SA’s PriceCheck launches tech & e-commerce awards

PriceCheck, South Africa’s comparison service, on Wednesday announced the launch of the PriceCheck Tech & E-Commerce awards.

Coinciding with its tenth birthday, the awards, set to run later this year, will be aimed at recognising outstanding South African tech and e-commerce businesses, and contributions to the industry.

As the South African e-commerce market gains maturity and consolidation is seen, it becomes prudent to shed light on achievers in the space. Retailers big and small, tech businesses enabling e-commerce, and individuals driving growth and change, will be showcased at the PriceCheck Tech & E-Commerce awards.

“Over the last ten years we have seen phenomenal growth in the e-commerce industry, in absolute numbers of buyers, and merchants. At the same time, we’ve seen merchants rise and fall, come and go. These awards present us with a great opportunity to reward those that have stood the test of time and offered consumers great choice over the years, as well as the newcomers to the industry. In addition, we’ve decided to recognise the enablers and disruptors too,” says PriceCheck founder & CEO, Kevin Tucker.

The awards platform & public nominations have been opened. On 4th July, the nominations closes & public voting starts and closes on 31 July. Shortlisted nominees will be announced on 15 August and the winners revealed on a date yet to be set on September.

Nominations and awards will be categorized as follows:

  1. Best Fintech Platform
  2. Best New Disruptive Technology
  3. Best Payment Service
  4. Best Mobile Shopping Experience
  5. Best Overall Shopping Experience
  6. Best Travel Booking Service
  7. Best On-Demand Service
  8. Best Online Financial Services Platform

  9. Best Small Online Business

  10. Best Online Classified Platform
  11. Best Marketplace Platform
  12. Best Delivery/Logistics Provider
  13. Best Customer Service
  14. Best Black Tech/E-Commerce Entrepreneur
  15. Best Female Tech/E-Commerce Entrepreneur
  16. Employer of the Year

In addition to the category awards, there will be a People’s Choice Award, based solely on public opinion and an Overall Winner chosen by the judges.

A focus for the 2016 awards will be rewarding outstanding Black and female entrepreneurs who are making an impact in the tech and e-commerce industries.

In November 2015, PriceCheck was acquired by its original founder, Kevin Tucker, and Click n Compare, from Naspers. With its newfound independence and revived drive for customer satisfaction, the PriceCheck Tech & E-Commerce awards are set to be inclusive and fair, based on public opinion and the expertise of a carefully-selected panel of judges.
