FIME has enhanced its SAVVI test tool to enable Visa terminal integration test results to be automated into a format which, for the first time, can be submitted directly online to Visa. This new functionality, which has been tested and endorsed by Elavon, a leader in payment processes, will speed up the testing process for acquirers as well as eliminate human error when inputting and filing results manually.
The enhancement facilitates the direct upload and online submission of automated results generated for the Visa Acquirer Device Validation Toolkit (ADVT). Visa’s online system – the Visa Chip Compliance Reporting Tool (CCRT) – has previously required all test results to be manually inputted and submitted. This process can be time intensive and vulnerable to human error.
Vincent Poty, Head of Strategy and Corporate Development at FIME, comments: “The CCRT enables chip acquirers and their processors to complete and submit the mandatory terminal compliance reports via a globally available online system. The ability to produce an automatic report in a format that can be directly uploaded onto the CCRT system is a significant advancement that optimises efficiencies in the testing process. In turn, this will enable Visa’s stakeholders to bring products to market more quickly.”
FIME’s SAVVI tool conducts the integration tests required for the certification of any kind of contact and contactless terminal by Visa. “SAVVI analyses the ability of a payment terminal to integrate successfully in the marketplace,” concludes Vincent. “The new enhancements not only allow SAVVI to automate the required Visa terminal test results into a loadable format, but also provide it in a readable layout that makes it easier to identify where any bugs are that may need fixing.”
