Direct debit originators could collect euro payments using a single service on any SEPA countries

Ace Software, a provider of intelligent payment services and Capgemini BAS, a subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, a provider of applications, have agreed to jointly offer Pelican for SEPA SaaS to financial services institutions.

According to Ace, the SEPA Direct Debit initiative will also be supported by Pelican for single euro payments area (SEPA). This enables direct debit originators to collect Euro payments on any of the SEPA countries, including their own domestic direct debits using a single service, rather than the country specific service in use today.

Engbert Verkoren, CEO of Capgemini BAS, said: Pelican for SEPA gives Capgemini BAS’s clients the ability to adapt to any future changes in the payments processing environment. By enabling access to the Pelican for SEPA solution via a SaaS approach, many users can take advantage of the system for head office or multiple branch access.

Parth Desai, CEO of Ace Software Solutions, said: The combination of Ace’s “intelligent” payments platform and Capgemini’s local skills and experience has proven to be successful in the Dutch payments market. The flexibility of the Pelican platform on which the SEPA specific offering runs, ensures it can be effectively deployed under the software as a services model.
