The Oscars of the credit industry are the Credit Today Awards. Just like how your favourite actors and actresses fight for the golden statue of the Oscars, credit companies that give people financial power want to get Credit Today Awards. We are thrilled to announce that Peachy.co.uk has been nominated for 2 awards.
Alternative Lender of the Year Nomination (Consumer)
This is one of the most exciting nominations of the entire awards. This category is for lenders that are doing something different in the consumer space. Alternative lenders tend to have a different ethos and vision to traditional lenders than includes banks. Alternative lenders include online lenders and peer-to-peer lenders for example. We are thrilled with our nomination in this category because we believe that it shows our tenacity to provide a new service for our customers. To win this award would be incredible but we are also very happy to be nominated alongside some exciting brands that are changing how consumers interact with borrowing.
This award is based on how well the company is doing and how innovative the company is compared to its competition. Customer satisfaction is an important element of deciding whether the finalists should win the award and the performance of systems that process loans will also play a role in deciding this. This category is one of the most competitive categories because so many different types of alternative lenders have applied such as cheque cashing companies. We are delighted to be one of the finalists of this coveted award by fighting off stiff competition from other companies.
Best Use of Technology (Creditor)
This nomination is close to Peachy.co.uk’s heart because we pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking technology company that knows that the Internet is the key to personal finances. As more lenders realise the importance of digital when it comes to borrowing, Peachy has already worked really hard to set a standard that cannot be changed. In this category, there are other companies that are doing good work but we also think that our efforts stand out because of how we have pioneered technology within personal finance. This can be seen through our Facebook games that have energised many of our Facebook fans.
This category will be judged on how technology is used within the company to keep the company nimble and innovative. Judges will assess a wide variety of criteria to decide what makes technology usage stand out in a credit company. This is definitely going to be one of the most fiercely contested categories of the entire awards because of technology’s rising importance in the industry.
