ACI Worldwide Transforms Payments and Security for Chile’s Largest Acquirer

Sponsored by Businesswire

(NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic
payment and banking solutions
, today announced that
Transbank, the largest acquirer in Chile and an existing ACI customer,
is now taking advantage of ACI’s UP Retail
solution to offer differentiated services to businesses,
maintain a competitive edge in the market and better comply with local
card scheme mandates.

Founded as a credit card processing intermediary in Chile, Transbank has
led the development of digital payments for almost 30 years. It plays a
critical role in the Chilean economy, responsible for a significant part
of the payments flow nationally and the exchange of payments abroad. The
company’s backend processing system was due for an upgrade, and at the
same time, the Chilean government regulations pushed to open the
country’s acquiring business, allowing new players to enter the market.
To maintain its competitive edge and comply with local card scheme
mandates, Transbank chose to update its system with ACI’s UP Retail
Payments solution.

“In the payments industry, change is the only constant, and to stay
relevant, we need to continue to transform our business,” said Vicente
Tredinick, Chief Information and Operations Officer, Transbank. “Our
goal is to continue innovating the Chilean economy toward even broader
global integration. ACI’s UP Retail Payments solution provides us with
the ability to bridge the features and functionalities of our existing
system with next-generation technologies, so that we can continue
business-as-usual while adding new services – to boost revenue growth –
and innovating in a protected environment.”

Transbank now has the flexibility to capitalize on market opportunities
by offering differentiated services to businesses, and comply with the
new government regulations. In addition, the organization is better able
to support the more than 300,000 businesses that are configured into its
system, processing volumes of five million transactions per day.

In the future, Transbank will also benefit from ACI’s UP Payments Risk
Management solution
, which will help bolster security through a
combination of machine
, advanced analytics and fraud and payments data.

“Real-time payments is already a reality in Chile, and moving to an open
digital banking environment is necessary to compete today,” said Marco
Bravo, vice president, Latin America, ACI Worldwide. “As a leader in the
market, Transbank is future-proofing its business with flexible
capabilities that drive speed-to-market and allow the company to compete
successfully, while increasing customer retention and delivering even
higher shareholder value.”
