Durango, CO – August 1, 2012 – Mercury®, a leading provider of payment processing and revenue generation solutions, has won the Gold Medallion and Payment Processor Vendor of Excellence awards from the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) for an unprecedented three years in a row.
Presented at the association’s annual RetailNOW Convention & Expo in Las Vegas, NV on July 31, the awards recognize leadership in retail technology across six key categories: Hardware Manufacturer, Software Application Developer, Technology Distributor, Payment Processor, Customer/ Reseller Support, and Consumables/ Supplies Provider. The RSPA awards are the only awards in the industry where resellers vote for their favorite vendors, with the best overall score in all categories determining the Gold Medallion winner.
“At Mercury, we’re so very proud to be recognized again by the RSPA and our reseller partners for innovation and commitment to excellence in the retail technology market,” said Matt Taylor, CEO of Mercury. “Our goal is, and always has been, to deliver unique, value-based solutions that help resellers, developers and retailers succeed. We were the first payment processor in the award’s thirty-year existence to win the Gold Medallion in 2010 but it’s an even greater honor this year. Thank you again to all the channel partners who work with us – we look forward to blazing more trails together.”
