The Seventh annual SBC awards took place on the 9th December with a small number of guests attending the physical event in Stamford bridge and over 800 guests tuning in virtually. W2 ended up winning Fraud and Compliance Solution of the Year!
As the end of 2020 quickly approaches, it is all too easy to look back on this year as one filled with negatives and barriers. The pandemic clearly made 2020 one of the most challenging years for businesses to continue their growth plans and day to day office based operations.
For W2, the pandemic meant that along with most of the world, our business had to react and adapt to the changing landscape. The main challenge was looking for different and more creative ways to continue on a growth journey and reach our target audience.
With a reimagined mission, vision, and position and continual transformative change taking place in the business, the W2 team understood it was time to take the focus away from the ‘check’, and focus fully on the technology that enables the removal of complexity from the compliance process. The W2 platform has seen significant developments through 2020 with the additions of multiple features to continue to simplify the compliance process for businesses. Just one of the notable additions is the brand new W2 ‘Workflow Builder’, which allows clients and prospects to create completely custom workflows from the library of W2 products, allowing for a fully customisable solution depending on specific business needs.
W2 supports business across many global markets and multiple regulatory jurisdictions but when it comes to our gaming clients, the ability to adapt to the changing landscape is business critical. A single platform providing technology that can adapt to this in real time has helped our clients grow and leads directly to recognition and awards such as this.
Everything we do here at W2 is driven by our mission statement; complexity should never be a barrier to business. As we look to 2021 and beyond, there are even more exciting developments planned at W2 to make the offering even stronger and allow our clients to be as successful as possible.
W2 CEO & Founder Warren Russell commented: “Winning this award is really a culmination of a team effort at W2, I am so proud of the work done and the positivity of the team during 2020. Every single member of the team has knuckled down and adapted to what has been an uncertain time for any business. This is just the start for even more growth at W2, next year looks to be even more exciting for us with some huge developments and partnerships on the horizon that will strengthen our offering to existing clients and partners. Our client success is at the heart of everything we do, Roll on 2021! A special thanks also goes out to Ras and the team at SBC for organising the event in the most challenging of circumstances.”
