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.

Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
