ACI Worldwide Inc. said Monday that it would supply payment services to Domino's Pizza Inc.

The payments software company said it will provide the Ann Arbor, Mich., pizza chain with more features to serve customers who prefer to pay with a credit or debit card when they order food online.

"As our customers increasingly turn to cards rather than cash, we knew we needed to have as much control as possible," Christopher McGlothlin, Domino's chief information officer, said in a press release. "We also need to ensure we provide our franchisees with the most secure, efficient and innovative platform."

Ralph Dangelmaier, ACI's president of global markets and services, said the system also is meant to help Domino's stores reduce costs.

"Domino's wanted to be able to implement new features, and reduce dependency on in-store processing which, in turn, will help manage the total cost of ownership," Dangelmaier said. "ACI Worldwide can meet these needs."

The new payment system would let Domino's accept new payment types in the future and will be available across all stores.
