PULSE, one of the leading ATM/debit networks in the U.S., serving more than 4,500 banks, credit unions and savings institutions across the country, is utilizing Lexcel for the continuous deployment and support of Lexcel TestSystem Network – PULSE ISO throughout the EMEA, Asia Pacific and South American markets. Lexcel’s solution enables automated network pre-certification testing for seamless integration to the PULSE transaction switching platform.
The decade-long successful usage by the internal PULSE certification team and deployments to PULSE partners made Lexcel the obvious solution for international deployment. In choosing Lexcel to manage deployment to their DCI members, they have reduced costs, freed internal resources, and streamlined implementation activities. PULSE benefits from Lexcel’s experience and professionally managed coordination, administration, and management of the deployment process.

Lexcel’s software solution includes certification request/response scripts and pre-defined pass/fail test cases to exercise 100% of the Diners Club International certification requirements. The PULSE simulator assists DCI members in initial message format testing and validation with the PULSE network, which ensures pre-certification and a successful migration to the PULSE production environment.
