ACI Worldwide says it has converted 100 customers to Base24 6.0, the latest release of its e-payment processing software.
The vendor says that 30 financial institutions, retailers and processors around the world are live and in production with release 6.0, and more than 70 additional customers are in the process of implementing it.
Customers in production include South Africa's Absa Group, Bank One of the US, Cekab in Sweden, Hungary's Giro Bankcard and the National Credit Card Centre of the Republic of China.
Currently 330 financial institutions, retailers and processors worldwide use Base24 to acquire, route and authorise online e-payment transactions through physical and virtual channels such as mobile phones, PCs, ATMs, merchant Web sites and traditional retail outlets. The software operates on HP NonStop servers.
ACI says the latest release provides global EMV and multicurrency support, while helping to streamline back-office processes.
The vendor says customers can use the software to acquire EMV transactions from ATM and POS devices, authenticate transactions via interfaces to security models, and route and authorise EMV transactions while linking to Visa, Europay, and MasterCard's BankNet, MDS and Maestro networks as well as national networks such as LINK in the UK.
The new release also gives users the ability to acquire transactions in different currencies and apply them to accounts operated in many currencies, allowing financial institutions and network providers to operate centralised processing centers that cover multiple countries and currencies using a common Base24 platform.
Base24 6.0 is also the platform for enhancements such as triple DES support and remote initial key download.
