NAPLES, Fla. -- January 7, 2013

ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading international provider of payment
systems, announced today the release of ACI Money Transfer System 5.0™ the
company’s leading wholesale banking solution. The newest version of Money
Transfer System offers financial institutions the utmost flexibility in
defining and managing their payment processing flows. This most recent update
was developed as the result of a large scale collaborative effort between ACI
and a number of its customers whose design input and suggestions were included
in the final version.

“The newest version of Money Transfer System improves the payments industry’s
most robust processing solution with a greatly enhanced services framework
along with a highly tuned sanctions filter to combat the global issue of
sanctions checking,” said Jonathan Eber, Director and Product Line Manager,
Wholesale Payment Engines, ACI Worldwide. “Money Transfer System has an
extremely rich, detailed set of features. Introducing these as services will
allow a financial institution to utilize this functionality much more broadly
and consistently within its processing environments.”

By exposing services, ACI is empowering customers with more flexibility,
choice and control of their payment systems, both to leverage the services
across their organization as well as to further tailor their unique customer
offerings. Money Transfer System is one of many ACI products in the company’s
broader payments platform to deliver on this approach.

Money Transfer System 5.0 also provides:

  *Repair Reporting –provides the ability to explain to customers how to
    correctly format transactions in order to reduce expensive repair activity
    in the bank’s back-office.
  *SWIFT Network Validation Kit – performs validation on messages received
    through a back-end interface to avoid negative acknowledgements and
    improve straight through processing.
  *Expanded Global Clearing Channels – expanding the suite of global clearing
    channels available, Money Transfer System has added:

       *KuwaitAutomated Settlement System for Inter-Participant Payments
         (KASSIP) using the Central Bank of Kuwait's wide area network
         (CBK-Net) including Arabic character support
       *Saudi Arabian Riyal Interbank Express (SARIE) system including Arabic
         character support

“I am very impressed with ACI for the manner in which they solicited input for
the new versionof the Money Transfer System,” said Mary Sue McBride, Vice
President, Northern Trust Company. “We were heavily involved in the evaluation
process and our inputs and suggestions were clearly heard and implemented. The
lengths ACI went to in order to encourage, solicit and implement the feedback
of myself and a number of my industry colleagues shows me this is a product
based on end user needs. There are not many solution providers willing to
bring customers into the design process like ACI does.”
