South African payment processor Ecentric Payment Systems has expanded its partnership with ACI Worldwide to extend its omni-channel capabilities for African merchants.

Under the partnership, Ecentric will leverage ACI’s UP Merchant Payments to extend its capabilities with e-commerce payment and gift card solutions.

Ecentric, which has been partner with ACI for over 15 years, has also deployed service-oriented solution-architecture principles and design via ACI’s Universal Payments framework that supports integration with other systems through open payment infrastructure.

Ecentric managing director Hassen Sheik said: “ACI’s UP Merchant Payments solution enables us to offer true omni-channel payment processing both domestically and in the global markets where we operate. ACI and its powerful Universal Payments framework provides us the scalability we need to deliver the reliable network infrastructure that our clients demand.”

ACI Worldwide general manager for Middle East, Africa and South Asia Manish Patel said: “The UP Merchant Payments solution ensures that Ecentric can deliver a consistent payment offering across its clients’ many channels, while maintaining the flexibility to adapt to the needs of each individual market.”
