GFG Group says the deployment of its FINSim testing tool at Artajasa, Indonesia’s leading electronic payment services network, is a strategic win.
“Artajasa is a major player in the Southeast Asian region, where we are rapidly building momentum with our entire solution set, encompassing cards, mobile and now testing,” says Wayne Robinson, GFG senior vice president of marketing and sales.
Artajasa established the first shared ATM network in Indonesia, which now has 30,000 terminals owned by more than 75 banks.
Application development manager Handiawan Sujana says the key benefits FINSim bring to Artajasa include a fully automated payment system and unit testing across the network, shortened testing cycles for new functionality and codes, and increased efficiency.
“We can build and test a variety of ATM configurations and simulate a range of terminal conditions quickly and easily,” he says.
“We don’t need physical terminals and cards, meaning we can streamline everything we do in terms of the place, the time and test activities.”
The ATM Bersana network, as it is known, is incorporated in the Asia Payment Network, enabling customers to conduct transactions in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Artajasa plans to extend its cross-border ATM network to include more ASEAN countries, which host large numbers of Indonesian workers and students.
Artajasa also uses FINSim to automate routine testing, which cuts weeks off the repetitive effort associated with manual testing.
