After two days of digging deep inside the minds of innovators from across the payments, commerce and tech ecosystem — and debating, engaging and questioning the concept of what exactly is “payments at the edge” — Innovation Project 2016 capped off the conference with a special live awards ceremony honoring the top global innovators that are taking those journeys to the edges of payments.
The PYMNTS Innovator Awards boast a rigorous submission, selection and voting process unmatched in competitive energy. Finalists were chosen by a panel of nine judges with deep expertise in innovation, and then voted upon by industry peers. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were distributed across 16 categories, including Most Disruptive, Best Technology, and the esteemed Most Innovative Company.
G2 Web Services was nominated for Most Innovative Company, alongside Digital Retail Apps, eProdigy, Forter and Wal-Mart. Past winners of this award include Apple, Loop Pay, PayPal and American Express. G2 Web Services received this top level recognition for launching groundbreaking Transaction Laundering Detection services used by acquiring banks, ISOs, and PSPs to protect against fraud and brand damaging activities.
We are proud to announce that G2 Web Services received the bronze honor for Most Innovative Company. Our SVP of Marketing and Chief Product Officer, Dan Frechtling, was on-hand to accept the award. “G2 is honored to be recognized amongst this prestigious group of nominees by the PYMNTS panel of experts and industry thought leaders,” said Dan Frechtling. “Our engineering, data science and analyst teams work hard to create solutions that stay ahead of fast-moving fraudsters and we are proud to be acknowledged for our contributions to protecting our clients and advancing payments technology.”
“I’m so pleased to congratulate G2 Web Services on their award,” said Karen Webster, CEO of PYMNTS.com. “The PYMNTS Innovation Awards are the most prestigious recognition in the payments industry. And because of the record breaking amount of votes for the finalists and the caliber of judges that reviewed the submissions, this year I think we were able to truly recognize the best of the best in the payments industry.”
