Ascert, an innovator in testing software technologies with its VersaTest product line, continues to expand its certification and testing capabilities to meet changing payment technologies by partnering with Cashware. Cashware, headquartered in Madrid, Spain, specializes in the design and development of self-service ATM / kiosk applications, and their integration with different financial institutions' host applications and operating systems.
The strategic positioning of these two technology leaders allows companies to realize the full benefits of testing all aspects of ATM transaction processing, from the consumer interface to the complete flow of messages through the transaction networks. “This integrated solution allows linkage of ATM front-end with issuer back-end systems to allow real end-to-end automation of ATM testing in a way that has not been possible previously”, said Mike Wainwright, Business Development Director, Ascert EMEA.
Early customer implementations of the combined testing technologies, using VersaTest Automator to control Cashware’s ATMirage product and back end issuer applications in the same test script, have shown greater efficiencies in test data analysis and time saving benefits through shared analytical engines and connective interface. “We trust this strong alliance will trigger new business opportunities for both companies. As a result of the integration of our products we are able to provide a powerful and complete testing solution to our customers”, said Galia Gomez, CEO, Cashware.
Used by QA testing and development groups in the payments industry to ensure the efficacy of transaction messaging for over 20 years, Ascert and Cashware continue to lead the evolution of testing, utilizing the latest in market technologies and combined proprietary testing tools.
