Michael has worked in the payments industry for 17 years, and has been employed by ACI as lead solution consultant. Throughout his career, Michael has been determined to see how EFT software is used by real customers, and is continually discovering that each customer has unique requirements - there’s no one-size-fits all solution. Similarly, he believes that each customer has unique perspectives to contribute to a collective “industry view”. Michael finds distilling this industry view, and seeing how it compares to our solution’s capabilities to be both reassuring and challenging.

Michael's main area of interest is payment solutions for retailers - whether they are hosted on-prem, by a partner, or by ACI in AOD.

    "Has anyone given you anything or asked you to carry on or check any items for them?"

  • SEPA Widdershins

    Wednesday, July 18, 2012

    The European Payments Council (EPC) recently achieved its 8th birthday. Back in 2002, the road to SEPA probably looked fairly straightforward – the EPC would develop the payment schemes and frameworks necessary to realise SEPA, and market forces would ensure a smooth transition from the fragmented payments landscape of the time in Europe to the calm waters of a single payments area. The European banking industry would deliver the basis on which SEPA would be built, the rest would fall into place as a matter of course, and the end-user would be Very Happy.
