07 Aug Engage has been shortlisted for the Emerging Payments Awards 2015

Contis’ Engage programme has been nominated as a finalist for the Emerging Payments Awards 2015, under the category for Emerging Payments Innovation of the Year.

The Emerging Payments Awards is in its 8th year and is dedicated to showcasing and rewarding the creative and business talents in the payments industry. This year, 2015, they had their biggest number of entries across the entire 20+ categories available and we, as Engage, are delighted to announce that we are a finalist among the best programmes in the world.

At Contis we pride ourselves on being the best end-to-end alternative banking and payment solution provider, always looking for new ways to offer clients solutions that meet their needs. With Engage, this aspiration is no different, we have delivered a total banking and payment solution.

Contis created an all-encompassing, holistic product that truly benefits all the parties involved, from the account holder, the credit unions and the retailers involved. Ultimately, Engage is a product that helps credit unions expand whilst offering a non-discriminating banking solution to everyone, regardless of their financial history.

Engage as a product and as brand is built around community involvement. Its ultimate aim is to support everyone in the local community by getting everyone involved – from the credit unions themselves to all the local stores or retailers. The end-user will benefit from an exclusive range of options from discounts, cashback and a fully functioning banking alternative product. The local community retailers get more traffic through the door from local people and therefore increase sales. Finally the credit unions create a more prolific high street presence and will help the credit union to keep local money in the community and away from the out-of-town retailers.

For Engage, this is the first slice of industry recognition we have received but we are sure it will not be the last as we continue to grow and support the credit union movement in the UK going forward.
