I had the opportunity to attend and speak at the BAI Payments Connect conference in San Diego last week. It was fast paced and exciting. The BAI folks did a great job with the facilities and the catering was impeccable. Good food at a conference is hard to come by, after all.
The fraud prevention, risk scoring and authentication technologies ... read more
A number of organizations around the world have made the moves required to revolutionize their approach to testing in the financial services industry. The case studies below come from members of the testing revolution.
Case Study #1
Top five international card network that certifies global partners and vendors
A large card network was looking for a solution to better manage their certification process. They required the ability to easily monitor pre-certification testing results; to quickly change and deploy test scripts to downstream partners and vendors; and to give their users the ability to test unattended, 24/7.
Using revolutionary testing, this network is now catching errors prior to certification saving them and their partners’ time and money. Centralizing the application of updates and changes provides the network simplified administration of their testing worldwide.
Case Study #2
A top five international bank
With resources in multiple countries, this larger international bank needed a solution that would centralize testing and allow resources to access the testing environment anytime, anywhere from any browser.
Using revolutionary testing, the bank was able to allow its more than 500 users in 50 countries to run tests within a single system through their web browsers. Users have their own test cards and can share cards as needed. This approach allows the bank to act as an issuer or an acquirer, running auto-reply scripts to simulate authorization.
Case Study #3
A major merchant acquirer
A large merchant acquirer needed to improve certification time for their downstream customers.
Using revolutionary testing methods, the acquirer delivered a material improvement in certification times to their customers. Their approach lowered the cost of developing and updating formats with its extensible platform. Instead of parsing messages by hand, certification analysts use parsed messages spending less time on routine tasks and focusing on understanding why customers may be having challenges with certification.
Case Study #4
A leading international processor and outsourcer for ePayments
A leading ePayment processor wanted a centralized testing solution that would allow them to more efficiently conduct functional, regression and certification testing while improving the quality of their code.
Code quality and stability has improved. The time required for testing has been reduced. Clients are able to analyze the results of test cases then identify and correct errors without any significant involvement by processor’s test engineers.
