In its ongoing drive to streamline EMV terminal testing, Fime is launching the next generation of its market-leading terminal integration testing and certification solution, Savvi.
By connecting the host simulator and terminal testing, the solution automates the test project for all involved. This will save acquiring host managers and terminal integration testers significant time and money during product development and certification when conducting terminal integration testing for major payment systems.
The innovative new components of the SAVVI solution include:
- Payment systems simulator – SAVVI Test Host – which immediately delivers acquirer host logs to remote testers. This enables instant test result analysis on SAVVI’s Test Platform and removes the need for host administrators to manually search for this data and send to each tester.
- A pocket-sized portable card emulator and reader – FIME Card Emulator – that enables card logs to be captured automatically and instantly uploaded to SAVVI’s Test Platform, which in turn automatically analyzes the results. The tool has been recognized as a 2015 SESAME award finalist.
The complete solution supports terminal integration testing for both contact and contactless payment applications across all major payment systems.
FIME is providing a demonstration of its latest SAVVI testing solution on booth 3 E 019 at the industry trade show CARTES in Paris, November 17-19.
“Testing and certifying EMV terminals is challenging as terminals must accept payments from a number of different payment brands, each with its own technical standards,” comments Xavier Giandominici, FIME Vice President, Americas and Financial Services. “We therefore work closely with all market players, from terminal integration testers to acquirer host managers, to identify ways to optimize the test process, which have been integrated into our next generation SAVVI solution.”
SAVVI is an automated test process and certification management solution for acquiring host managers and terminal integration testers seeking to deploy new or updated EMV payment terminals. It identifies the relevant test cases, provides test process guidance, analyzes and validates test results, offers immediate access to acquirer host logs and generates and submits test reports according to the brands’ requirements. In addition to the FIME Card Emulator, SAVVI also supports physical and programmable test cards. The suite of tools is designed to support the unique needs of individual market players.
