SHAZAM chooses Iliad Solutions for payments testing
SHAZAM, the member-owned debit network, processor and core provider supporting community banks and credit unions across the USA, has chosen Iliad Solutions as its payments testing supplier.
Iliad Solutions’ products and services, used by leading financial institutions around the globe, help to minimize the risk when deploying new payments technology, reducing the costs associated with testing and improving the speed of launching new systems.
After an extensive trial, SHAZAM has licensed Iliad’s dynamic test platform, t3:Switch to assist in the testing of the interoperability of its solutions with a wide range of payment schemes.
The U.S. and Canada continue to be significant growth areas for Iliad Solutions, with its first North America client (a Top 3 USA bank) benefitting from the t3 platform since 2014. Nine years later, Iliad clients include many of the largest banks and payment processors in North America, as well as major core banking providers to the U.S. community bank market.
Anthony Walton, Iliad Solutions CEO commented: “We are delighted to welcome SHAZAM to our growing list of North American clients. Those licensing our flagship payment testing platform, t3 Switch, are able to bring their digital payments and transaction solutions to market quicker and more efficiently via the high-level of automation and configurability the t3 platform provides.”
Walton adds: “SHAZAM is a respected leader and innovator in the payments industry and has been for decades. Having SHAZAM as a client is an honour and further confirms for the marketplace the unique value of Iliad’s t3 testing platform.”
Stephan Thomasee, SHAZAM’s Chief Technology Officer, added: “We are excited to partner with Iliad on their industry-leading payment testing solutions. Our comprehensive trial proved the t3:Switch driven solutions to be a significant step forward in our internal and external client testing capabilities. In addition, the holistic nature and designed flexibility made the Iliad platform a standout choice in the marketplace.”
