Elavon Makes Payment Certifications Faster and Easier than Ever for Software and Hardware Developers
ATLANTA, Oct. 9, 2018 – Elavon today announced the launch of its self-test platform, which offers payment hardware and software providers an accelerated way to streamline card brand and EMV certifications. The platform significantly reduces final certification time from the typical four weeks process to just 24-48 hours. The platform also saves developers money by eliminating the need to engage third parties.
“The speed at which new technology is transforming the world is at a faster rate than ever, and hence, businesses must keep up by meeting consumer demand at almost the same pace,” said Guy Harris, Elavon’s President of North America and Global Revenue. “Offering developers with a self-service tool that meets this demand is the latest, tangible example of our continued investment to help our partners and customers leverage payments offering to grow their businesses.”
Elavon’s self-test platform reduces the certification effort for developers, as it covers the four major card brands (Mastercard, Visa, AMEX and Discover) in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. This developer-friendly certification platform is comprehensive, addressing all card brands for all devices, including EMV certification.
For more than 25 years, Elavon has been a leader in the payments industry, helping businesses grow and thrive by offering leading eCommerce, mobile, payment terminal and security services to businesses of all sizes. By eliminating the third-party and normalizing the certification process with the self-test platform, Elavon partners have seen a 90 percent reduction in certification time, reducing the overall time in half.
