ACI Welcomes ISD Customers
On 21 March 2011, ACI announced the acquisition of ISD Corporation. This strategic acquisition will bring together two of the industry's marquee providers of payments software under one organization.
The combination of ISD’s in-store technology and market-leading approach to securing transaction data combined with ACI’s pedigree in delivering highly scalable, reliable and available payments engine will deliver the most comprehensive payments software in the market. Add ACI’s leading fraud detection and prevention solutions, integrated rewards management and other payment processing solutions, customers of ACI will now have the tools to drive a consistent-shopping experience and separate themselves from their competition with true innovation.
Pressures from the Durbin Amendment and customer-centric challenges mean turning payments into a source of differentiation is an opportunity that retailers should embrace. ACI’s acquisition of ISD Corporation offers retailers a fantastic opportunity to develop a payments strategy that forms the basis of delivering a cost-effective consistent shopping experience while reducing the overall costs of accepting electronic payments.
