Everyware, a leading contactless payments and customer engagement solutions company, has been named a silver winner in the Most Innovative Product of the Year – SMB category in Best in Biz Awards 2021, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.
2021 marked the 11th annual Best in Biz Awards and, following the havoc wreaked by the global pandemic, resoundingly confirmed that American business is back and stronger than ever before. The 11th annual program saw intense competition among more than 700 impressively strong entries from public and private companies of all sizes and spanning all geographic regions and industries in the U.S. and Canada, ranging from some of the best known global brands to the most innovative start-ups and irrepressible local companies. This year’s judges were impressed with the winning companies’ resilience and adaptability that allowed them to turn the challenges of the past 20 months into remarkable growth numbers, their exemplary dedication to their customers in matters small and large, and particularly, many winners’ efforts to maintain and deepen their commitment to the environment and local communities.
“The Everyware team is honored to be recognized alongside distinguished fellow category winners showing that contactless payments and customer engagement is such an important innovation,” said Everyware Founder and CEO Larry Talley. “It’s rewarding to know that top industry executives agreed that our product is forever changing the way people pay and communicate.”
Since the program’s inception in 2011, winners in Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled each year from some of the most respected national and local newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Combining top editors’ and reporters’ unparalleled experience and expertise with the objectivity inherent in the journalistic ethos and further enhanced by the breadth of outlets represented, Best in Biz Awards judging panels are uniquely able to determine the best of the best from among the hundreds of competitive entries. The 2021 judging panel included, among others, writers from Associated Press, Barron’s, Consumer Affairs, Inc., USA Today and Wired.
