NAPLES, Fla./SINGAPORE—August 18, 2020—ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time digital payment software and solutions, has been recognized by the 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards for ‘Innovation in Technology Development.’ The Gold Stevie Award was awarded to ACI for its collaborative approach to building transformative payments infrastructure with Payments Network Malaysia (PayNet).

The independently judged awards focus on recognizing innovation in all its forms across multiple business sectors, honoring companies that have delivered measurable business impact for their customers. ACI implemented Malaysia’s Real-Time Retail Payments Platform (RPP) with its Central Infrastructure (CI) Hub, enabling banks and other ecosystem participants to connect using a standard solution to drive real-time payments growth. ACI’s Real-Time Payments solution was lauded for its extensive capabilities, serving a wide range of real-time payments requirements and delivering an integrated portfolio of value-added services.

“We are honored to be recognized for innovation. This award reflects our commitment to supporting our customers as they transform and modernize their payment systems and steady themselves for the disruption that continues to reshape the financial services industry across Asia,” said Leslie Choo, managing director & senior vice president – Asia, ACI Worldwide. “We strive to meet the needs of multiple real-time payments schemes around the world and create differentiated products that address consumer, business and merchant demands. Technology innovation is at the core of this approach.”

“RPP and DuitNow lay the foundation for payments transformation in Malaysia, allowing the industry to deliver a seamless and consistent digital customer experience with faster, safer and more convenient payment services. Our vision goes beyond Malaysia – we aim to build links across the ASEAN region to enable cross-border instant credits and P2P payments, which offer widespread benefits for citizens and businesses,” said Peter Schiesser, Group CEO, PayNet. “ACI’s Real-Time Payments solution gives us flexibility to make material steps toward greater ASEAN payments integration. This award acknowledges that with ACI, we have a partner committed to developing innovative technology that moves the whole industry forward.”

Financial institutions globally are successfully leveraging ACI’s Real-Time Payments solution to support multiple global schemes and add-on capabilities through a single implementation. In addition to supporting 18 real-time domestic schemes, the solution is also the core processing infrastructure for Malaysia’s Real-Time Retail Payments Platform (RPP). It is used by major financial institutions as well as national switches to deliver real-time payments across Asia-Pacific and around the world.
