ACI Worldwide, a provider of payment systems, has outlined its product roadmaps to the market, describing how the combination of ACI and S1 adds innovation, new product capabilities and resources around the globe to support the needs of its customers.
One component of the newly revealed roadmap includes ACI’s plans to enhance its mobile banking and mobile payments offerings. Specifically, the company detailed the next release of ACI Mobile Channel Manager and previewed new capabilities for mobile wallets, mobile issuing of near field communication (NFC) cards and mobile alerting.
Another element of the roadmap includes plans to expand and integrate its online banking capabilities. Building on the strengths of ACI and S1 online banking solutions, including Online Banking, Corporate Banking and ACI Enterprise Banker, the company previewed ACI Universal Online Banker, a new product that will enable financial institutions of all sizes around the globe to deliver online banking capabilities to the consumer, small business and corporate banking markets all from a single platform. Its modular approach will provide financial institutions with the power and flexibility to package customised product bundles designed to meet the unique needs of their key market segments, helping to maximise fee generation while reducing the need for redundant systems.
“In today’s global marketplace, consumers and small businesses need many of the same global, multi-currency and cash management capabilities that until recently had been reserved for large multi-national corporate clients,” said Matt Ellis, senior vice president (SVP), ACI Worldwide. “Universal Online Banker will transform online banking by removing the technical barriers that dictate what online features a bank can offer its customers. Having these features available in a single, flexible solution gives financial institutions the power to tailor competitive packages that ultimately help them to win customers and generate revenues.”
