Translator Module - ECM
With SenTek EasyCap Conversion Module (ECM) any existing MasterCard and Visa Card Issuer, or Card Processor can quickly become an Amex Certified Card Issuer with very little effort and investment.

Our ECM solution provides translation capability between American Express and any new Amex GNS partner issuer/processor that already issues MasterCard or Visa. This is done by converting the authorization messages from the standard Amex ISO 8583 format to a Visa or MasterCard format;or to any proprietary customized ISO message formats, including delimited or fixed formats.

The ECM module also provides translation from one file format to any other file format, including translation of headers and trailers. This will allow the GNS partner to interchange files without impacting their respective background systems, such as capture processing, dispute and chargeback handling, as well as any other existing
process in place.

These translation capabilities turns into a huge benefit for the new partner by greatly reducing development and integration costs while expediting the time to market for the American Express Card Products.
