ACI Enterprise Payments Platform provides foundation for MDT Innovations to support digital platforms across Southeast Asia with real-time payments capabilities

ACI Worldwide, a leading global provider of real-time payments and digital payment software solutions, announced that MDT Innovations Sdn Bhd (MDTi) has strengthened its payments capabilities with ACI Enterprise Payments Platform. Fave, Southeast Asia’s smart payments app, is the first customer to go live with the new solution, rolling out FavePay DuitNow QR at 20,000 restaurants and retailers throughout Malaysia.

With ACI Enterprise Payments Platform, MDTi has modernized its payments technology and offers customers new ways to leverage eWallet payments via real-time payment rails, delivering the benefits of instant payments as real-time adoption accelerates globally. ACI simplifies payments and provides flexibility by facilitating cost-effective connections to banks, real-time payment schemes and alternative payment methods.


Fave Asia Technologies Sdn. Bhd (Fave), which became the first non-bank merchant acquirer to offer the DuitNow QR code to merchants through a strategic partnership with Payments Network Malaysia (PayNet), uses the solution to empower restaurants and retailers to accept cross-channel payments and improve reconciliation and real-time payment verification with the FaveBiz platform. The recently launched FavePay DuitNow QR enables merchants to accept payments from 32 banks and eWallets that are part of the DuitNow ecosystem.

“Fave is primed for rapid growth across the ASEAN region, and achieving our goals requires payments technology that is scalable and can be modified as our needs evolve,” said Joel Neoh, CEO Fave. “We turned to MDT Innovations — and its partner ACI Worldwide — knowing that we would benefit from globally proven solutions that simplify our payment systems today but also modernize for the future growth of our platform.”

“ACI’s network of connections with national payment switches across Southeast Asia, its close cooperation with the region’s leading banks and its global footprint make it the ideal payments technology partner to fuel our growth,” said Liew Choon Lian, Group CEO, MDTi. “In a region where cross-border trade is central to eCommerce, and where real-time payments are rapidly becoming the norm, growing a robust regional payments ecosystem will be critical to the success of SMEs. ACI gives us the scalability we need to be at the core of that ecosystem, playing a crucial role in our expansion strategy as well as supporting key partners such as Fave.”
