First American Payment Systems, a leader in payments, and UL Transaction Security have partnered together to offer ASTREX, a real-time payments simulator, to reduce development time and streamline EMV validation for ISVs and VARs. Paired with First American’s semi-integrated EMV solution, the testing environment will ease the burden of EMV development and validation, resulting in a faster time to market.

ASTREX provides a comprehensive, end-to-end testing environment for the semi-integrated EMV product to ensure the success of EMV payment processes in a variety of test scenarios before the validation phase. The testing and validation tool will reduce development, cost and time to market. VARs and ISVs can feel confident that their EMV solution will be deployed with minimal risk and quickly to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

“For ISVs and VARs, this is an excellent resource to be able to take the guesswork out of EMV validation and deploy it quickly using our semi-integrated EMV solution,” says Bill Lodes, First American’s EVP of ISV Strategy. “We have a team of experts and top-notch technology when it comes to EMV and payment solutions allowing our partners to focus on what they do best – serving their customers. With our semi-integrated EMV solution, our partners will get access to ASTREX as well as our expert implementation services team who will provide regular support to ensure the testing and validation happens quickly and correctly. We are proud to be a one-stop shop for ISVs and VARs when it comes to EMV and payment solutions so that they can differentiate themselves in the market with advanced payment solutions.”

“We are delighted that First American Payment Systems has chosen our ASTREX Payments Simulation Platform,” says Fergal Molloy, CEO UL Ireland. “ASTREX will help streamline the challenging EMV payments landscape for ISOs and VARs, who are often delegated the responsibility of delivering their merchant customer conversion to EMV, and enable an accelerated path for quick deployment of EMV solutions.”
