Troy, MI (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
Billhighway’s Prepaid MasterCard® program has been selected as a 2014 Paybefore Awards winner in the Head of the Class category. The program, launched in 2012, is a way for college fraternity and sorority students to better manage their chapter expenses. Billhighway proudly shares this honor with partners MasterCard, First Covenant Bank (FCB) and Galileo Processing, who helped make bill paying easier for thousands of students nationwide. Billhighway is one of three winners in its category, exhibiting the best use of prepaid functionality for delivering financial services to the youth/student/campus market.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized on a national level for our highly customizable and personalized prepaid card program,” said John Schelske, Chief Operating Officer at Billhighway. “Our clients asked for an easier, safer and more flexible alternative to writing checks and we delivered.”
Not surprisingly, check usage is on the decline, according to a newly published survey by Boston Fed. The use of debit, credit and prepaid cards accounts for 50% of all spend in the country, far surpassing paper-based and electronic payments.
Billhighway is a contender to be named “Best in Category” at the 2014 Paybefore Awards ceremony, held during the All Payments Expo in Las Vegas on March 4th. “Sixth Judge Voting” is now open through February 3rd and serves as a chance for the public to vote on who takes home the top honors. These votes will be combined with the five judges’ picks to determine Best-in-Category honorees. Vote once per day on the PayBefore website.
