ACI and Wincor Nixdorf Strengthen Partnership and Embrace New Strategic Areas of ATM Collaboration

(Omaha, Neb. – 16 November 2005) – ACI Worldwide (Nasdaq: TSAI), a leading international provider of enterprise payment solutions, and Wincor Nixdorf, one of the world’s leading providers of IT solutions to retailers and retail banking, today announced plans to intensify their existing partnership and expand beyond the current working relationship into new strategic areas of collaboration. Such areas include rolling out IFX standardization, operating ATM networks in a managed services environment and delivering a service-oriented architecture for ATMs in a "Net Centric" environment.

ACI and Wincor Nixdorf share a long, successful partnership in delivering end to end multi-vendor solutions into customer environments. With the companies commitment to adopt and embrace industry standards, three strategic areas of joint development, sales and delivery services have been selected as the stepping stones for tightening this relationship. The joint goal is to provide solutions that are more flexible, cost effective and easier to integrate into existing environments in order to provide banking customers more value add services at the ATM.

Both companies will continue to leverage early international successes of IFX based solutions to the broader financial services community. Wincor Nixdorf’s ProCash IFX together with ACI’s BASE24-es™, implementing the IFX 1.7 specifications, has been currently released to a joint customer project. Direct links between the core development teams ensure also the quality and the productizing of future version of the respective IFX solution components.

"With Wincor Nixdorf’s expertise in driving open software standards in heterogeneous multi-vendor networks and ACI’s commitment to leverage standards in financial transaction services we strongly believe that we can bring the enormous benefits of IFX into today’s ATM world," said Mark Vipond, product group president of ACI Worldwide.

Wincor Nixdorf has established a "eServices Platform" to operate complete ATM networks, including all surrounding business and logistical processes. ACI’s BASE24-es has been selected as the foundation for the handling of the financial transaction services. Wincor Nixdorf’s unique eServices platform is designed to operate multiple ATM and Client-Server networks.

"The proven track record of BASE24® was a key decision point to cooperate with ACI in this business segment," said Andreas Vogt, director OES of Wincor Nixdorf Services Division. "The growing demand for ’Managed Services’ offerings in the ATM market segment will further boost the business and technology relationship between the two companies."

"Currently ACI and Wincor Nixdorf product teams are working to provide a roadmap for a next generation solution blueprint combining PC/E and BASE24-es services," said Reinhard Rabenstein Wincor Nixdorf CTO and member of the executive board. "The goal is to disclose a more detailed announcement around this joint initiative during ’Wincor World,’ Wincor Nixdorf’s next annual customer event."

ACI and Wincor Nixdorf will display their joint activities at this years BAI Retail Delivery event in Orlando, FL.
