Since adopting PicturePay, bank and credit union customers of Allied Payment Network have seen 5-15% month-over-month growth in transactions and 10% growth in retention rates for customers who used bill pay. This has taken retention rates as high as 98%.

This is the emerging bill pay landscape as seen from the partnership between Allied Payment Network and Mitek. With more financial institutions offering ways for customers to pay bills, a feature like mobile bill pay helps distinguish those FIs looking to maximize opportunities through the fastest growing transaction channel.

Allied Payment Network notes that half of the customers who use PicturePay never took advantage of online bill pay services in the past. And a big selling point for the technology is the ability to pay using the mobile device's camera rather than having to type out information on a keyboard.

It's been a week of announcements and new initiatives from ACI Worldwide. Here's a round-up of what the Florida-based payments systems innovator has been up to in just the past seven days.

Issue Multiple Cards of Different Types in Less Time

Last Wednesday, ACI announced the latest version of ACI Issuer. The solution provides a single platform for credit, debit, pre-paid, and contactless card management.

The latest version includes flexible, rule-based product definition, and promises an easy integration with online channels. ACI Issuer 4.4 is multi-language, multi-institution, and multi-currency.

All Things to All Channels, All Currencies, All Networks

The goal of ACI Universal Payments Platform is to make it easier for financial institutions to adapt to changes in the industry. This includes everything from new regulatory developments to the challenge of mobile commerce.

ACIUPP-art.jpg

Universal Payments Platform integrates all aspects of payment processing, regardless of type, currency, channel or network. It is geared toward helping organizations bring new products to market, achieve a better view of their customer and business data, and respond to changing regulations and compliance needs.

Online Banking Goes Mobile

Bringing personal finance management, integrated bill payment, and account-to-account transfers to iOS and Android smartphones are the main attractions of ACI's Architect Mobile Banking feature. The launch of the solution helps the company bridge the distance between online banking and the potential for growth in banking via mobile devices. 

ACI partners with more than 1,700 financial institutions and payment processors globally. Driving $13 trillion in payments daily, the company processes payments for more than 250 of the world's leading retail businesses, and 18 of the biggest banks. 

ACI Worldwide has been a Finovate alum since 2011, when they participated in FinovateFall. See them demo their Mobile Enterprise Banker product, in collaboration with MShift, here.

Thumbnail image for Finovate-F-Logo.jpgIt was a big day for Finovate alumni. ACI Worldwide and FIS, themselves both Finovate alums, rang the register on a couple of smaller fintech companies they hope will make them even bigger players in the online banking and payments world.

Online Resources Bought by ACI Worldwide

In an all-cash deal worth $260 million, the purchase of Online Resources will help ACI Worldwide bring broader online banking and full-service bill payment options to its network of financial institutions.   

The deal is also expected to increase the company's customer base, with 1,000 banks, billers and other FIs coming along with Online Resources into the ACI Worldwide fold.

A look at the numbers:

  • Online Resources provides services to more than 1,000 FIs and billers
  • It processes more than 240 million bill payment transactions each year
  • It connects more than 9,000 billers
  • The combined entity anticipates cost synergies (i.e., saving in operating expenses) of more than $19 million.
  • Common shareholders will receive $3.85 per share, an 83% premium over yesterday's closing price

FIS Purchases mFoundry

FIS's decision to buy the 78% of mFoundry that it did not already known is seen as an opportunity for the company to assert itself in the mobile arena, while expanding its customer base in the process.

FIS already has a sizable footprint when it comes to banking and payments technology. And in bringing mFoundry fully on board, the company has helped fuel optimism about the prospects for greater innovation and "convergence" among the various players within the industry.

More on the deal:

  • mFoundry serves more than 800 banks and credit unions across the country
  • The acquisition will cost FIS $120 million (valuing mFoundry at about $160 million) 
  • The deal is expected to close by the end of March
  • Founded in 2004, mFoundry's clients include Bank of America, Zions Bank, and more than a third of the top-50 financial institutions in the U.S.
  • FIS serves more than 14,000 FIs in more than 100 countries

mFoundry and Online Resources both participated in our very first Finovate back in 2007. mFoundry was also on stage more recently at FinovateFall 2010.
