SINGAPORE & NAPLES, Fla. -- July 16, 2013

ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading international provider of payment and
banking systems, today announced that it has partnered with DBS to deliver a
first-of-its-kind online banking platform to corporates in Asia. DBS selected
ACI Universal Online Banker and ACI Global Trade Manager solutions to power
its IDEAL^TM 3.0 regional internet and mobile banking platform, a
state-of-the-art platform which provides corporate customers with a faster,
simpler and smarter means of managing their cash and trade transactions –
anywhere, anytime, from a single platform.

DBS IDEAL 3.0, an award-winning regional corporate internet and mobile banking
platform for innovation, is globally accessible and offers a robust suite of
cash management and trade finance capabilities. The platform provides
customers with a single login to access account statements and securely
initiate transactions on a real-time basis. To date, IDEAL 3.0 serves over
162,000 corporate users in 104,000 institutions across Singapore, Hong Kong,
China, India, Indonesia, Taiwan and the United Kingdom, and processes more
than 40 million transactions annually.

“The IDEAL 3.0 platform is a great example of an innovative corporate banking
solution with very strong usability and breadth of offering,” says Marc
Harrison, a consultant with Greenwich Associates. “DBS partnered with ACI to
deliver a solution that is well suited to the needs of corporate and
commercial clients.”

“DBS has a very diverse corporate client base in terms of size of business and
geography – ranging from local-small and medium sized enterprises to
Western-multinational corporates and large Asian businesses. We needed a
flexible solution to allow us to cater to our clients’ complex requirements
and provide the necessary tools to manage their working capital,” said Tom
McCabe, Head of Global Transaction Services at DBS. “We partnered with ACI
because of the flexibility of its platform to incorporate DBS’ desired product
features and the company’s proven success in delivering an integrated
experience across internet and mobile environments.”

“DBS was able to integrate ACI’s solution into our technical infrastructure
across our key markets – greatly reducing operational costs. This integration
also provided standardization of operational processes and delivered
straight-through processing with no manual intervention, dramatically
increasing our efficiency and reducing human error,” added Dave Gledhill, Head
of Group Technology and Operations at DBS.

“ACI’s relationship with DBS is one of true collaboration and innovation. DBS
shared unique insights into the needs of Asian corporates, which helped ACI to
further optimize our online and mobile banking solution to best suit customer
uses,” said Paul Henaghan, Managing Director, Asia Pacific and Japan, ACI
Worldwide. “We’re proud to extend our relationship into new areas, including
the support of DBS’ EMEA and Americas expansion, as well as adding new
features for corporates in Asia.”
