VocaLink Selected as Recipient of NACHA’s 2016 George Mitchell Payments System Excellence Award

VocaLink announced today that it has been selected as the recipient of the 2016 George Mitchell Payments System Excellence Award. The award is given annually by NACHA—The Electronic Payments Association® .

The award is named after former vice-chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, George Mitchell, an early proponent of electronic payments. It honors an individual or organization that has shown superior leadership in the development, implementation or advancement of domestic or international electronic payments.

Cara O’Nions, Marketing and Customer Insight Director, at VocaLink commented: “We are thrilled to have won such a prestigious award. The global payments market is evolving fast and it’s great to be recognised for the key part we have played in its innovation and development.

“We are committed to becoming the leading real-time payment infrastructure provider globally and our work in collaboration with central banks, banks and other payment providers in Singapore, Thailand and the US takes us closer to this goal. As the US is the world’s largest payment area, the deal with The Clearing House is a particularly important milestone in reaching this vision. Over the coming year we will continue to focus on innovating our core business, expanding our existing platforms, developing new products based on customer needs and expanding our offering to international markets.”

VocaLink received the award for leadership in growing and advancing global payments, according to NACHA.
