Innovative open standards software company signs co-marketing agreement with Level Four Software

Level Four Software, a leading provider of ATM and POS test and development software have announced a partnership and co-marketing agreement with Absolute Systems, a South African provider of open architecture ATM software applications. Absolute Systems is recognised in the industry for the strength of its XFS-based software. This partnership reinforces Level Fours commitment to open standards as the future for ATM and banking infrastructure. Existing and potential customers will benefit, as two innovative technology companies come together to offer future-proof solutions, easily adaptable to new trends and industry mandates. Level Four will use Absolute Systems core product offering AbsoluteINTERACT, in demonstrations of its XFS extension module in its EMEA sales activity, and its expanding Americas business. The XFS extension, which is part of Level Fours ATM Channel Development Suite, enables the simulation and full automated desktop testing of an XFS-based ATM environment and the interaction between hardware, software and the host system. The introduction of automated testing reduces the dependency on time-consuming and expensive manual testing and provides greater control and audit records of test cycles. Level Four and Absolute Systems both have ambitious growth strategies and the co-marketing agreement will enable both companies to benefit from the association with each other and to build on international relationships and reputations. Absolute Systems is well established in South Africa and its AbsoluteINTERACT product is internationally recognised for its flexibility and stability. Level Four has already achieved significant success in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, and it sees Africa, and South Africa in particular as a key market for its products. Martin Macmillan, CEO at Level Four Software said: An increasing number of leading banks are adopting open standards and in particular the XFS standard. XFS is opening up the market for multi-vendor ATM applications and companies like Absolute Systems are leading the way. Our partnership with Absolute Systems will benefit both companies as we look to progress the adoption of open standard solutions across EMEA and the Americas. Level Fours XFS extension enables complete end-to-end testing initiated from the desktop through the XFS application program interface to test the live software, using simulated hardware and peripherals. It provides the benefits of having a virtual ATM for developing and testing ATM applications with the latest generation of ATM software architectures from leading ATM vendors and independent software providers such as Absolute Systems. Level Four has already implemented its XFS extension at Rabobank in The Netherlands for testing the banks proprietary ATM application that sits alongside Wincor Nixdorfs ProTopas ATM software, running on NCR and Wincor hardware.
