DPS Client Achievement Awards

Visa DPS is excited to be announcing the winners of the 2016 Visa DPS Client Achievement Awards at the DPS Users' Conference in Denver, Colorado, March 6 – 9, 2017. Established in 2015, this award program has fast become a highly anticipated and celebrated annual event.

With its inauguration at the October 2015 conference, the Awards recognize excellence among the highest performing Visa DPS issuer processors in key categories that drive business growth as well as reinforce the partnership between DPS and clients, and celebrate the fact that programs that process with DPS perform better.

With the addition of Credit to complement DPS Prepaid and Debit programs, this comprehensive awards spectrum also welcomes two new award categories – acknowledging greatest gains and adoption of emerging payments — to the 2016 campaign. In addition, the Innovators category invites the DPS client creative to nominate their forward-thinking strategies and game-changing initiatives.
