:: NFC is coming, are you ready? :: ISO8583-1993 Demo :: Stress testing with BP-Sim ::


 Dear Recipient,

To begin with, thank you all for providing very useful feedback on our BP-Sim Apacs Demo and BP-Tools applications. The surge of responses was unexpected, and gave us some great validation on what we are doing and many suggestions on how to bring even more value to our customers.

In our last newsletter I promised that we would be releasing an updated BP-Tools with EMV.  We have done so, and this product reflects many of your comments, which should make it more useful for everyone.  Due to many requests on our ISO8583 module, we decided to provide its demo version with unlocked TPS limits, so enjoy!

Thank you for your loyalty during the last month and please see more details on our products and articles below.

Best Regards,

Veronika Bilek
