Services: We cannot and will not deny our origins - feel the difference!

Of course, we are a software vendor, but with strong roots in service and consulting. And that makes us somehow different, at least that’s what our customers say.

Industry coLLABORAtion
We are passionate about providing the best possible solutions and services to our customers.

This requires focus on our strengths and on our core competencies.
But even more important, is to be aware of the areas where we lack expertise when partners are able to fill the gap and complement our offering.

We partner with both software companies as well as with consulting companies.
Some examples are listed below:

COLLABORATION

Business-Logics

Business-Logics is one of the leading manufacturers of EBICS-based electronic banking systems in the world (EBICS: Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard).

Due to this cooperation we are able to offer a professional EBICS solution to our clients which is seamlessly embedded within our test solution.

COLLABORATION

msgGillardon

msgGillardon is a software and consulting company for the banking industry. msgGillardon offers business consulting, standard and individual developments as well as system integration from a single source and realizes successful projects with data centers and financial service providers of all sizes with many years of industry and IT expertise.

Due to partnerships with consulting companies such as msgGillardon, we are able to provide our customers with well-trained experts during an introduction phase.  Don’t be misled, implementing our testing solutions is not a big issue. This usually takes a couple days, sometimes even only a couple of hours.

But it’s not uncommon that customers request some kind of ‘training on the job’ phase. During such a phase trained and experienced experts complement already existing test cases with customized ones according to particular needs.

COLLABORATION
