The 2021 IBAs received entries from organizations across 63 nations and territories.
More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Startup of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.
2Checkout (now Verifone) won in Company of the Year for Computer Software for Large Companies and in the Electronic Commerce Solution categories in the international competition, as well as in the Payments and Electronic Commerce Solution categories for the American awards. As part of the recognition, the company received overwhelmingly positive praise from the judges, including comments such as these:
- For the Company of the Year category: “Excellent Entry. […] It provides a clear description and evidence about the growth of the organization. And the evidence shows a team dedicated to excellence. Smart partnerships aided the growth and achievement levels. The road map and evidence provided by the organization help support their claims. Well done!”
- For the Electronic Commerce Solution category: “Great supporting evidence showing continuously adding value to the end customers (consumers and/or businesses).”
- For the Payments Solution category: “Great entry, reviewed the supporting documentation, the rating is based on the New Product & Service categories.”
Stevie Award winners were selected based on the average scores provided by more than 260 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from June through early August for the International Awards and 250 judges for the American version, which concluded in April 2021.
“We are very proud of this achievement, showing commitment to excellence not only from a product perspective – as we invest and continuously push to market new, leading-edge capabilities that ensure merchants on our platform have the competitive advantage to differentiate themselves in global markets – but also from an overall company strategy perspective: We are committed to being an all-in-one digital commerce solution, and this comes through the commitment to our people, clients and through solid partnerships,” said Alexandra Badea, VP Corporate Marketing EMEA at Verifone.
“What we’ve seen in this year’s IBA nominations is that organizations around the world, in every sector, have continued to innovate and succeed, despite the setbacks, obstacles and tragedies of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “All of this year’s Stevie Award winners are to be applauded for their persistence and their resilience.”
