Rabobank Selects ACI Worldwide to Modernize Card Portfolio Business


Leading Dutch-based multinational bank selects ACI's Issuer Solution
to bring card management business in-house

Several ACI solutions, including UP Immediate Payments, are at the
forefront of Rabobank's innovation strategy

(NASDAQ:ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic
payment and banking solutions
, today announced that
Rabobank, a global multinational bank, will utilize ACI
to modernize the management of its card portfolio business.
The solution will allow Rabobank to quickly issue new payment products,
including all card types and new tokenized payment products, to better
satisfy the demands of today's consumers and corporate customers.

alternative revenue streams. Additionally, Rabobank utilizes numerous
ACI products and solutions, including UP BASE24-eps as well as UP Immediate
, which has enabled the institution to ready itself for the
evolution of instant
and Open Banking in Europe.

our global card portfolio business, which is part of our long-term
strategy to transform our bank into an agile, future-proofed
institution," said Erik Kwakkel, executive vice president, Payment
Services, Rabobank. "We selected ACI Issuer as it will allow us to make
efficiency savings and introduce new products at the same time,
ultimately increasing customer loyalty and revenues."

"We're proud to extend our partnership with innovative global financial
institutions like Rabobank," said Mandy Killam, group president, ACI
Worldwide. "ACI Issuer equips financial institutions with the ability to
issue new payment product types, quickly establish new or alternative
revenue streams and expand their geographic reach. It will give Rabobank
