Payments technology vendor ACI Worldwide says that thirteen customers have moved to its new open systems platform, Base24-es in its first year.

ACI's Base24-es system, which is now available on HP Nonstop, IBM zSeries and pSeries, and Sun Solaris, provides application software to authenticate consumers and acquire, switch and authorise online financial transactions across multiple channels.

The vendor says that six customers have licensed the platform for enhanced authorisation, such as mobile phone top-up and smart card management, and seven have adopted Base24-es as a new payments system, including the world's leading credit card company and two top 500 banks.

In addition, says ACI, eleven customers are now live with its new Transaction Security Services module (TSS), which is used to support the Triple DES encryption standard. Also during the past year, eight licenses have been signed for ACI's new Automated Key Distribution System (AKDS), used to automate the distribution and management of security keys at ATMs. Both AKDS and TSS are based on the same 'enhanced services' architecture deployed by Base24-es.

In a related announcement, ACI says it has signed an an agreement with HP to provide Base24-es on the HP-UX Integrity Server family, offering 64-way Itanium processor performance and Unix capabilities.

The vendor has also struck a deal with Boston Communications Group to offer mobile top-up facilities at US cash machines by integrating bcgi's ATM Recharge Interface with Base24's ATM driving software.

On the contract front, ANZ in New Zeland has renewed its Base24 application software licensing for a term of five years. Base24 provides the payments engine front end processing for all ANZ New Zealand Eftpos and ATM network transactions. The ANZ New Zealand network comprises approximately 400 ATM's and 31,000 merchant Eftpos devices and processes approximately 25% of New Zealand's credit and debit card transactions

The bank has also entered into a five-year agreement with Hewlett Packard to upgrade its HP NonStop servers to the S7600 model.
