"We are very pleased to partner with Ascert in this new offering" says Steve Donaldson, Vice President of Professional Services for Odyssey.

Project planning, testing solution design, staffing, and implementation services are included as necessary to provide solutions tailored to customer requirements.

Ascert's growing library of standard testing simulators (MasterCard, Visa, SWIFT, American Express, etc.) combined with the expertise available from Odyssey's extensive pool of consultants allow targeted solutions to be developed rapidly and efficiently.

"The partnership between Odyssey and Ascert provides an excellent method of addressing the many requests we've had for a straightforward, cost efficient way of improving the scope and effectiveness of our clients' testing programs," says Andrew Mould, Ascert's Managing Partner.
