ACI Worldwide (ACIW), a leading global provider of electronic payment and banking solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with LD Systems, an international provider of ATMs, financial equipment and technology services. This partnership will enable LD Systems’ clients to offer quick, easy and safe bill pay options at kiosks across the United States.
LD Systems offers highly customizable kiosks with electronic payment functionality for myriad options including: self-serve banking transactions, utility payments, court fines & fees (civil, family, criminal), property tax, toll tags, DMV motor vehicle tag renewals, parking & traffic citations and more. The kiosks can also be configured for ATM functionality with cash dispense capabilities.
By partnering with ACI, LD Systems’ clients will gain access to the company’s integrated Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP) Services, which offer the broadest options for delivering electronic bills and receiving electronic bill payments, resulting in significant cost savings for biller clients and considerable convenience for their customers. ACI’s electronic bill payment services deliver choice of payment types (one-time, recurring, fee-based), channels (web, mobile, IVR or call center) and funding options (ACH or credit, debit or prepaid) to meet the needs of every consumer segment.
“Many government municipalities and utilities lack the resources to develop advanced bill pay solutions and recognize the significant value of utilizing a full-service payment services provider,” said Cliff Dean, CEO, LD Systems. “And as budget-minded government municipalities and utilities across the country evaluate cost savings and efficiency initiatives, LD Systems offers a cost-effective, multi-channel solution for these organizations, thanks to ACI.”
“LD Systems adds another payment channel solution we can offer clients, in particular, in the government and utility space. This is a unique payment channel solution that further differentiates ACI in the bill pay market,” said Eric Labiak, senior vice president, ACI Worldwide. “As walk-up, in-person, over-the-counter payments continue to play a significant role in the public sector, the LD Systems partnership brings an added value service with customizable payment kiosk solutions capable of taking credit, debit card and check payments, as well as future money transfer capabilities.”
