Fime announces Cartes Bancaires has approved PersevalPro Issuer Tool
By Joy Dumasia
Fime launched the PersevalPro Issuer tool and has received additional approval from Groupement des Cartes Bancaires CB. The tool can now be used to test the personalization of payment cards in line with CB’s new CPACE (CPA Contactless Extensions) card personalization specification. CPACE brings consistency across European card schemes to offer a unified experience for cardholders across contact, contactless and mobile payments.
With the new PersevalPro CB CPACE library, Fime’s consultants support French issuers to define and deliver migration strategies for their CB branded projects. Defining and debugging card profiles is essential ahead of in-house pre-validation testing and formal certification in a Fime laboratory and the PersevalPro Quality Control module. Using the same tool throughout can significantly reduce time-to-market and associated costs.
PersevalPro Issuer, the multi-brand Personalization Validation Tool (PVT), fully automates testing projects and helps developers detect, understand and correct errors before submission to the payment brands for card personalization validation. EMV cards and mobile payment application testers can use PersevalPro to instantly retrieve personalization data and tags and detect parameters that are not in line with scheme specifications.
Raphaël Guilley, VP Testing Solutions at Fime, said: “Europe is moving to more unified payments systems, and CPACE is a key part of the process. It can bring greater independence for European issuers, so it is great to see CB leading the way. Our tool and expertise empower issuers to make this step with confidence, relying on official test plans for a range of schemes to fast-track compliance for single and co-branded projects.”
Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Fime had been empanelled as an official certifier by India’s DigiSahamati Foundation (Sahamati) to support the organic and sustainable growth of the country’s open banking account aggregator ecosystem. Fime’s expertise and cloud-based available API testing tool, TrustAPI+, enable innovation and reduce time to market while ensuring the highest quality of services.
