PayIt Named Finalist for AWS' 2016 City on a Cloud Innovation Challenge

Post by Tyler Randel on June 21th, 2016

Out of 200 applicants nationwide, only 19 companies were named finalists in this year's AWS City on a Cloud(CoaC) Innovation Challenge.

PayIt’s cloud-based platform for delivering government financial transactions stood above the rest, according to the panel of judges, including Cordell Schachet, CTO of New York City’s DOT and Regina Hopper, President and CEO of ITS America.  PayIt's delivers a time-saving, consolidated payment platform to citizens while removing the hassle of dragged out installation. By putting the government systematic challenge in the hands of the citizens, transacting has never been easier.

 

The CoaC recognizes companies that help state and local governments “simplify IT workloads and enable next generation citizen services.” PayIt was featured finalist in the Partners in Innovation category, which is given to govtech partners who have deployed an innovative solution to solve a government challenge.

 

The City on a Cloud Grand Prizes will be announced June 21st, with 4 Grand Prize winners receiving $25,000 in AWS credits. Check out the link below to see this year’s finalists:
