equensWorldline and UniCredit to boost payments processing in Europe

equensWorldline SE, a subsidiary of Worldline, has entered into a strategic partnership with European financial institution, UniCredit in a bid to facilitate the processing of all SEPA payments, instant payments, multi-currency, domestic and high-value payments for both financial institutions.

Michael Steinbach, CEO of equensWorldline said, “Both equensWorldline and UniCredit have strongly established themselves in the European financial sector, and have been working as leaders in this environment successfully for many years. By jointly leveraging our long-standing experience and European footprint, we can offer European customers the services that suit them best. All of that will be further leveraged to the benefit of the customers, more and more also on a global level, as the payments processing is rapidly evolving into a global real-time payments world.”

The partnership will see equensWorldline be responsible for processing payment transactions for UniCredit in Austria and Germany, which will be undertaken through its compliant payments platform. The supplier states that all payments will be processed on the integrated platform and will boost innovations across the board of account-to-account payments products.

Alessandro Baroni, CMO of equensWorldline said, “We celebrate this exciting deal that gives equensWorldline the opportunity to cooperate with UniCredit for transforming payments processing in two of its core markets, fostering operational excellence and supporting distinct product and IT innovation.”

Recently, equensWorldline announced the launch of a browser-based Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) solution, WL Trusted Authentication, in a bid to offer customized SCA solutions for each user profile thereby enabling SCA for users not equipped with a mobile device.
