September 13, 2023

AFSOL and Fime forge strategic partnership for certification of universal payment solutions.

Fime has been selected by AFSOL, a leading payment software provider, as a strategic partner to drive its digitalization of payments. During the five-year partnership, Fime will provide consultancy and testing services to support nexo standards compliance. The pair will also drive alignment with major global payment scheme requirements. 

Fime will help test AFSOL’s payment terminal solution in line with the nexo Implementation Specifications (NIS) v4.0, soon to be followed by V5.0. This will increase user trust in its payment acceptance solutions by ensuring interoperability. 

We believe that the payment industry should offer merchants open, universal and cost-effective payment solutions. AFSOL is committed to revolutionizing the industry through adoption of open standards, which we have been using for twelve years to develop universal solutions.
As part of this strategic development, we needed a recognized international player like Fime to provide us with long-term support for the certification of our solutions
