Innovative multi-screen payment platform PayWizard® has been awarded the Platinum European Seal of e-Excellence 2012 by the EMF (Forum of e-Excellence) and its partner associations in a ceremony today at CeBIT.
Held annually, the prestigious global awards ceremony honours ICT and digital media companies with an excellent track record in innovative marketing. The European Seal of e-Excellence is widely known for promoting companies in the digital field that develop innovative products and services coupled with excellent marketing practices to promote them.
PayWizard is focused on helping companies connect with customers more efficiently and secure greater customer loyalty as consumer behaviour becomes increasingly centred around mobile computing, online buying and social networking. PayWizard understands that it is critical for customer facing organisations to be able to detect rapid shifts in consumer behaviour and be able to refine their marketing, sales, and customer service accordingly.
Stephen Petheram, Marketing Director at PayWizard, said: “This is the first time PayWizard has entered these awards so we are thrilled to have been awarded the Platinum seal of e-excellence and to have been recognised internationally for our innovative technology and the quality of our marketing. PayWizard is rapidly becoming the digital multi-screen payment system of choice and we are committed to helping our clients to drive revenues and further enhance the potential of their businesses by delivering first class solutions to them.”
EMF General Secretary Margaretha Mazura commented “2012 is a special year for the Seal as it celebrates its tenth anniversary and in the quick changing world of ICT, this is an achievement we are proud of. The Seal is now a major focal point not only for Europe’s most successful digital media companies, in terms of products and services, but also in terms of marketing.”
