Zipline, Transactis and BioCatch Earn Best Innovation in ACH Honors at Innovation Project 2016

At the PYMNTS Innovator Awards, celebrated annually during the Innovation Project, a two-day thought leadership event for payments executives, which took place March 16-17, three leading companies were recognized for their innovative use of the ACH Network. Zipline took top honors as the Gold winner; Transactis earned the Silver; and BioCatch earned the Bronze. 

The PYMNTS Innovator Awards are prestigious recognitions in the payments industry.  Judges from top payments organizations review awards submissions, and thousands of payments industry professionals vote for their top candidates. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards are distributed across 16 categories including Most Innovative, Most Disruptive and Best Technology, among others.

Like in past years, Nacha served as a sponsor of the Innovation Project and the Best Innovation in ACH Award.  Additionally, Janet O. Estep, president and CEO of Nacha, served as an Innovator Awards judge and a panelist, taking part in the “Keynote With Peter Diamandis & Roundtable Discussion,” which showcased leaders from companies and organizations creating and enabling innovation within their spaces.
