Chair of the judging panel, independent advisor & international speaker

WELCOME BACK TO THE MPE 2022 AWARDS!

As the MPE 2022 Awards Chair, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the prestigious Merchant Payment Ecosystem Awards for the 15th Annual Conference for the Payments Industry, organised by the Empiria Group.

Last year, the awards were fully virtual, and the last in-person event was in 2020. This makes it even more special for me be able to say that I look forward to welcoming you all in person in Berlin! I know we’ve all missed it and Berlin is really the home of MPE.

As always, we remain committed to our “Guiding Hand” theme, and after a difficult couple of years, it is fitting that the underlying meaning for our theme this year is “Growing Faster” and our popular statuette will reflect this.

According to the criteria, the "Most Innovative Fraud/Prevention Solution” Award goes to the provider who launched an innovative solution in the last 18 months that can demonstrate tangible benefits to merchants regarding fraud prevention, identity, or authentication.

"ACI Worldwide won this Award for their field use of their patented Fraud Management Incremental Learning Technology," said Andy Ivanis, Head of Sales & Customer Engagement at MPE.

"ACI Worldwide deserved the award for their multi-tiered approach to merchant fraud and the industry-first approach to machine learning."

Incremental learning technology is integral to ACI Fraud Management and considerably enhances fraud protection for merchants and financial institutions. While traditional machine learning models need to be 're-trained' as fraud patterns change, models using incremental learning make minor adjustments on an ongoing basis, allowing the model to adapt itself in production when new behaviors are observed.

“Fraud is evolving more rapidly than ever, so the tools used to detect and prevent it need to be highly adaptable and responsive to emerging threats,” said Richard Jolly, Head of eCommerce, Fraud & Omni-Commerce, Europe, ACI Worldwide.

“Recognition at this year’s MPE Award is proof that our approach - combining modern and market-oriented adaptive machine learning with a multi-tiered fraud strategy is helping payment providers and merchants to gain the upper hand in the fight against fraud. It also reflects the tireless efforts of our fraud analysts and experts, backed by innovations from our award-winning data science team, to deliver a best-in-class solution.”

This Award goes to the company that uses Data Analytics or AI to support merchants in any way that is NOT involved in Fraud prevention. To stress, this is not about Fraud Prevention using AI/Data analytics but covers areas such as loyalty, customer engagement, customer & merchant support/service, etc. Either technology, platform, or merchants may enter the award.

According to the criteria, the "Best In-Store Payments Solution" Award goes to the organization that has developed the most innovative in-store payment acceptance solution that provides value and differentiation for merchants and a great payments experience for customers.

"Global Payments received this Award for their GP Tom app, a revolutionary application that allows merchants to accept cards and cryptos with a mobile phone," said Andy Ivanis, Head of Sales & Customer Engagement at MPE.

GP tom is the only application that allows merchants to accept card and crypto payments on their mobile devices. The app turns a mobile phone into a payment terminal that accepts card and crypto payments so that small business owners do not need to obtain a traditional payment terminal anymore. The GP Tom App is especially suited for smaller shops and restaurants, market vendors, doctors, vets, couriers, taxi drivers, car and boat rentals, and other businesses requiring mobile card acceptance. No additional devices are needed. The app is also eco-friendly because it does not generate any paper receipts. All receipts are issued electronically by scanning a QR code or sent via SMS or email.

"Our recognition by the MPE Awards means that we are going in the right direction and changing the market for the better with our products," said Radovan Bryx, Head of Innovation at Global Payments.

"Our extensive efforts and investments in new products & features and innovation during the COVID era are positively perceived by our customers and industry experts."

This award is open to PSPs, ISOs, Facilitators, Aggregators, Payments Orchestrators, PAAS Providers & Acquirers and will go to the provider who can demonstrate real benefits to merchants either in terms of omnichannel or multi-rail payment acceptance service provision facilitation, open banking, payment orchestration, embedded finance, innovative commercial constructs, or other demonstrable and quantifiable merchant benefits (fraud reduction/chargebacks).

This award is recognition of the wonderful collective effort of our staff and many Pennies' Partners, from payments technology companies to merchants and their customers, who have so generously donated," said Peter Nugent, Director of Finance at Pennies.

The MPE went the more challenging way of finding highly skilled and reputable artists to create unique Guiding Hand statuettes, using valuable materials with designs changed from year to year, reflecting the current trends and important happenings in the payment industry.

In 2014 we started our cooperation with renowned Croatian artist Gordana Turuk. Gordana creates all her masterpieces by skillfully mixing organic glass and precious metals.

She continues to design the MPE statuette also for 2022...
