Paragon Application Systems Completes MasterCard EMV Accreditation Program

1 August 2013

Paragon Application Systems, the leading, independent provider of ePayment testing solutions, is pleased to announce that it has completed the MasterCard Third-Party Accreditation Program and is ready to provide guidance on the impact of EMV to financial institutions who are preparing to implement the technology for their cardholders and merchants.

MasterCard developed the Third-Party Accreditation Program to help financial institutions identify suppliers with the expertise to support their adoption of contact and contactless EMV programs. Participants attend intensive EMV training from MasterCard and have their EMV training materials reviewed and approved by MasterCard.

“We are very pleased to be the first US-based company to have earned this formal accreditation from MasterCard,” says Gary Kirk, President of Paragon Application Systems. “It not only reflects the high level of knowledge and expertise of our staff, but also confirms our commitment to continue to be a trusted partner for financial institutions as they migrate to chip. The combination of this expertise with our industry-leading solutions uniquely positions us to fulfill that role.”
