We are looking for an innovative technology service or creative technological idea that impacts efficiency, speed, security and/or cost reduction in any part of the remittance cycle, from origin to destination, whether it is client-facing or not.
The RemTECH Awards Team invites registered participants of the Global Forum on Remittance, Investment, and Development (GFRID 2018) to vote in the first-ever industry vote. The winner will receive the Industry Choice Award. GFRID 2018 gathers Member States, international organizations, private sector, and civil society with interest in Asia-Pacific remittances to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — a substantial reflection of the remittance industry. Voting is open April 24th until 3pm of May 8th (Kuala Lumpur time), just a couple of hours before the RemTECH Awards Ceremony at 5:30pm. There, we will be presenting trophies to the Category Winners and announcing the winner of the Industry Choice Award.
Nearly 40 remittance innovators from all over the world submitted their entries. Our Judging Panel of nine industry experts used our Judging Rules & Criteria for six different categories: B2B Solution, Compliance Innovation, End-User Experience, Remittance Synergies, Remittance for Social Impact, and Technology Innovation. They have narrowed the selection to nine Category Winners and Award Mentions that will be included on the Industry Choice Award ballot.
Vote on blockchain
Because the RemTECH Awards is meant to bring remittance innovation forward, Yokip Consulting, with Horizon State technology, has developed a voting application that stores the completed ballots on blockchain. This will provide an auditable and transparent account of the process while maintaining anonymity. Only registered GFRID attendees may vote and the app will be verifying this with your email.
