FIME today announces that its Global test tool is qualified for MasterCard cloud-based payment (MCBP) mobile application testing. Mobile payment solution providers and payment issuers can now validate the functional compliance of their host card emulation (HCE) mobile payments solutions against MCBP Specifications prior to the formal certification stage, reducing product time to market.
With FIME’s testing laboratories delivering MCBP functional testing services, solution providers and issuers can benefit from working with a single, specialist partner, from the inception of a solution, right through to launch. Following laboratory certification, the Global test tool can also be used to self-evaluate updates to the application. This accelerates the application development lifecycle, reduces certification costs and enables applications to evolve more freely.
MCBP Specifications create a foundation for rapid global deployments of mobile payment services. The approach simplifies and speeds the deployment process of contactless mobile offerings for card-issuing financial institutions and other solution providers.
“FIME works with developers and issuers to both accelerate time to market and validate functionality. We do this by offering the broadest range of consulting, mobile payment testing and certification services. These services come together to facilitate the efficient design, development and launch of products and services,” comments Christian Raccuglia, Marketing Manager, Mobile Payments & Biometrics, at FIME.
