Conduct Automated ATM Testing from Your Desk Using Only Your PC

ATM testing, even with the perfect ATM simulator, can be difficult. You need a way to quickly, accurately, and automatically test your terminal's interaction with your terminal-driving host software. Paragon's FASTest™ can help you overcome these testing challenges with automated test scripts of simulated ATM transactions for NCR, Diebold, Triton, Wincor and Web-based ATMs.

ATM Testing That is Automated, Fast and Thorough

  • Realistically simulate various ATMs, including Diebold, NCR, Triton, Wincor and Web-based ATMs
  • Choose existing test scripts, import ATM transactions, or easily build customized scripts
  • Easily construct test messages—using wizards to populate message fields with valid data (or even invalid data for "what if" scenarios)
  • Test specific card groups including not-on-us, on-us, hot cards and more using existing test card numbers or virtual EMV chip cards with a FASTest Card Database—without requiring the use of plastic cards
  • Quickly validate triple DES encryption
  • Test advanced ATM functions including multiple currency and non-currency dispenses, and cash accepting terminals (known as bunch note acceptors)

FASTest also supports testing with card swipe devices for those times when you need to use real cards.

Reduce Your ATM Test Costs

  • Reduce the number of test ATMs in your lab by configuring ATMulator virtual terminals
  • Change ATMulator’s terminal database to create an ATM with any features you need to test

Easily Recreate and Replay Problems—Until They Are Fixed

  • Simulate any ATM device fault or exception condition
  • Import and replay faults from your production system
  • Use runtime options to control tests, so you can stop a test after a specified number of errors

Increase Testing Productivity

  • Schedule pre-selected tests to run automatically—24/7 and receive an e-mail of results or archive them for later viewing (Optional add-on feature)
  • Share test cases including test groups, scripts, cards, transactions, and messages using FASTest’s export/import utility

Document Your Quality Assurance Testing

  • Print test results to easily document your ATM testing program

Use One Tool for All of Your ATM Testing Needs

Because FASTest's user interface and operation are virtually the same, regardless of the ATM type, you can easily move from testing one device type to another.
