Argotechno to offer Galitt payment system testing tools in Brazil
Payment services consultancy Argotechno will offer a complete range of simulation tools developed by electronic transaction security firm Galitt to the Brazilian market, under a distribution agreement announced by the companies. The tools enable control and validation of personalization for contact and contactless cards, among other transactional systems.
Galitt’s testing software, including KaNest simulators and VisuCard products will be sold and supported by Argotechno to facilitate testing and certification of smart cards, POS terminals, mobile devices, payment networks, and hosts.
“Argotechno offers secure transactions solutions, testing and certification services for the payment and correlated industries such as transport and mobile, resulting in a high level of customer satisfaction,” says Alex Gama, Chief Operating Officer at Argotechno. “Our partnership provides invaluable teamwork between Argotechno’s and Galitt’s Teams and leverages opportunities where both companies can act together to achieve customers’ needs. In order to meet the dynamic demands of our customers we keep strategic partnerships with world leading secure transaction technology companies, a field where Galitt is very well positioned and empowers our mutual cooperation.”
KeNest simulators can be customized to validate messages and interfaces between transactional systems, such as card processing systems, while KaNest-ICC simulators test smart cards and the devices which accept them, and are recognized as a certification tool by major international card schemes, including EMVco, American Express, Discover Financial Services, Visa, and Mastercard. KaNest-File allow users to test and validate file processing, and VisuCard products validate the personalization of contact and contactless cards, and implement the testing plans provided by international brands, according to the announcement. These capabilities could be utilized by card schemes seeking to extend trials of biometric payment cards to Latin America.
“We are very pleased of partnering Argotechno in the Brazil market,” comments Galitt Marketing Director of Testing Solutions François Inglebert. “They will leverage the use of our tools on transactional and payment systems in this very active country, due to their high business knowledge of this market and their recognized technical expertise.”
