Ceridian Stored Value Solutions Named Winner in Paybefore Awards Europe

Paybefore has chosen Ceridian Stored Value Solutions (SVS) as a 2013 Paybefore Awards Europe winner in the Breakout Company of the Year category. Following in the tradition of Paybefore Awards, which is in its seventh year, Paybefore Awards Europe was created to honour excellence and innovation in the prepaid, stored value and emerging payments industry in the U.K. and Europe.

Germain Roesch, Executive Vice President and MD, SVS International said: “We are delighted to be chosen as a Paybefore Awards Europe Winner. We are pleased that our single-source program management approach has been recognised by the industry. We are committed to growing revenue for our clients, continuous investment in technology, and ongoing investment in knowledge.”

“Paybefore Awards were created to honour the companies and individuals that are at the forefront of innovation as well as successful market implementation,” said Loraine DeBonis, Paybefore editor-in-chief and chair of the judging panel.

SVS was chosen in the Breakout Company of the Year category because it has remained ahead of the curve and continues its ethos of investing in development and in its people – a combination that enables SVS to deliver superior service. During 2012 this approach revolved around recognising and exploiting the technological and social developments that are influencing the way people shop and give. SVS does not adopt new technologies because they happen to be in fashion, but carefully monitor trends and explore developments so that they can give consumers what they want.

In recognition of the speed in which shopping habits are changing – largely keeping pace with the change in technology – SVS forged strategic partnerships with experts at the forefront of emerging payment technologies.

“It’s a dynamic time in electronic payments as companies like SVS continue to innovate to solve payments problems,” she continued. “We are proud to recognise its contributions to advancing the prepaid and emerging payments industry. As the world changes, so do the payment and money management needs of individuals, businesses and government agencies,” added Bochicchio, Paybefore CEO. “Paybefore Awards recognises the organisations that use financial services to make people’s lives better, which is why it is so exciting for us to honour those who champion innovation and excellence.”

SVS will vie for best-in-category distinction, which will be announced during the Paybefore Awards Europe ceremony on 18 April at the Prepaid Expo Europe in London.
