Paydiant, provider of a white label mobile wallet solution for merchants and banks, received two awards at the 2014 PYMNTS Innovator Awards which took place at the PYMNTS Innovation Project 2014, March 19-20 in Cambridge, MA. The company was recognized in both the Most Invisible Player and Best Cash Innovation categories. The awards, in their third year, are among the most prestigious in the payments industry and boast a submission, selection and voting process that is unmatched in intellectual rigor and competitive energy.
“This year’s award finalists comprised the highest-caliber innovators in the industry, and I’m delighted to recognize our elite group of award winners,” said Karen Webster, president of PYMNTS.com, the organizer of the event. “The awards are particularly meaningful because the finalists are vetted by judges who really understand the space and are then voted on by the PYMNTS community,”
In the Most Invisible Player category, Paydiant took top honors for its cloud-based, white-label mobile payment, offer redemption and loyalty platform. The solution allows merchants and banks to deploy and manage their own mobile wallets, under their own brands. It integrates easily with merchants’ and banks’ existing mobile apps, loyalty platforms and point-of-sale (POS) systems, requires no new POS hardware, and works with existing and future mobile and payment technologies. The silver medal in the Most Invisible Player category went to IP Payments for its IP PCI payments platform and the bronze to Early Warning for its fraud prevention solution.
In the Best Cash Innovation category, Paydiant took home the bronze medal. The company’s patented Cardless Cash Access platform enables consumers to use their smartphones, instead of their debit or credit cards, to withdraw cash securely from ATMs. The gold medal went to InComm for its Cashtie API and the silver to PayNearMe for its electronic cash transaction network solution.
The Innovation Project™ recognized companies and individual leaders for excellence in the payments industry in a wide variety of segments. These included the Innovator Awards™, viewed as the most prestigious recognition in the payments industry, where 69 finalists competed for 15 prestigious awards. Other awards handed out include the first PYMNTS Catalyst Award™, a Women Driving Innovation in Payments Award and a Best in Show Award honoring a cool, new innovator in the payments industry.
