Acquirer and acceptance test platform

Terminal integration certification

Acquirers and merchants who deploy new EMV payment terminals must test and certify their terminals according to brand test requirements and processes. It can be a challenging and time consuming task, especially when the project is conducted manually. FIME has created the Savvi Test Platform, an automated test process and certification management tool, which significantly reduces the overall time needed to successfully complete the terminal-integration certification testing required for all brands.

Simplify your entire process certification

Savvi simplifies your entire certification project. It determines applicable test cases, provides test process guidance, retrieves and validates test results (card and host logs). It generates and submits test reports according to the brand’s requirements. Savvi also acts as a tutorial and provides the necessary and up-to-date information to help testers perform each test without having to refer to a specification or a test plan document.


Savvi is built around three main components, test libraries, Softcard libraries and the test media. Test libraries perform all the test functions for a specific brand test, Softcard libraries contain the test inputs (card images) for a specific brand test and the test media is programmable test cards and physical test cards. Test case functionality is identical on all media, so testers are free to choose the media that best meets their need. Programmable test cards are personalised from a Softcard library prior to conducting each test case, while physical test cards are ready for use.

What's in the box?

Savvi is delivered in a suitcase with a dual-interface PC/SC card reader and comes with the test libraries for global brands (American Express, MasterCard and Visa).

Supplementary libraries for domestic brands such as ATH, DNA and Troy are also available.
