With offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, ACET Processing offers financial services clients across Africa access to both the VisionPLUS account processing system from First Data, and the Fair Isaac TRIAD account management solution. This combination of world-class technology and the expertise of ACET's personnel enables consumer finance organisations to launch and maintain consumer credit products both rapidly and with minimal capital investment.

The hosting relationship will continue to be managed by best practice operational processes, and governed by world-class service level agreements.
