To honor the best innovations in the payments industry, the first PayTech Awards were held last week in London.
Presented alongside Fintech Futures, the awards aim to “recognize excellence and innovation in the use of IT in the finance and payment industry worldwide — and the people who make it happen,” according to the organizers.
