We are very pleased to announce that FIS has undertaken a bold move and signed a definitive agreement to acquire Worldpay, a global leader in payment technology solutions.

We are proud to announce that we were recently named as a leader in two recent IDC MarketScape evaluation reports of the North America banking market. The recognition comes as FIS sees growing marketplace success for Digital One and the Digital United platform, which enables banks to deliver a modern, seamless experience across both consumer self-service and banker-teller operations. IDC MarketScape recognizes next-generation FIS Digital One as being "truly omni-channel," delivering self-service and enterprise-facing functions on a single platform.
