Stand Up and Be Recognized
By Steven Casco, Founder and President, CardNotPresent.com and the CNP Expo
T he final week of January marks the last opportunity for service providers that support e-commerce and other CNP merchants to get their nomination materials in for the 2013 CNP Awards . I wanted to take this chance to urge companies that believe in their solutions, that feel their products make merchants’ lives easier, to continue, or even begin, the nomination process.
We originated the idea of the CNP Awards because we know how difficult it is to understand the difference between solutions that are great and those that are just good enough. Some have stood the test of time. Others come from newcomers to the space that many aren’t yet even aware of. The awards serve to honor the solutions that come from industry veterans and those that come from the hottest startups.
I’d like to thank our panel of expert judges—representing consultants and merchants who use and recommend these solutions every day—for giving their time to evaluate and choose from the array of solutions in each category. But, don’t forget your customers. Our Customer Choice awards in each category give them the chance to vote for the companies that are most effectively serving them. If you have happy customers, their votes could mean your name being called at the event.
So download our nomination form for all of the information on the categories, how to enter and where your customers can register their votes. Contact us if you feel you can’t make the Jan. 31 deadline. And, register to attend the CNP Expo where our CNP Awards celebration has been re-imagined to provide a fun atmosphere where we can give our industry and its brightest players their due.
