ACI Worldwide Expands Partnership With Microsoft To Offer Cloud Payments Platform

by August 10, 2021

ACI Worldwide, a global provider of real-time payments and digital payment software solutions, announced an expanded multi-year strategic alliance with Microsoft to deliver payments solutions in the cloud.

The alliance will accelerate and expand ACI’s cloud payments offerings in Microsoft Azure as more financial institutions (FIs) embrace digital transformation.

With global demand for SaaS-based payment offerings increasing, ACI and Microsoft will closely collaborate on innovations that empower FIs to launch new solutions, add new services to their existing platforms and deliver those new capabilities more quickly and with greater agility.

They will also provide FIs greater efficiency of operations, scalability, data protection, data sovereignty and better user experiences, ultimately creating new revenue streams.



In a joint statement, ACI and Microsoft said that its client list includes 20 global banks, a US-based digital bank with more than 30 million customers and a card issuing and banking-as-a-service software platform in Latin America.
