ViewSonic® Named Outstanding New Entrant In Fourth Annual Paybefore Awards


WALNUT, Calif. - Paybefore has chosen ViewSonic’s® Finch Club Dealer/Distributor Incentive Program as a Paybefore Awards Outstanding New Entrant in the Best Card Design category with its partnership with American Express Incentive Services (AEISTM). The Paybefore Awards, now in their fourth year, are the most prestigious recognition of excellence in the worldwide prepaid and stored value card industry. They are presented annually by Prepaid Media, whose Paybefore publications are the leading source of industry information for the global prepaid community.

“We are delighted and honored to have been named one of the recipients of this year’s Paybefore Awards”, said Melanie Beecher, Channel Manager for ViewSonic Americas. “Our first priority is to work with our resellers to help incentivize the increase of their profit margins and make the best, well-informed decisions for their company’s growth. Our partnership with AEIS has strengthened the reach of Finch Club and allows more resellers to benefit from the specialized product training and discounts we provide. We are so pleased to receive this recognition alongside our partner AEIS.”

The ViewSonic Finch Club Dealer/Distributor Incentive Program was selected by a panel of five industry experts who served as judges for this year’s competition, which included a record number of entries from around the world. This is the first year Paybefore Awards included the distinction of Outstanding New Entrant, which recognizes programs the judges found particularly valuable, innovative or worthy. The Paybefore Awards judges bestowed this distinction in only 10 of 16 categories of competition.

“Paybefore applauds the Outstanding New Entrants that are offering innovative prepaid programs that benefit consumers, governments and businesses,” said Marilyn Bochicchio, Paybefore CEO and chair of the judging panel. “The ViewSonic Finch Club Dealer / Distributor Incentive Program was recognized among tough competition for its progressive/effective use of prepaid products.”

“ViewSonic’s Finch Club Dealer/Distributor Incentive Program was the perfect candidate for the kind of flexible rewards that our patented* DirectSpendSM line-up offers,” said Karen Montaug, Account Executive, AEIS. “We are proud to share in this recognition and to continue to work with ViewSonic to reward and incentivize extraordinary performance.”

ViewSonic’s Finch Club program aims to provide support for all members of the supply chain and to enhance customers’ experience through knowledge sharing. By providing the Persona® MAX Card from AEIS’ DirectSpend line up as an incentive in partnership with AEIS, ViewSonic offers a true rewards experience for its recipients, with the choice of over 190 popular shopping destinations. With over 1,000 participants in ViewSonic’s Finch Club from launch of the new Card, the incentive has proved overwhelmingly favorable with resellers.

In addition to rewarding performance, ViewSonic’s Finch Club makes product updates, 24/7 VIP support, discounts / promotions and free exclusive webinar trainings easily accessible to ViewSonic’s partners. Members also receive access to ViewSonic resources 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the company’s Web portal and a toll-free Finch Club number.

The ViewSonic Finch Club Dealer / Distributor Incentive Program will be honored during the Paybefore Awards ceremony on Feb. 22 at the Prepaid Expo USA.
