FIME America expands to San Francisco
Consulting and test services provider FIME America has expanded its regional network by opening a new office in San Francisco, California.
The location allows US payments and NFC stakeholders to have local access to FIME's global secure-chip testing and certification expertise.
As the US EMV migration deadline draws closer, the office will at first offer EMV contactless testing services, so that regional stakeholders can confirm their NFC products perform as intended in the marketplace.
The FIME team will also offer consultancy services to assist market participants in developing secure chip technology implementations, and guide them through the testing and product certification stages.
Xavier Giandominici, director at FIME America, said: "To ensure optimum return on investment, US payments, NFC and mobile communities should acknowledge future requirements now so that they can implement long-term strategies that are flexible to changing market needs."
FIME is a consulting and test services provider for end-to-end secure transactions, with a presence across the US, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India.
