Alphacomm Solutions Teams with ACI Worldwide to Accelerate International Expansion and Enhance Customer Experience for Telco and Digital Goods Sectors


ACI's UP eCommerce Payments solution powers rollout of Alphacomm's
services for reload, reminder, payments and fraud protection

(NASDAQ:ACIW), a leading global provider of digital
payment and banking solutions
, announced today that Alphacomm
Solutions, a specialist payments solution provider for the telco and
digital goods sectors, is implementing ACI's UP
eCommerce Payments solution
to deliver next-generation payments and
expand its global footprint.

In the telco sector, mobile and virtual network operators (MNOs and
MVNOs) are under pressure as traditional spending declines, and fraud
continues to rise. However, new opportunities are opening due to the
rise of digital content and IoT (Internet of Things), which could
represent a €13bn opportunity in Europe alone over the next five years.1
Alphacomm equips its clients with a solution that maximizes this
opportunity; fine-tuning the payment mix for superior customer service,
while ensuring first-rate payments security and fraud prevention.

eCommerce Payments solution
provides Alphacomm with extensive global
connectivity to a network of more than 350 card acquirers and
alternative payment methods, backed by PCI-compliant payment processing
in the cloud. Covering 160 countries, supporting all currencies and over
25 languages, ACI's solution makes it possible for Alphacomm to realize
its ambitious global growth plans.

"Speed can be critical in taking advantage of market opportunities, and
for any organization that accepts payments, that means having the
ability to quickly and efficiently configure alternative payment methods
and optimize acquiring strategy," said Andy McDonald, vice president –
Merchant Payments, ACI Worldwide. "Though our pre-existing technical
connectivity to more than 350 payment endpoints, Alphacomm can fully
focus their resources on feature development and take customer
experience to the next level."

"ACI's track record of nearly twenty years supporting telecommunications
companies, and demonstrated expertise in helping businesses expand
internationally, made it a natural fit for Alphacomm," said Huub
Sparnaay, CEO, Alphacomm. "Access to ACI's global network of endpoints
enables our customers to fine-tune their payments setup for higher
conversions, while the tokenization solution provides a seamless
checkout flow that improves the overall customer experience."
