ACI Secures eCommerce Set to Expand Merchant Access to New Payment Methods

ACI Worldwide, a real-time payments software firm, and NTT DATA, a global technology company and IT systems integrator, have partnered to advance growth into new markets across Europe and Latin America. Initially, the companies will focus on the Italian market.

NTT DATA will integrate ACI Secure eCommerce into its technology solutions portfolio, instantly expanding merchant access to hundreds of local and cross-border acquirers and new card, digital and mobile payment methods.

Merchants across Europe and Latin America are seeking to modernise their payments infrastructure. One solution is ACI Secure eCommerce. This is a payments orchestration platform that enables merchants to accept new payment methods, prevent fraud and optimise customers’ payment journeys. In turn, this leads to maximum conversion and at minimum cost.
