ACI Worldwide, Mobile Payment Processing, Co-op, Cloud Payments, ACI Payments Orchestration, FinTech, UKACI Worldwide has announced that UK retailer Co-op has successfully moved its full stack of payments and fraud prevention technology software into ACI’s multi-tenant cloud platform hosted in Microsoft Azure.

As a strategic technology partner of ACI Worldwide, Co-op uses the full range of solutions offered by ACI Payments Orchestration Platform, including in-store, online and mobile payment processing and end-to-end payments and fraud management.

Moving its payments software into the cloud will enable Co-op to operate more efficiently, providing scalability, security, and enhanced data protection. The migration follows ACI’s announcement of an expanded multi-year strategic alliance with Microsoft to deliver payment solutions in the cloud.

Microsoft also supports ACI’s AI-powered anti-fraud processing model, featuring patented, proprietary incremental learning technology that allows clients to run payment operations securely and with high resiliency, all while protecting transactions and customers’ privacy.

“We are extremely happy about the successful completion of this very challenging and complex project, for which ACI’s support and expertise has been invaluable,” said Paul Fletcher, principal solution architect, Co-op Group. “We are always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our member-owners and customers with the security of data paramount in our approach. The nature of the technology means we’ll be able to do things faster and more efficiently and deliver new, seamless and secure payment experiences to our customers.”

“Our alliance with Microsoft has accelerated and expanded ACI’s cloud payment offerings in Microsoft Azure,” said Scotty Perkins, head of product management innovation and modernization, at ACI Worldwide. “Co-op is a great example of how ACI’s flexibility, proven technology and global expertise can help merchants and financial institutions meet the increasing demands of digital transformation as they increasingly embrace more efficient business and operating models.”
