Bleep UK PLC, together with partners Mastercard, Ingenico and Global Payments, was awarded a ‘Highly Commended’ for the Best Industry Innovation of the Year at The Cards & Payments Awards.
The entry was for the launch of Mastercard’s Sonic aural brand at The 148th Open Golf Championship in County Antrim, an industry first for payments in the live events space.
The Card & Payments Awards recognise customer service, excellence and innovation in the UK and Irish card and payments industry. Very well established and now in its 15th year, each year many eligible organisations compete for one of these prestigious awards which are judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
After a rigorous entry and judging process, the Awards culminated in a prestigious Black Tie and Dinner at JW Marriott Grosvenor House on London’s Park Lane on Thursday 6th February 2020.
Ross Weszka, Marketing Manager at Bleep, commented, “This year was an incredibly competitive year for entries, especially in the industry innovation category and we are all immensely proud of being awarded a ‘Highly Commended’.”
“Bringing the Mastercard Sonic to life through EPOS and Payments in the retail store at The Open in County Antrim, together with our partners, was a considerable achievement and one which highlights our credentials as innovators and experts in the field of point of sale.”
