Pay.UK and Iliad Solutions support NPA payments testing
Iliad Solutions is pleased to announce the general release of its T3 test and certification platform for New Payments Architecture. The solution is used in precertification mode to underpin the Pay.UK Self Validation Testing. The general release is further enhanced to integrate and simulate the back-end systems that Financial Institutions use to interoperate with NPA. This results in a fully automated end-to-end-solution.
A seamless testing platform is being offered as an option by Iliad so financial institutions wishing to join NPA can onboard safely, securely and self-certify in the testing process.
NPA will be the biggest upgrade UK payment systems have seen in a generation. As such Pay.UK’s testing strategy has been meticulously designed to support the programme ensuring that the NPA framework can be validated across the entire ecosystem.
Iliad’s testing option forms part of an ongoing partnership between Pay.UK and Iliad Solutions with both parties previously collaborating on Faster Payments, and Confirmation of Payee (CoP), the name checking service for UK-based real-time payments.
Anthony Walton, Iliad Solution’s CEO comments: “Pay.UK’s ground breaking payment initiatives have been created by the strength of its internal capabilities and the expertise provided by its chosen third partner partners like Iliad. For over 25 years, Iliad Solutions has been at the forefront of building, implementing and supporting major payment solutions. This experience has allowed us to develop the most comprehensive and resilient testing solutions available in the world today. We are delighted to be supporting Pay.UK once again.”
