Software Updates

In order to remain up to date with the latest requirements from EMV and the payment scheme operators, as well to take advantage of Barnes’ ongoing development, the software must be kept up to date.

We only support the most current software. It is essential to update your tool to the latest version to ensure your cards are tested against the latest standards/specifications.

It has always been our policy to keep in touch with our customers to ensure they receive the best possible support and notification of the latest software upgrades. To facilitate this task, we ask that a few details be entered in the form below.
