TSYS Inc., the Columbus-based payment processing firm, ranked No. 8 on a list rating the top 100 global firms providing financial services technology.

Behind fifth-ranked NCR Corp., which moved its corporate headquarters from Dayton, Ohio, to Duluth in June, TSYS ranked second highest out of the five Georgia-based firms included on the annual “FinTech 100” list.

The list, published in an Oct. 29 special report by “American Banker” magazine, is comprised of technology firms for which the financial services industry makes up at least a third of revenues.

Atlanta-based credit data agency Equifax Inc. ranked No. 17, dropping one spot from last year. S1 Corp., a Norcross-based firm that provides technology platforms for financial institutions worldwide and posted $228 million in revenues last year, also slid one spot to No. 50. Another Norcross firm, Goldleaf Financial Solutions Inc., gained three spots to No. 84.

This year, TSYS moved up one from its No. 9 slot in 2008. NCR’s ranking was unchanged from last year.
