Wave Crest Wins Three Paybefore Awards

Global Digital Payments Provider Recognized in "Head of the Class," "Boundary Buster - Program" and "Boundary Buster - Company" Categories

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wave Crest Group Limited, Wave Crest, a multi-currency digital payments platform that offers full-service on a global scale, has been recognized with three 2014 Paybefore Awards.

Given for excellence in the worldwide prepaid, mobile and emerging payments industry, Paybefore Awards recognize top companies in 23 categories. This is Wave Crest's second year to be recognized; the company was honored in last year's Paybefore Europe awards as the Breakout Company of the Year. This year, Wave Crest's honors come in three categories:

  • Boundary Buster – Company for enabling its "payments as a service" platform that supports multiple payment scenarios, where the power of technology, licenses, partnerships and innovation is in the hands of the client. Wave Crest integrates every key payments platform element, eliminating the need for multiple vendors, to quickly and easily come to market across multiple geographies, languages and currencies.

  • Boundary Buster – Program for best use of prepaid in a new market segment or industry for its electronic lottery payment solution in support of GTECH, the world's largest lottery processor. This combined closed loop and open loop solution transitions a largely cash-based market to prepaid. For consumers it eliminates the traditional time consuming process of purchasing paper lottery tickets and then redeeming prizes in-person. Winners can spend prize money with a Wave Crest-issued Discover card, which accesses their lottery account. Learn more.
  • Head of the Class for Wave Crest's student prepaid card for Tuition Management Systems, which gives college students who receive financial aid a convenient payment system to manage expenses after their tuition is paid. The program runs on Wave Crest's robust platform, which handles large-scale payment programs worldwide.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

All clouds are not equal.
