SmartDebit shortlisted for Payments Innovation of the Year Award 2019
The FStech Awards finalists have been announced. SmartDebit are delighted to be among an elite group of shortlisted companies in the highly coveted Payments Innovation of the Year category for our new Direct Debit collection portal, Pulse.
FStech (formerly Financial Sector Technology) is the leading website for IT decision makers in the UK and European financial services sector. Now in their 19th year, the FStech Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the field of information technology within the UK and EMEA financial services sector.
The Payments Innovation of the Year category recognises SmartDebit’s striking achievement this year: the completion and implementation of our new flagship portal, Pulse. Pulse is our powerful and comprehensive Direct Debit collection portal that allows greater flexibility for organisations to control the flow of their Direct Debits.
SmartDebit’s growing in-house Development team started the build from scratch, following Agile methodology to deliver the complex project. The new cloud-based portal presents the foundation for technological innovation. Pulse makes the process of collecting and managing payments even easier than before for our Customers.
Henry Knight, Head of Product and UX at SmartDebit, comments: ‘A nomination for payments innovation is real validation of the Development team’s diligent work. Within our rapidly evolving company, we are working hard to modernise our little piece of the industry.’
‘Pulse is just the beginning for SmartDebit. As we look to move forward, build new products and push the limits of Bacs payment processing, recognition like this gives us great confidence in our approach.’
The winners will be announced on 21 March 2019 at the Awards Gala Dinner at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
