Chicago (IL), January 9th, 2015

Galitt, a global trusted leader in the areas of payment systems consulting services, test tools and education, has been confirmed by Visa Inc. as capable of providing the Chip Vendor Enabled Service (CVES) aimed at streamlining the testing and reporting processes for the deployment of EMV-enabled contact chip and contactless NFC acceptance devices in the United States.

Galitt US, as a CVES enabled vendor using Galitt confirmed test tools, will run the mandatory Visa test cases (ADVT, qVSDC DM, CDET), analyze their outcome and submit the results to Visa using the Visa Chip Compliance Reporting Tool (CCRT).

“Streamlining the certification of payment terminals and ATM devices is one of the key challenges of the US EMV migration roadmap” said Gerard De Moura, President and CEO of Galitt US. “The CVES process is part of the Visa response to such requirements and Galitt immediately addressed the corresponding Visa invitation. It has indeed been a constant strategy for Galitt to support Brands’ efforts to automate and streamline testing and certification, and we are proud of this new Visa confirmation.”

Galitt US testing and certification solutions will be presented at the Smart Card Alliance Payment Summit in Salt Lake City (UT) on February 3-5, 2015.
