ACI Worldwide (NasdaqGS:ACIW), a leading international provider of software for enterprise payment systems, today announced that its market-leading ACI Money Transfer System has achieved the highest SWIFTReady accreditation for payments for the eleventh consecutive year.
The Gold Label accreditation recognizes that the Money Transfer System satisfies SWIFT's highest requirements and demonstrates ACI's commitment to SWIFT's standards, products and services.
"We are pleased to once again award our highest accreditation, the SWIFTReady Gold label, to ACI Worldwide's Money Transfer System solution," said Philippe Lecomte, manager, SWIFTSolutions Partner Management, SWIFT. "Since the inception of the SWIFTReady program, ACI Worldwide has consistently demonstrated its ongoing commitment to satisfying the standards set forth by SWIFT."
SWIFT, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, supplies secure messaging services and interface software to wholesale financial entities. Third-party financial applications, such as the ACI Money Transfer System, are either awarded SWIFTReady Silver or SWIFTReady Gold labels, depending on their level of compliance. Candidates for the SWIFTReady accreditation are evaluated on an annual basis to determine their ability to meet a wide range of SWIFT-specific criteria.
