Ensuring that the experience the customer has with the ATM application is error free ensures a free and accurate flow of information from A to Z.

Ascert, an innovator in automated-testing software technology with its VersaTest product line, announces expanded test capabilities for ATM interface and operability testing. In partnership with Cashware, Ascert has combined back-end and user interface ATM testing to deliver an automated end-to-end ATM testing solution. Using Ascert’s powerful VersaTest technology for message processing and network / host simulation while running the actual ATM application within Cashware’s ATMirage, financial institutions can now test all aspects of ATM operation.

“We’re very pleased to add enhanced testing capabilities for the ATM,” says Rob Walker, Managing Partner at Ascert. “We've added user interface testing to our significant capabilities in back-end message testing. We recognize that the ATM is still a primary point of interaction between a bank and its customers, and it represents a significant point of commerce. Ensuring accuracy of the transaction is of paramount importance, but how the banks’ customers interact with the ATM is of equal importance. Ensuring that the experience the customer has with the ATM application is error free ensures a free and accurate flow of information from A to Z.”

The solution allows ATM & kiosk applications adhering to the CEN/XFS, J/XFS or Xpeak standards to be tested without the need for physical hardware. The entire end-to-end tests, that can include payments network and host components, are orchestrated through the VersaTest Automator platform. Full Quality Center integration is also available, extending the new testing capabilities deeper into the enterprise.

Ascert and Cashware will be demonstrating this powerful testing solution at the ATMIA conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, February 17 – 19, 2015 at Caesars Palace.
