BBVA selects MTP to guarantee software quality in its payment methods applications

Madrid, 7 february 2012- MTP, a consultancy specialised in software engineering and quality services, has been selected by BBVA to undertake the quality control testing for its "Medios de Pago PG" project, implemented by the financial institution with the aim of installing a payment methods package as part of the BBVA Global Platform, which, in the future, may be used in all markets where BBVA does business.

MTP's Testing Factory was approved by BBVA in 2011 and successfully obtained TMMi level 4 certification, making it the world's only factory to be certified in this kind of software testing model. In terms of its collaboration with BBVA, MTP forecasts, in the context of this project, the designing of more than 11,000 test cases involving a total of 33,000 executions.

MTP has been carrying out software quality assurance activities on behalf of BBVA for more than three years and is currently in charge of undertaking Quality Assurance audits for the organisation.

MTP also works with BBVA-Bancomer, Mexico's largest private financial institution in terms of deposits and customer numbers, having achieved the top position for the past four quarters in the quality ranking created by the bank for evaluating the quality of the services provided by the different testing factories.

Enrique Contreras, Director of Payment Methods D&D Systems at BBVA, states that "one of the keys to the project's success is MTP's testing factory, which has allowed us to design and plan the testing strategy well ahead of time, deal with peaks of work and be very flexible in production by adapting to requirements at all times".

Meanwhile, Juan Manuel Ferrer, General Managing of MTP, considers that "we are very happy that one of the world's most important financial institutions is placing its trust in us once again to control the quality of the software it uses. Holding the top spot in the quality ranking created by BBVA-Bancomer confirms our testing factory's capacity to provide services on a global scale."
