Control Quality Management

Multinational financial service companies such as Mastercard or Visa require from financial card producer that, for each issued chip card or banking secure element, it has successfully completed a serie of tests including tests related to chip card quality communication.

Smartware's testers adapted to personalization environments offer a complete coverage of required tests without sacrificing the overall performance as these testers also allow the pre-personalization of the chip cards.
