Testimonials

What do our past and existing customers say?

Having worked with organisations all over the world, we ensure that the service they receive from our team is of the highest standard. Take a look below to see what our customers have to say about working with us, along with our magnetic stripe and card chip testing solutions and our training and consultancy services.

  • "We've been using CPT 3000v3 since 2009, mainly for validating the data personalised on the chip before sending it for certification, as well as to analyse the correct behaviour of the card in different acceptance environments and circumstances. It was very easy to set up any acceptance situation (the host simulator is a very useful feature!), then simulate different cases and evaluate potential problems. The tool is reliable, you can easily understand the concept and how to use it."

  • "As a manufacturer of magnetic stripe under the CFC brand name we need to be looking at our product in exactly the same way as our customers are doing; as it became apparent that the Barnes tester was increasingly becoming the standard mag tester of choice around the world it was an easy decision to purchase one from Barnes for our own in-house process control tests."

  • "I have used the CAT 3000v3CL; it is a great product, easy to use and useful for detailed testing for contact and contactless cards. Host simulation is a great feature and you can test APDUs using the Engineering Tool. It's an all in one!"

  • "As an innovator of new sustainable and environmentally sound substrates in a very traditional and slow moving PVC industry, we needed a reliable way to prove to customers and partners that our wood cards performed just like PVC cards and according to all ISO standards. The choice was simple and it fell on Barnes!"

  • "Barnes International is a well recognised brand on today's global market and visiting our clients I've seen them appreciating CPT as an invaluable product with lots of extraordinary knowledge behind it. While being primarily dedicated to card validation and testing, its ability to transfer EMV knowledge is being widely appreciated by our software developers every day."

    EFTlab, Australia
  • "We know the CPT3000v3CL tool from the advice of our main supplier of EMV cards, Gemalto. This tool is very useful because it guarantees that the personalised cards by PLANAD (VISA, Mastercard PURE white label) comply with the agreed specifications. It is, in fact, a guarantee that our service is properly performed. Today, we use Barnes test tools every time we finish any card production. We are very satisfied with the CPT test tool and we also participated in an EMV Training course organised by Barnes in order to deepen our knowledge."

  • "Cardel purchased a Barnes Revo test machine to supplement and enhance existing testing ability for our prelaid mag stripe on overlay production. The equipment is used by our production operators and R&D technicians continually every day for checking the quality of our mag stripe materials and for batch release testing of our magnetic stripe prelaid overlay products. Ease of use is, in my opinion, best in the market and the Quality and performance of the machine is consistent. The ability to test a range of materials without having to adjust the head height or pressure is particularly beneficial."
