"We knew with the EMV liability shift last October, we needed to do something to help businesses of all sizes tackle EMV implementations quickly and cost effectively."

Elavon, a leading global payments provider and subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp, has been voted the People’s Choice Stevie Award Winner for Favorite New Product for its Commerce SDK solution, a software development kit that enables businesses to implement a secure payment solution into their point-of-sale application.

Commerce SDK in May won a Bronze award in the New Product or Service of the Year category for Electronic Commerce Solution in the 14th Annual American Business Awards (Stevie Awards), one of the nation’s premier business awards programs. That honor meant Commerce SDK was automatically included in voting for the People’s Choice award for Favorite New Product.

Commerce SDK enables merchants to securely integrate EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) certification into their payment platforms. The kit combines Elavon’s global payment processing with comprehensive, layered security components, including an EMV chip terminal, encryption and tokenization.

“This recognition is a huge honor for Elavon and its Commerce SDK solution,” said Wally Mlynarski, head of global product and innovation for Elavon. “We knew with the EMV liability shift last October, we needed to do something to help businesses of all sizes tackle EMV implementations quickly and cost effectively.”

More than 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to the Stevie Awards this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. About 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to pick the winners.
