ATLANTA, April 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- InComm, a leading prepaid product and payments technology company, today announced it has been named Innovative Business Partner of the Year by Speedway LLC, one of the largest convenience retail chains in the nation. For this year's partner awards, 20 companies were nominated across four categories – Innovative Partner, New Business Partner, Retail Support Partner and Retail Product Partner.
"Our prepaid program is an important part of our business, and InComm has continuously worked with us to keep us ahead of the curve in that regard," said Tony Kenney, Speedway's president. "Their products, promotions and technology provide value to our customers. InComm always brings something new to the table, making them a perfect fit for our Innovative Business Partner of the Year Award."
InComm and Speedway have been partners for 15 years, one of the longest partnerships in InComm's history, and have worked together to grow both companies through innovative ideas, products and solutions. Throughout the partnership, InComm has worked closely with Speedway to make sure the convenience chain has a best-in-class prepaid program across its more than 2,700 locations. Complementary technology solutions – like InComm's Smart Auto-Replenishment System and barcode-based payments – have similarly kept Speedway on the leading edge of a competitive and fast-moving channel.
Integrating InComm's innovative fraud-prevention measures has helped Speedway mitigate loss and ensure customer satisfaction. To keep Speedway informed of the latest trends in the industry, InComm also hosts two summits per year on top of weekly conference calls and quarterly business reviews.
"The respect and appreciation of our partners is the most important KPI we have," said Jerry Cutler, Vice President of Sales, InComm. "We strive to be a partner they can rely on to consistently bring new ideas and products that help them grow their business. Receiving an award like this from a company with as great a reputation as Speedway lets us know we are on the right track. It has been a pleasure teaming up with the great people at Speedway to create amazing consumer experiences. This is truly a humbling honor."
