Global Softcard Pack


The Global Softcard Pack is an optional upgrade for the Savvi Test Platform. This pack contains Softcards to conduct the terminal Level 3 certifications for the major payment brands.

  • American Express - Global AEIPS contact, Global ExpressPay contactless (including AMEX Quick Chip)
  • China UnionPay - China UnionPay UTVT contact and contactless
  • Diners Club International - Terminal End-to-End (E2E) contact and contactless
  • Discover Network - Terminal End-to-End (E2E) contact and contactless (including DN Quick Chip)

  • PULSE - Terminal End-to-End (E2E) contact

The Softcards are used to simulate test cards either with the Savvi Programmable Cards or the FIME Card Emulator.

The Savvi Programmable Cards are personalized before executing each individual test case of a test plan. Once a programmable test card has been personalized with the selected Softcard it behaves like any FIME contact or contactless physical test card. The card-terminal transaction logs are simply retrieved using Savvi software and a card reader.

The FIME Card Emulator relies on Softcards to simulate test cards on-the-fly when executing each individual test case of a test plan and provide greater automation. The card-terminal transaction logs are automatically retrieved, attached to the corresponding test case and analysed.

The Savvi Global Softcard Pack is a test tool qualified by American Express, Discover for Discover Network, Diners Club International, PULSE, JCB, Mastercard, Visa and UnuinPay for CUP and UPI.

It can be used for certification testing of any type of contact and contactless terminal, POS and ATM such as specified by the payment brand. Brands’ Softcard libraries included in this pack are kept up-to-date automatically thanks to the online automatic software update feature available in the tool. Savvi is able to save card logs in the brands’ format which can then be uploaded in the brand’s official Host Simulator tool or the Savvi Test Host.
