Headquartered in the United States, our client is one of the world’s top payment processing companies with operations across Latin America, EMEA and APAC. 


The company wished to conduct efficient day-to-day testing traffic from all integrators and merchants who are updating or developing their terminal applications to its standards. It wanted to streamline its certification process by providing one destination for all pre-certification traffic, regardless of the payment scheme.

Our Solution

The company purchased ASTREX to perform as a real-time host simulator to manage the test traffic and to streamline the certification traffic. ASTREX is architected to respond to multiple instances of multiple payment protocols, giving the company a platform that scales seamlessly to meet increasing volumes of testing traffic.

The Result

ASTREX gives the company the capability to configure custom EMV responses from MasterCard, Visa, Discover and Diners Club. With ASTREX, the company is also now able to create transactions to support stress testing, regression testing and baselining of their Base 24 Classic platform. The company has also added Acquirer Systems’ certified D-PAS module to perform end-to-end acquirer testing for Diners Club.
ASTREX has delivered significant savings on infrastructure, resources, and additional licences cost, while helping to streamline and improve the efficiency of the company’s certification process. With ASTREX, the company is able to provide a better quality of service to its merchants and integrators.
