulate all connected debit and credit card brand networks and provide real-time responses at any time of day, allowing VARs and ISVs to complete their testing and validation at a time that best suits their needs.”
