Leading digital payment solutions provider Netcetera has bested 44 other companies at the culmination of the Digital Transformation (DX) Award 2021 organised by the Swiss Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SwissCham) in Singapore, in collaboration with Deloitte, and supported by PRecious Communications and other partners. Netcetera has demonstrated business agility in payment services through its 3-D Secure (3DS) solution suite, which offers end-to-end integrated authentication.
“The DX Award 2021 has evolved to become a great avenue for celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship in the ASEAN region since it was introduced last year. This year, we received 45 submissions from across the region, all of which were outstanding in their own right,” said Andreas Enderlin, Chairman of the Digital Transformation Award and Managing Partner of Hugo Capital Partners. “We would like to extend our congratulations to Netcetera and all the finalists for the different subcategories, and we hope to continue inspiring and empowering more companies in the digital new normal through this initiative.”
The DX Award 2021 featured eight subcategories this year: Cybersecurity; Financial Services; Advanced Manufacturing; Healthcare; Insurance; Building & infrastructure; B2C; and Business Services. Among the pool of 45 submissions, 22 projects were selected and showcased at the recent virtual subcategory pitching nights. Shortlisted participants presented their projects in front of a highly distinguished jury, peers, and selected guests during the online live pitching sessions held across three nights. The projects were evaluated based on clearly defined benchmarks (from Deloitte’s Digital Maturity Model) — Customer; Strategy; Technology; Operations; and Organisation & Culture — as well as the public’s votes.
SaladStop! x ADA (B2C), EyRis (Healthcare), IDV CONCEPTS ASIA (Advanced Manufacturing), Speedwork Autocare Indonesia (Business Services), Netcetera (Cybersecurity), Siemens (Building & infrastructure), Allianz (Insurance), and BIZZI (Financial Services) emerged as the finalists for the respective subcategories at the Business Excellence Awards: Final Award Night. They were pitted against each other during the final ceremony, where Netcetera emerged as the overall winner of the Digital Transformation Award.
“In response to business challenges brought about by the pandemic, Netcetera was inspired to develop an end-to-end product based on EMV® 3DS and the SAFe business agility framework to drive enhanced business agility, while allowing customers to adopt new product specs and compliance requirements faster than ever before,” said Dr. Thomas Fromherz, Fellow, Netcetera.
Hanspeter Jsler, Key Account Manager at Netcetera’s Singapore office added: “We are greatly humbled to have won DX Award 2021, and this is just a testament of Netcetera’s continuous commitment towards the pursuit of business innovation.”
DX Award 2021 is sponsored by industry leaders Acronis, DSV, Entsia, Inventa Technologies, SIX group, and Zuhlke, and supported by Singapore government agencies, American and European Chambers.
Last year, SwissCham received 43 DX Award applications from startups, SMEs and MNCs from various sectors.
