Best Innovation in Shopping/Commerce Recognized for innovation, value, and impact.

BOSTON, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today BlueSnap announced its Smarter Payment Gateway has been selected as a finalist in the Best Innovation in Shopping/Commerce Product category for the MITX What's Next Awards. This year MITX combined its annual Innovation and Interactive Awards into a single show recognizing Boston's entire digital ecosystem.

Since 1996 the MITX Award shows have grown to become the largest and most prestigious awards competitions in the country for marketing innovations, celebrating the best creative and technological accomplishments emerging from New England.

"The finalists that emerged from an unprecedented number of submissions received for this year's MITX What's Next Awards demonstrate the creativity and innovation of our region's rich digital ecosystem," says MITX Board Member and Communispace Chief Operating Officer Howard Kogan, who serves as Chairman of the MITX What's Next Awards Advisory Committee. "From startups to large corporations and everything in between, the individuals behind this work continue to raise the bar for the entire digital community."

BlueSnap's smarter international payment gateway both simplifies and localizes the online buying experience to help merchants close sales anywhere in the world – on any device – by optimizing the checkout experience for shoppers. This is achieved through a combination of industry-leading global support, automatic localization of checkout pages based on the shopper's geographic location, intelligent re-routing of failed transactions to help increase success rates, and more. The platform's features and functions help merchants break into new global markets, eliminate snags that cause shoppers to abort the purchase process, and build their bottom line through increased sales.

"We are thrilled to be named a finalist for our Smarter Payment Gateway," said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. "Globalization is one driver of innovation in the payments space and it is essential to offer a truly localized shopping experience, on any device, to increase sales from around the world. BlueSnap understood this trend early, and we have optimized our gateway for the global marketplace allowing more merchants to sell globally and convert more shoppers to buyers."

BlueSnap will be recognized with the other finalists at a gala awards ceremony traditionally attended by over 1,000 of the region's top interactive marketing and technology professionals. Winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Westin Waterfront Hotel on May 29th. Tickets can be purchased at www.mitxawards.org/The-Ceremony.aspx

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
