EVAL 4dev

Level 2 payment terminal kernel fully automated testing

Bring your products to market quickly and efficiently

The payment terminal market is moving fast. Kernel, mPOS and terminal developers need to bring their solutions to market quickly to ensure seamless contact and contactless transactions, and security for end-users.

Bringing these products to market efficiently, quickly and cost-effectively is a key challenge for the industry, and reducing lead time for development projects gives vendors a competitive edge.

Fully-automated Level 2 kernel cloud-based testing

EVAL 4dev is a fully automated cloud-based testing service which enables terminal and mPOS kernel developers to validate Level 2 payment kernels functionalities anytime, anywhere.

EVAL 4dev confirms your payment kernels are align with the latest industry specifications from the early development stage, no need to wait after hardware integration to validate the kernel development results. This shorten project time and costs by allowing development teams to ensure their solution is compliant throughout the pre-certification stage, reducing the risk of failure during formal certification testing.
