Troy, MI (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Billhighway, foremost provider of cloud-based financial management solutions for nonprofit organizations, is proud to announce its CIO, Steve Robert, has been chosen as one of Crain’s Detroit Business Top CIOs. Robert started as Billhighway’s first employee in 2003, with one task in mind: to create the world’s first financial platform capable of straight-through processing, hoping to revolutionize the industry.
Crain’s Detroit Business CIO Awards recognize the top technology executives in metro Detroit. The winners of this award were chosen by a panel of executives and CIOs, based on the criteria of reducing costs, driving revenue and mitigating risks. The awards, announced in the August 6, 2012 issue, will precede Crain’s inaugural CIO event, “Transformations in Process: Innovation and the CIO” in September.
Robert has led development as Billhighway continued to scale the business – designing a more robust distributed SOA platform architecture to support significant year-over-year growth. He has forged strategic partnerships, adding capacity through off-shore development efforts, expanding regional data centers and deploying technologies and systems we now refer to as “cloud.” Most recently, Robert has championed R&D efforts resulting in new product channel, partner integrations, as well as prepaid card solutions and mobile applications, further positioning Billhighway as an industry leader.
Robert ensures that Billhighway’s platform uses the most reliable, trusted, robust technology to mitigate security risks for the company and its clients. “BillhighwaySAFE” features include PCI compliance, McAfee Secure, Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode, VeriSign Secure, Type II SSAE 16 compliance and more. This type of security is particularly critical for Billhighway’s nonprofit clients who aren’t able to provide this high level of security themselves.
Notes Vince Thomas, Billhighway’s Founder and CEO, “What is remarkable about Steve’s professional contributions is his ability to shift gears, combining both business and technology acumen with the necessary leadership to support the various stages of the organization’s growth. As a result of his knowledge and leadership, Billhighway has achieved double-digit annual revenue growth and has become a leader in financial performance optimization.”
