ACI Worldwide Equips Acquirers with Cost-Effective Merchant Management System

ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading international provider of banking and payment systems, announced the availability of ACI Acquirer™ 3.10, the latest version of its comprehensive multi-currency merchant management system. As acquirers struggle to keep up with the high development and maintenance costs needed to run their legacy acquiring systems, ACI Acquirer provides a modern system that supports a range of standard operating systems and delivers reusable, SOA-based business services. Release 3.10 adds support for IBM System p, and opens the use of more than 600 SOA-based business services to UNIX systems.

“Acquirers want to bring new offerings to market quickly, yet are often challenged by limited development resources and escalating maintenance costs. The new features in ACI Acquirer 3.10 continue to put CIOs in control of development and IT costs, freeing them to focus on innovation,” said Jeff Hale, SVP, Retail Payments, ACI. “Designed to be flexible, scalable and efficient, ACI Acquirer empowers organizations to control costs, deliver better service and create new revenue streams through the faster delivery of innovative new products and services.”

ACI Acquirer 3.10 offers the following key new features and benefits:

  • Support for IBM System p: ACI now offers an additional deployment platform option, enabling acquirers with the flexibility to choose the best infrastructure to suit their environments and control infrastructure costs. ACI Acquirer also supports IBM System z and Sun Oracle platforms.
  • SOA-based business services for UNIX: In addition to support on the mainframe, ACI Acquirer now extends support of more than 600 SOA-based business services to UNIX environments. This greatly lowers application development costs and speeds time to market through the re-use of common services such as revenue sharing, Interchange-plus pricing and merchant applications.

“Acquiring organizations around the world face a dramatic increase in the complexity of payment processing,” said Rick Oglesby, Senior Analyst at Aite Group. “Modern, service-oriented architecture is an invaluable asset to CIOs who need to provide a quicker time to market and a reduction in costs when launching new products and updating for rapidly evolving compliance requirements.”
