Initiative significantly reduces certification costs for terminal manufacturers and kernel developers
FIME announces that its test laboratories in France and Taiwan are now eligible to support terminal manufacturers and kernel developers as part of the UnionPay QuickPass sponsorship program. By significantly subsidizing certification costs, the program is working to drive adoption of UnionPay QuickPass.
“We are supporting international vendors with a range of consultancy and certification services and those services just became more accessible,” comments Alex Chen, Business Director Asia Pacific at FIME. “As the first laboratory outside mainland China to participate in the sponsorship program we look forward to continuing our strong and productive relationship with UnionPay, and helping international vendors to get certified.”
Zhaoyu Han, Product Manager at UnionPay International adds: “Increased global acceptance is key to our expansion strategy and partners like FIME are central to this process. This sponsorship program is a significant opportunity for international vendors, enabling them to meet market demand for UnionPay services with reduced costs and increased convenience.”
The EVAL test tool, which is used by FIME’s laboratories for UnionPay product certification, is also available to terminal manufacturers and kernel developers to support product development. Using the tool throughout product development ensures a smooth formal approval process, avoiding the costly and time-consuming delays that can occur when an error is identified at the final stage.
FIME’s consultancy services, EVAL test tool and laboratory services offer terminal manufacturers a complete certification portfolio, supporting them in achieving compliance to a comprehensive list of international and domestic payment schemes.
