Risk Management Testing

Simplify and accelerate the testing of your risk infrastructure by simulating and testing specific components in isolation, stress testing to ensure system capability, validating new rules and minimizing time and resources.

In today’s rapidly changing fraud environment, it’s important to simulate the production setting for risk management before implementation. Organizations need an efficient solution that enables testing with minimal time and resources, while providing solid validation of new rules.

ACI Payment Testing simulates the Proactive Risk Manager Interface Process (PIP), scoring engine, authorization processor and the Online Extract Interface (OEI) process. Each can be simulated independently or combined together to gain all the benefits of a full tailored end-to-end test environment. It makes the testing process easier and quicker, whether the goal is to validate a rule, test performance, or test a specific Proactive Risk Manager component.

ATM Simulation

Leverage a powerful set of “At an ATM” simulators to perform configuration, solution and performance testing of your ATM fleet. ACI Payment Testing allows multi-vendor ATM simulations, covering the testing and simulation needs for an entire network of ATMs, regardless of their brand. Powerful functionality allows customers to simulate the exact configuration of their ATMs, including hardware, supplies and fitness data, and security settings.

Complex testing scenarios are usually very difficult and very expensive to execute. With the use of ACI Payment Testing’s ATM simulators, the task becomes much more manageable, less time consuming, and more importantly, cheaper.

Testing for Payment Engines

ACI Payment Testing has been designed, developed and used internally by ACI Worldwide for ACI payment engines.

Testing and identifying errors in code at the earliest possible stage is critical to the success of financial systems in production environments. ASSET simplifies and automates the complex process of testing to ensure successful implementations, upgrades and software updates for ACI payment engines.
