Visa accredits FIME U.S
Payments testing and consultancy expert, FIME has been qualified to deliver Visa Contactless Payment Specifications (VCPS) Level 2 terminal testing at its San Jose lab. North American terminal vendors can now achieve multiple accreditations from the payment industry’s key international bodies and schemes in a single test session. This reduces certification time and costs with a one-stop shop to certify their point-of-sale (POS) devices and tap to phone.
The accreditation follows FIME’s acquisition of CETECOM U.S.’s payment activities earlier this year. It expands FIME’s existing portfolio of testing services, technical advisory and testing tools to enable U.S. customers to define, design, deliver and test their pioneering products and services.
“With contactless and Tap to Phone payments growing in popularity we’re helping U.S. customers innovate with an eye on time to market and costs. We now have Visa-accredited labs across the U.S., Europe and Asia, meaning we can offer a ‘follow the sun’, always-on service to terminal vendors. This will help the payments ecosystem to move faster in adopting new technologies to meet evolving consumer demands,” comments Stéphanie El Rhomri, Vice President of Testing Services at FIME.
