ACEâs PELICAN platform has gained industry recognition for its functionality, flexibility and availability with targeted industry specific versions for SEPA, SWIFT and corporate connectivity. Commencing in 2009, the SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) initiative will also be supported by PELICAN for SEPA. This enables direct debit originators to collect Euro payments on any of the SEPA countries, including their own domestic direct debits using a single service, rather than the country specific service in use today.
âPELICAN for SEPA gives Capgemini BASâ clients the ability to rapidly adapt to any future changes in the payments processing environment. By enabling access to the PELICAN for SEPA solution via a SaaS approach, many users can take advantage of the system for head office or multiple branch accessâ said Engbert Verkoren, CEO of Capgemini BAS B.V.
âThe combination of ACEâs âintelligentâ payments platform and Capgeminiâs local skills and experience has proven to be successful in the Dutch payments market. The flexibility of the PELICAN platform on which the SEPA specific offering runs, ensures it can be effectively deployed under the Software as a Services model,â said ACE Software Solutions CEO Parth Desai.
