The companies were recognized in the Prepaid: Best Design category for the JetPay Money Access Card
Paybefore judges have selected the JetPay Money Access Card as a 2017 Pay Awards winner in the Best Design category. For 11 years, Pay Awards has conferred the most prestigious recognition of excellence in prepaid and payments technology industry. The awards are presented annually by Paybefore, whose publications are the leading source of industry information for payments executives.
Jeff Foster, CEO of Cardplatforms, commented, “We are extremely thankful and humbled to be recognized, along with our partner JetPay, by the Pay Awards. JetPay has an unwavering commitment to delivering superior solutions to their client and we are proud to help them achieve their mission with the JetPay Money Access Card.”
Foster added, “This honor represents the validation of our approach to only create custom solutions tailored specifically to the needs of our partners and their cardholders. JetPay didn’t want a standard program. They desired a payroll card solution that not only delivered tremendous value and convenience to their clients’ employees but also was beautifully designed to appeal to the cards’ target demographic.”
Michael Pires, the President of JetPay HR & Payroll Services, as well as Prepaid Solutions, exclaims his pleasure with this award stating, “We are pleased and honored to be recognized, along with our partner Cardplatforms, by Pay Awards in the Best Design category and appreciate the distinguished panel for selecting the JetPay Money Access Card for this great distinction.”
With the intent of the JetPay Money Access Card to be more than just a prepaid card Pires explains, “We designed the JetPay Money Access Card purposefully, and in such a way, that a cardholder will be proud to carry and put their card on display whether shopping at a local retailer or just out for a night on the town with a significant other or friends. I am pleased to share that we have thousands of cardholders across the U.S. who are proudly carrying the JetPay Money Access Card in their wallets and are enjoying the financial freedom that comes with the card.”
The JetPay Money Access Card was selected by an expert judging panel that evaluated a stellar field of global nominees.
“As our industry changes, we remain committed to honoring innovation and excellence. Among the big themes in this year’s competition were solutions tailored to specific B2B, health care, T&E and cross-border payment needs,” says Loraine DeBonis, Paybefore editor-in-chief and chair of the judging panels. “We also saw a remarkable number of consumer-focused solutions with ingenious approaches to savings and incentives that are making a difference in people’s lives.
“We’re proud to recognize Cardplatforms and JetPay for their contributions to propelling the industry forward.”
With the emphasis of the card being a true financial vehicle for many across the United States, Pires talks of the combining of convenience, security and design, with the passion JetPay has in placing people first; “We are passionate about providing prepaid solutions that enable our client’s employees across the country to maximize their paycheck while also giving them the flexibility and conveniences that traditional credit and debit card users enjoy.”
