Paragon Application Systems

Over the past 50 years, ATMs have evolved from being simple cash dispensers to become a critical channel for delivering value-added information and services. At the same time, consumer expectations have grown far beyond cash withdrawals and balance inquiries to include a wide range of personalized financial services that are evolving toward mobile and contactless access. Developing and testing products and services for the ATM channel is more complicated and challenging than ever. 

Since 1994, Paragon Application Systems has been helping our clients innovate and succeed by providing world-class testing solutions that promote system availability, improve operational efficiency and deliver the best customer experience.  As the leading independent provider of simulation, configuration and test tools for the payments industry, we work with issuers, acquirers, processors and ATM fleet owners from across the globe to manage, automate and integrate their ATM and payments testing environments.

Our solutions protect the leading financial services brands throughout the world, ensuring they meet the increasing demand from their customers for anytime, anywhere services. We have served more than 600 clients globally, helping them drive more than 100,000 ATMs, connect to over 100 interchanges and process thousands of transactions per second.

Our VirtualATM and ATMulator Plus products allow organizations to implement advanced function ATMs faster and test them more quickly and completely than is possible with legacy (or manual) test tools. For our larger clients, VirtualATM offers enterprise-class command and control capabilities to help connect and manage users 24x7 from anywhere on the planet, freeing them from having to rely on physical ATMs in a test lab.
