ACI Worldwide's UP Retail Payments

As customers of global-payments solution provider ACI Worldwide retire aging platforms, they are clamoring for Linux-based options. ACI Worldwide has responded with a Red Hat Enterprise Linux version of UP Retail Payments, a complete and customizable end-to-end enterprise payments solution. UP Retail Payments, targeted at banks and processors, combines the benefits of ACI's BASE24 and UP BASE24-eps solutions. BASE24 is ACI's retail payment platform; UP Framework orchestrates any payment type, channel, currency or network.

ACI's approach with this solution is like a bridge between BASE24 customers' current systems and evolving end-user demands, enabling them to continue running some or all of their systems into the foreseeable future. This strategy lowers risk and costs, adds ACI, eliminating the need to "rip and replace" systems to address emerging payment needs. ACI emphasizes the advantages of the new RHEL version of UP Retail Payments, such as a 50% reduction in TCO while increasing performance, scalability and reliability.
