Paragon's payment testing tools and simulators have the features, functions, and flexibility to help your testing operations become faster, more efficient and more accurate - so that you can deliver a superior payment experience to your clients.



There can be no doubt that running automated tests is faster and more accurate than manual testing. Completing more tests with less effort means more projects will finish on time and on budget - improving your resource utilization, as well as your bottom line.


Paragon tools and simulators are designed to complement and enhance your manual testing efforts, enabling developers, testers and QA teams to be more efficient. We make it easy to run functional, regression, or performance tests from a single user interface.


Test automation helps reduce the risk of human error, ensuring that tests are always run consistently and accurately. Identifying and correcting potential issues early improves the reliability and availability of your systems and helps prevent painful and costly outages.


Paragon solutions not only provide significant out-of-the-box functionality, they are highly configurable with flexible editing and validation capabilities. Individual sandbox environments enable your resources to test the way that works best for them.


We continually invest in the people and technology to keep our tools and simulators up to date and compliant with the latest industry mandates, so your resources can focus on your business and delivering the best possible customer experience.


Keeping our payment systems safe and secure is critically important for all industry participants. Paragon’s solutions consistently and accurately process and validate issuer and acquire message flows, ensuring that transactions are properly constructed and executed according to a specific specification.


Let's Talk Testing!

Paragon has built long-term relationships with many of the largest and most sophisticated payment processing organizations in the world by delivering innovative products and superior customer service. Let's talk about how we can help you.

What Our Clients Say...


Paragon software allows us to do quicker and more accurate testing.  We can set up as many test scripts as we want and use them multiple times as needed.  We can also easily make updates to our ATM screens and test the entire transaction flow prior to uploading the configuration files to the ATM.

Vice President
Regional Bank A, North America

We can review the ATM configuration flow and exclude all unnecessary states and screens so we don’t load them, which has saved us time and money.  We can also quickly test how numerous response codes are seen on the ATM screen.

Department Head
ATM Processor, Europe

Paragon’s ATMulator helped us quickly develop and implement a new enhanced ATM configuration, and FASTress provided the opportunity for us to determine, prior to production deployment, if our transaction authorization host could meet our processing needs.

Program Manager
Tier One Bank A, North America

Instead of conducting all of our testing directly with member organizations, we use Paragon to simulate and test these interfaces which has significantly reduced our testing time.  The QA team uses Paragon software to execute their test plans and the developers are starting to use the products for their technical tests.

QA Manager
ATM Network Operator, Latin America

Paragon solutions save us time and money by allowing our developers to test changes to our ATM processing at their workstation. Paragon has always been helpful and seems more like a partner than a vendor.

Programming Manager
Regional Bank B, North America

FASTest is a strong product which does as it advertises. It’s easy to use and bulletproof once the transactions are built. We use this application daily and rely on it heavily to run comprehensive regression tests.

QA Manager
Global Merchant Acquirer

We place great value on our relationship with Paragon who has always proven to be responsive to our company's needs!

Vice President
Third Party Processor, North America

Paragon enabled us to significantly reduce the number of test hours with our service provider. As a result, we have cut our outside testing costs and are using our time more efficiently.

Senior Vice President
Regional Bank C, North America

Stress testing is a mandatory requirement for all our mission critical transactional systems.  We chose Paragon because we believe they offered the best quality/price ratio.

Program Manager
Tier One Bank B, North America

By combining our expertise with Paragon’s proven ePayment performance testing solution, we were able to prove our customer’s system capacity in only one month. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality solutions to meet their business objectives and look forward to partnering with Paragon on future engagements.
