Wincor Leverages BASE24-es to Drive End-to-End ATM Service

ACI Worldwide (Nasdaq: TSAI), a leading international provider of enterprise payments solutions, today announced that Wincor Nixdorf has implemented ACI’s BASE24-es® software as a transaction processing system for its end-to-end ATM service. The new service includes an ATM helpdesk, maintenance, cash and settlement operation and transaction processing. One of the world’s leading providers of IT solutions to retailers and retail banks, Wincor Nixdorf intends to expand the offering to license its managed ATM services across Europe.

BASE24-es is the industry-leading integrated payment engine for acquiring, authenticating, routing, switching and authorising financial transactions. The SEPA-ready solution is also EMV, PCI and TDES compliant – delivering a complete solution for the European market. Wincor Nixdorf is using the software to provide a comprehensive authorisation process. ACI is also providing ongoing maintenance and support services.

John Ennis, director, banking division in the UK at Wincor Nixdorf, said, “ACI has provided us with a truly world class authorisation and authentication system. The system has enabled us to create a flexible processing platform to greatly enhance our comprehensive ATM service. We are confident the software will help us provide an efficient and cost-effective transaction service for the banking and retail markets.”

Richard Launder, group executive, ACI Worldwide EMEA said, “We realised the importance of well-managed ATM systems for businesses and have developed functionality within our BASE24-es software that combines excellence of service with the most up-to-date technology. We also realised outsourcing the management of the system would provide benefits to Wincor including the ability to deliver an end-to-end service for banking and retail clients resulting in opportunities for cost savings and improved efficiency.”
