E-Global deploys NCR payments platform

E-Global, an electronic payments processor in Mexico, has deployed payments transactions platform from NCR Corporation.

NCR has supplied Authentic, a software platform for switching and payment authorization, to create rules for validation, improve the consistency of its data and gain visibility into its validation process.

E-Global provides switching and card processing services to nearly two-thirds of Mexico’s 350,000 point-of-sale devices.


Providing the payments engine for global networks, banks and large processors, Authentic has achieved in excess of ten thousand transactions per second in benchmark tests.

Felipe Villegas, CIO of E-Global, said: “We have found Authentic to be a unique solution that easily meets our need for performance, and fits perfectly into our business. The product itself is exactly what we need. The local support has been excellent. The only question is why we didn’t adopt it sooner.”

Authentic is entirely built using Java, creating long-term benefits for institutions such as E-Global in terms of finding and hiring its own support and development staff.
