ACI Worldwide, which announced Jan. 31 its deal to buy the online banking and payments company Online Resources, has been mulling plans to make the acquisition for roughly a year, said ACI chief executive Philip G. Heasley.

"This company's bill presentment and bill payment service is growing, and that combined with our ability to support online banking... I think it allows our core business, certainly our core online banking business, to grow at a very competitive rate," he said in a conference call. "I think it gives us a totally different profile."
