NAPLES, FLA—August 22, 2016ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, today announced that Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a leading fintech services company, has partnered with ACI to power its card fraud protection platform, extending its long-term relationship with the company.
