Bango is extremely proud to have been honored with a King’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade.
The King’s Awards are the most prestigious awards for UK headquartered businesses, recognising and celebrating business excellence. Winners are chosen based on a proven track record of outstanding success in innovation, international trade or sustainable development. His Majesty The King personally approves the recipients!
Founded in 1999 with a disruptive idea and global ambitions, Bango has grown significantly over the past 20+ years. Ray Anderson (now Executive Chair) and Anil Malhotra (now Chief Marketing Officer) started the business on the back of the prediction that consumers using mobile phones to access the internet and would stimulate ‘mobile commerce’ and set out to create infrastructure to enable this.
Today, online commerce and mobile commerce are one and the same and 25% of all retail transactions are conducted online. Bango has become a trusted and valuable partner for leading, online businesses all over the world including global brands such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google. Connecting more than 4.5 billion users in over 75 countries, international trade is vital to Bango success.
Bango plays an integral role in enabling online commerce. Its payment products are used by partners everywhere to allow consumers to buy the goods and services they want. This enables Bango partners to monetize their products and services globally, reach consumers they could not access through traditional payment methods and grow more quickly than they otherwise could. Similarly, Bango marketing technology, Bango Audiences, is used globally by businesses looking to focus their marketing efforts on consumers most likely to spend. Bango Audiences can help them find the consumers most likely to buy their products, regardless of their location.
Ray Anderson, Executive Chair, said: Receiving this King’s Award is a crowning achievement for Bango. Bango has developed a global business with customers, partners and employees based all over the world. Enabling international trade is integral to the Bango business model, so to achieve an award from His Majesty which is recognized globally is a truly special way of demonstrating that success. We know Bango customers are excited about the award too – we have already received many enquiries about The King and whether his own eCommerce activities will be using Bango technology!
