Domino's Pizza Chooses ACI Worldwide for Centralized Payment Processing

NEW YORK, Aug 25, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — ACI Worldwide, Inc., a leading international provider of electronic payments software and solutions, today announced that Domino’s Pizza, Inc. has partnered with ACI to consolidate payments processing, add more features and improve personalization for customers ordering online. The new system enables Domino’s to accept new payment types in the future, and will be available across all locations.

Domino’s Pizza selected ACI Worldwide to help manage the costs of accepting payments. Domino’s was also looking for more than just a software provider, it was looking for a well established brand to support the company’s commitment to investing in the latest technology for current and future opportunities. Additionally, ACI’s offering met Domino’s stringent demands for customer data security.

“The cost to process electronic payments, such as card transactions, is significantly higher than other forms of payment. As our customers increasingly turn to cards rather than cash, we knew we needed to have as much control as possible on our transaction processing,” stated Christopher McGlothlin, CIO at Domino’s Pizza. “We also need to ensure we provide our franchisees with the most secure, efficient and innovative platform, at the lowest cost, and we are confident ACI Worldwide will deliver that for us.”

Ralph Dangelmaier, president of global markets and services at ACI Worldwide, stated, “ACI has a pedigree for delivering innovative, cost effective solutions to retailers. Domino’s wanted to be able to implement new features, and reduce dependency on in-store processing which, in turn, will help-manage the total cost of ownership. ACI Worldwide can meet these needs and provide a payment processing system for today and tomorrow.”

ACI Worldwide’s solutions provide enterprise payment acceptance authorization, switching, rewards and loyalty management, gift and stored value card management, and enhanced loss prevention with refund and check authorization tools. Retail organizations manage their electronic payments with an integrated suite of products from ACI allowing them to execute a comprehensive and strategic electronic payments and loss prevention program.
