The deadline for entries into the 2020 Credit & Collections Technology Awards has just two weeks over to go, with submissions required by Thursday 2nd July. 

The Awards are powered by Credit Connect and judged by an independently selected panel from across the industry, who have the enviable task of celebrating the best and greatest industry innovations.

This year new judges have joined the independent judging panel, which includes industry professionals from Finance Lending Association (FLA), UK Finance, British Business Bank and the Credit Services Association (CSA). These judges are joined by heads from major industry associations and leading independent specialists. Click here to view this year’s judging panel.

Becoming a finalist provides numerous PR opportunities whilst winning an award is a symbol of achievement, an endorsement of success and enhances your credibility and standing in the eyes of your peers and customers. The Awards prides itself on providing a unique and transparent judging scheme, with entrants able to ask for a performance review post-event providing further marketing collateral.

The Awards are FREE to enter with no late entry fees. Along with the usual range of highly-contested categories, there are some new categories which recognise innovation and best practice.

Firms can enter as many of the categories as they wish., and where possible, can enter within a partnership with other companies. All shortlisted and winning companies are allocated points that qualify entrants to potentially join the Top 20 Innovation Power Company list for 2020 which will be announced at the end of November.

The fourth annual Awards is scheduled to be held at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on Thursday 19th November, however, if social restrictions still apply in the UK then the winners will be announced through a live webinar on the same date.

Colin White Founding Director of Credit Connect Media which facilitates the Awards process said “Technology has now become an even more important factor as the coronavirus pandemic lockdown outbreak impacts the industry’s working patterns and stretching self-servicing options to the limit.”

“It is an unprecedented and uncertain time for businesses everywhere, with the lending and collections spaces being no different in having to change the way they work to continue serving their customers.

“These Awards provide a unique opportunity for the fintech lending and collections sectors to celebrate and recognise excellence”
