The Australian Payments Network has selected Unifits’ Test Portal to emulate the behaviour and business rules of the ISO 20022 payment message flows according to the High Value Clearing System (HVCS) specifications.
An Industry Testing Working Group (ITWG) was formed to initially develop the Industry Test Strategy and Transition to Live Plan. The Working Group has proposed to explore options for the provision of an Emulator Tool for Participants use during the Industry Testing Phase. Over the past few months, the Australian Payments Network has been working with the Industry Testing Working Group (ITWG) to conduct a formal RFI and evaluation process to review potential solutions to find the best solution to meet the testing requirements.
In November 2021, the Steering Committee approved the ITWG’s recommendation to proceed with Unifits, a European-based company with extensive experience in ISO 20022 testing solutions. Their Test Portal (the Emulator) simplifies testing related to ISO 20022 and covers validation and creation of messages according to the HVCS specifications, ensuring all Participants are testing to the same messaging standards. The Unifits Test Portal was ready for use in a very short time and is already very much appreciated by the participants.
