(New York, NY. – 2 October 2007) – ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading international provider of software for electronic payment systems, today announced that the ACI global trade suite now provides a solution for open account transaction processing to compliment ACI Global Trade Manager for traditional trade finance. One of the world’s largest trade banks has already begun implementation of ACI Global Trade Manager™ and ACI Open Account Manager™ to meet the financing needs of their trade customers worldwide.
Global Trade Manager can be implemented in a hub and spoke model to service branches and customers globally. Branch personnel can request financing on-line on behalf of bank customers, or customers can request financing themselves through the bank’s trade front end. Document images can be uploaded to Global Trade Manager’s regional image hub which automates the routing and workflow associated with the full range of trade transactions. Banks can also electronically image and warehouse all trade documents.
Global Trade Manager supports the full range of traditional trade products such as Letters of Credit and Collections and Guarantees, integrated into ACI’s leading online banking solution Enterprise Banker. In combination with Open Account Manager, it provides the full range of financing needed by today’s corporate clients. Open Account Manager is able to fully support end-to-end processing for open accounts with messaging through SWIFTNet TSU.
“We are very pleased to expand our trade finance product line,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, president of the Americas and Global Wholesale Banking at ACI Worldwide. “Both Global Trade Manager and Open Account Manager are based on the same service oriented architecture and are unique in their ability to offer a sophisticated end-to-end solution for trade processing. We look forward to this implementation.”
