Financial Institutions and Card Issuers

Introduce payment innovation with confidence

Barnes has been working with banks and card issuers globally for over 27 years. We have supported the migration of EMV as it has progressed across the globe and have a team in place to support current developments worldwide, particularly in the Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.

Testing prior to certification improves efficiency of EMV card issuance

Our customers select our Test Tools as they provide them with confidence and certainty as they develop new EMV contact, contactless and mobile payment applications.
The tools are used prior to putting products forward for formal payment scheme certification, which can otherwise consume a lot of time and budget if products are not pre-tested.

We work closely with the Payment Schemes and therefore our test tools are always aligned to the latest payment scheme specifications. Barnes customers can at any time download the latest test scripts from our website. We also develop bespoke testing systems for Issuers, Payment Schemes and Laboratories.
