"The ADVANCE Award winners illustrate the tremendous teamwork between fintech vendors, customer companies and the third-party advisors that make technology work as envisioned, while also reaping the benefits of its innovation."

Elavon, a leading global payments provider and subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (USB: NYSE), has been named a Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) FinTech ADVANCE Award recipient in the inaugural year of the awards. TAG FinTech ADVANCE winners represent established companies with a connection to Georgia and provide proven innovative solutions that bring measurable results, TAG said when announcing the award winners.

Among Elavon’s many recent innovations, the award nomination features the talech tablet point-of-sale system which helps small to medium-sized businesses simplify their operations and gather deep analytics into their sales trends. Business owner Jordan Segal talks here* about his experience with Elavon’s talech solution at his Nest Café in northern Atlanta.

“We received many qualified candidates for the first-ever TAG FinTech ADVANCE Awards,” said Sean Banks, partner of TTV Capital and TAG FinTech society chair. “The ADVANCE Award winners illustrate the tremendous teamwork between fintech vendors, customer companies and the third-party advisors that make technology work as envisioned, while also reaping the benefits of its innovation.”

Elavon is a global company, but its Georgia ties run deep. The company was founded in Atlanta in 1991, and its headquarters, senior leadership and technology research teams are based there. In all, the company has more 650 employees in the city, including a subset of whom work in “The Grove,” Elavon’s innovation hub known for creating industry-leading payment solutions.

Guy Harris, president of North America for Elavon, said, “Being recognized by our FinTech peers in Atlanta is a testament to the hard work of our product teams and our commitment to providing the best payments products and services for our customers. As the industry continues to evolve, we, along with other organizations in our industry, must continue to develop innovative solutions that keep businesses growing and thriving here in the U.S. and around the globe.”
