FIS launches test solution for real-time payments systems
FIS has introduced a test solution to help banks, payment service providers and clearing houses introduce and improve testing as they move to real-time payments systems.
According to a press release, the solution enables the validation of updated or recently installed real-time systems, ensures that functionalities remain accurate and verifies that added features perform as expected.
The tool, built on field-proven test technology, runs predefined or custom test cases in an automated way to avoid human errors, move faster and run or rerun tests whenever required, the release said.
Additionally, the solution can emulate elements of the payment chain that are scarce or not available for testing purposes. For instance, the solution mirrors connected banks, clearing houses or real-time accounting systems, making these useful as sparring partners for sending and receiving payment transaction data.
Key functionalities include:
- payment generation and validation;
- cross-checks of payments, incoming and outgoing;
- service virtualization;
- automation capabilities; and
