29 January 2009

ACE Software Solutions, provider of intelligent payment, AML and STP solutions for the financial sector and Capgemini BAS B.V., a subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, one of the leading providers of application services in the Dutch market have agreed to jointly offer PELICAN for SEPA SaaS (Software as a Service) to financial services institutions.

ACE’s 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.

“PELICAN for SEPA gives Capgemini BAS’ 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 access” said Engbert Verkoren, CEO of Capgemini BAS B.V.

“The combination of ACE’s “intelligent” payments platform and Capgemini’s 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,” said ACE Software Solutions CEO Parth Desai.
