Every industry has awards and means of recognising the achievements of companies within the industry. Prepaid is no different. The Global Prepaid exchange Awards, which started in 2008, is now a yearly event that recognises on a global scale the programmes and innovation within prepaid over the previous year. www.prepaidawards.com
The event is held in London and brings together prepaid players from around the world. This year’s event was held on the 11 October at the Lancaster Hotel in Hyde Park London. The day consisted of a conference that included talks from industry experts and leaders. The evening is a black-tie affair hosting companies and guests that have been nominated for awards.
This year Tutuka was nominated as a finalist in two categories, Global Leading Prepaid Innovation for our ClaimsCard www.claimscard.co.za programme and Global leading Corporate Programme for NuCard www.nucard.co.za. Having also won the leading prepaid organisation for Central Europe, Middle East And Africa in 2011 we were thrilled for the two new finalist categories.
We did not win the grand prize in both categories but were still honoured to have the nominations. The event could be followed on Twitter #PPA2012 .
Well done to all the winners at the awards. We will certainly be back next year to compete and scoop up some more for one of our programmes.
