Qualified test tools and services enable acquirers to meet growing UnionPay adoption outside of China
January 11, 2018 – FIME has achieved UnionPay International (UPI) qualification for its Savvi Test Platform. With over 160 countries outside of China currently accepting UnionPay, acquirers overseas can now receive local consultancy, testing and certification support from FIME. These tools and services enable acquirers to quickly and cost-effectively complete UPI contact (UAC) and contactless (QuickPass) terminal integration testing.
FIME’s Savvi acquirer and acceptance test platform is now qualified to provide automated testing and certification management for all test cases necessary to complete UPI terminal functional and integration testing. It achieves this by automatically determining applicable test cases, providing test process guidance, retrieving and validating test results, as well as generating and submitting test reports according to UPI’s requirements.
Combined with FIME’s Savvi Test Host, which immediately delivers acquirer host logs to testers, acquirers can perform significantly quicker debug testing. Customers can also benefit from FIME’s network of UPI testing experts and localized consultancy services throughout the process to ensure everything is in order prior to submission of certification results to the test authority.
“As UnionPay assumes an increasingly prominent role in the global payments ecosystem, customer demand for our expertise and testing support is growing rapidly,” comments Alex Chen, Head of Sales APAC at FIME. “Our teams of EMV®* and UPI experts help acquirers with customised, local support and our Savvi tool is fully automated. This comes together to significantly speed up the testing and debug process, and mitigate unnecessary certification delays, ensuring quick, successful and cost-effective projects.”
Already qualified to deliver China UnionPay testing and certification support, the latest UPI accreditation demonstrates FIME’s position as a strategic partner for the scheme and its acquiring banks as it advances into overseas markets.
With a local presence in 20 locations around the world, FIME is the partner of choice to enable international acquirers to support a wide range of domestic and international payment schemes. In addition to the Savvi Test Platform, FIME’s experts offer complete project test services, technical consulting for payment system requirements and terminal-integration training for developers and testers.
