RS Software, Paragon Application Systems Partner to Meet Demand for Next Generation Testing Solution
Companies join to deliver solutions that address complexities of payments landscape
HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C., Jan. 11, 2017 – Paragon Application Systems (Paragon), the financial services industry’s leading provider of next generation testing solutions, today announced that it has partnered with RS Software India Limited, a provider of digital payment technology solutions that builds payment infrastructure for countries all across the globe and helps businesses transition from legacy to modern e-payment systems. The alliance addresses the growing demand for testing solutions that provide better automation and more comprehensive code coverage, enabling financial services providers to avoid the hefty cost and risk associated with legacy testing tools.
Paragon provides a suite of testing solutions that automates and virtualizes end-to-end testing of payment systems and ATM networks. These solutions equip organizations to deploy a testing platform that optimizes existing legacy and digital testing assets and frees testing professionals from manual, repetitive tasks. RS Software’s expertise in deploying solutions within high performance, high availability networks will enhance Paragon solutions by adding the knowledge and support required to address specific needs.
“The payments landscape has grown increasingly more complex over the past decade,” said Jim Perry, CEO of Paragon. “A steep increase in the number and variety of endpoints, an expanding number of consumer devices and payment apps, the rising expectation of ‘always-on’ availability and increased levels of regulatory scrutiny have all contributed to that fact. However, the testing methodologies used to ensure that these e-payment systems remain reliable have not kept pace with these changes, creating a glaring discrepancy that we aim to correct. ”
The ongoing cost pressures and accompanying expectation to do more with less have been the primary contributors to the testing challenges financial services providers face. Organizations find themselves addressing more intricate payments testing needs with higher stakes and a leaner workforce. In addition, rapid innovation and competitive pressures in the marketplace are driving the need to deliver new products and services more quickly and with higher quality.
Raj Jain, chairman of RS Software, said, “Testing is critical to all software applications, and even more so for payments that impact consumers’ everyday lives. The majority of payments testing today involves quality assurance staff manually running isolated tests using desktop tools located in physical labs. Because this manual method forces testers to conduct a wide array of tests in an attempt to locate critical errors – something akin to shooting in the dark at times – often only around 20 percent or less of the desired scenarios are actually tested, leaving entirely too much to chance. With our partnership with Paragon, we will strive to increase code coverage and improve the way testing is conducted for organizations across the globe. ”
