Best processor goes to Vantiv at CNP awards
Vantiv was just one of two companies recognized both by judges and customers as tops in a single category upon winning the Judges Choice Award and the Customer Choice Award for Best Processor at the 2016 Card-Not-Present (CNP) Awards held during the 2016 CNP Expo. The Best Processor award honor companies that most effectively respond to the special needs and requirements of businesses that operate online. eProtect, part of the Vantiv OmniShield family of fraud and security protection solutions, was cited as a complete eCommerce data security solution that provides online merchants with end-to-end data protection by removing sensitive cardholder data from their checkout pages and throughout their systems, storage and use.
Talking on the honors, Royal Cole, group president of Merchant and Financial Institution Services at Vantiv, said, "It's always gratifying to be acknowledged with an award, especially by your customers. Winning the Best Processor award with eProtect is a great validation of our approach to provide customers with value-added online payments products that make a real difference in their businesses."
This year Vantiv had been named a finalist in three categories of the awards program. The CNP Awards name two winners, one Judges Choice and one Customer Choice, in each of 12 categories. Judges Choice winners were selected by a panel of independent evaluators chosen for their deep experience and reputation in payments and the card-not-present industry. Customer Choice Awards were presented in each category based on inputs from customers through an online voting process.
Describing that honor, Greg Worch, who is senior vice president of eCommerce sales at Vantiv, said, "We’ve designed our eCommerce product family to provide exceptional value to our customers ‒ beyond helping them simply process payments ‒ by also offering add-on capabilities including fraud protection, security, data analytics and reporting, revenue growth and customer retention.”
