ACI Worldwide, a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, has announced extending its partnership with Pick n Pay to drive payments modernization for the South African retailing leader.

Under the deal, Pick n Pay will utilize ACI Omni-Commerce, a secure, validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) omnichannel payments platform, which delivers a safe, consistent and seamless payments experience to customers across all channels, whether in-store, online or mobile.

“We anticipate significant growth in transaction volumes over the next ten years as a variety of innovative digital payments products are launched — the combination of scalability and flexibility that ACI Omni-Commerce offers will not only support that growth but also ensure we’re future-proofing our payments environment. Transitioning to a service-based architecture will reduce time-to-market and equip us to respond to global payment trends, enabling us not only to maintain but to expand our leadership position within South Africa’s retail sector,” said Jason Piezel, head of customer applications, Pick n Pay.

ACI Omni-Commerce will enable Pick n Pay to grow its business and consolidate its technology while unlocking new payment capabilities. The solution will provide the retailer with the flexibility to react to new consumer payment preferences as well as increased self-service options.

“Africa continues to be fertile ground for payments innovation, and South Africa — as the continent’s second largest economy — plays a key role. Retailers need to move quickly to succeed in this challenging and dynamic environment, without compromising security and resilience of their core systems. Continuing its long-standing cooperation with ACI, Pick n Pay is strongly placed to grow its market share, leveraging more of our device and channel-agnostic payment technologies as the needs of its customer base evolve,” said Brett Stevens, director, Africa, ACI Worldwide.

Established in 1975, ACI Worldwide powers electronic payments for more than 6,000 organizations around the world. Through its comprehensive suite of software solutions delivered on customers’ premises, through the public cloud or through ACI’s private cloud, the company provide real-time payment capabilities and enable omnichannel payments experience.
