Your Neighbourhood Credit Union has Completed Chip Readiness Testing with Everlink and CUETS

Toronto, ON, Canada – April 29, 2010: Strategic Information Technology Ltd. ("SIT") is pleased to announce that Your Neighbourhood Credit Union has completed "Chip Readiness Testing" with Everlink and CUETS.

"I want to congratulate Everlink, CUETS, Your Neighbourhood Credit Union and the team at SIT for implementing this new technology on time and on budget", said G. Robert Leeming, President of SIT. “This success is another example of the power of partnership in our business. Many companies have great technology, but it's people working in partnership that ultimately determine how successful a project is.”

Using Everlink's EMV (Europay, MasterCard, and VISA) Translator, Your Neighbourhood Credit Union has completed "Chip Readiness Testing" with Everlink that includes testing of a Card Authorization File update, (both full update and partial update), From Host Maintenance (FHM) updates, and financial transactions from both Automatic Teller Machines (ATM) and Point of Sale (POS).

CUETS testing included card order records, PIN distribution testing, PIN change at CUETS Enhanced Branch Services (CEBS) devices, MasterCard simulator testing, a Member CardTM being used at a non-Canadian merchant and a non-Canadian ATM, and authorization (or rejection) by the Portfolio Plus banking software system.
