Judo Payments, a provider of simple, secure payment solutions for mobile apps, has won praise and recognition at this year’s Appster awards, an event that celebrates the best and most innovative developments in the world of mobile apps. judo received a highly commended nod by the voting panel in the “Best use of API” category, beating out many applicants for the honourable and much coveted mention.
The Appster awards ceremony was hosted by App World Europe. The Appster competition attracted more than 450 entries and judges were asked to select 70 finalists for fourteen award categories.
Judo Payments was praised for its secure and simplified payment platform, which enables app users to pay for a service within the app by asking users to enter relevant details to process card entry. In addition, judo’s technology that processes payments in one server call along with its in-app intelligence to recognize the card type as well as reduce card data entry errors makes judo’s API the leading platform in the mobile payments space.
Michael De Jongh, VP Sales and Marketing at judo said: “We are thrilled to have been highly commended in the best use of an API category. It’s a prestigious honour to be singled out for our innovation by the Appster judges, giving us greater recognition and prestige within the community and proving we are ‘best in classes in the world of mobile payment processing.”
