The winners of the 2022 Credit & Collection Technology Awards winners have been announced following a live in-person event yesterday (Thursday 17th November) at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.

The awards are the flagship event for innovational technological professionals working in credit and collections and the fifth annual event honoured the UK’s technological innovators, celebrating outstanding achievement across 22 hotly contested categories.

For this year’s technology Awards programme, the judges shortlisted 106 entries from 72 companies. The Awards were judged by a panel of eighteen independent judges – many of whom play an important role in industry associations including UK Finance, CSA, FLA, and MALG alongside independent specialist consultants.

The Awards were presented by comedian Scott Bennett who was supported by Voice of God Jenny Pink. There were three double winners Saascoms, TransUnion and Ecospend on their debut at the awards.

Other notable wins were for LendingMetrics who scooped the Credit Reference solution award, winning their sixth win at the awards in consecutive years, whilst SmartSearch won the Compliance & Regulation for the fifth year in a row.

A full review of the Awards will be available as a booklet reviewing the Awards data will be available within the next month. In addition as a result of this year’s Awards, the 2022 Top 20 Company Power List will be announced in the coming weeks.
