GlobeSet Inc. in Austin, TX, a provider of SET (Secure Electronic Transaction) software for OEM solutions, said it has successfully completed interoperability testing between a variety of GlobeSet Payment System and IBM Payment Suite software payment applications.
Testing consisted of each vendor’s software applications performing and
passing basic, advanced and comprehensive interoperability scenarios that
replicated real-world payment card transactions between consumers, merchants,
financial institutions and certificate authorities.
“This industry-first milestone, the most comprehensive in terms of
interoperability testing between two leading SET software vendors, reflects
each company’s commitment to customer needs in the financial and retail
markets,” said Wes Byrne, vice president, product development at GlobeSet.
“Customers require technology that works easily
and seamlessly into their business processes, and GlobeSet and IBM have
jointly delivered on those requirements.”
“Interoperability is a key component in the adoption of SET as a payment
protocol,” said Mark Greene, vice president of Internet payments at IBM.
“IBM’s work with GlobeSet and other companies in the Internet payment arena is
designed to make the transition to SET as seamless as possible for consumers,
merchants and financial institutions.”
