FinTech Breakthrough Awards Program Names Melio "Best B2B

Melio, a leading B2B payments platform for small businesses, has been selected as the winner of the "Best B2B Payments Platform" award in the 7th annual FinTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by FinTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global fintech market.

"Melio is honored to be recognized by the FinTech Breakthrough Awards as a leading B2B payments platform," said Melio Chief Business Officer Prashant Gandhi. "Small businesses have three pain points – manual back-office work, cash flow crunch, and limited time to learn any technologies. I am very proud of our team for building a solution that addresses these issues. We are also thankful to the financial institutions, software providers, and merchant acquirers who are embedding Melio within their digital interface, enabling their small business customers to enjoy a fully native B2B payments experience in their platform of choice."

Melio provides an integrated payments solution that allows small businesses to quickly and seamlessly pay vendors and get paid – helping with cash flow needs, eliminating late payment costs, and giving businesses back valuable time. Melio's payments infrastructure is designed to be embedded into other platforms, allowing customers to reap the benefits of its cutting-edge technology without leaving their preferred platform.

"While small business owners enjoy the perks of being their own boss, setting their own hours and doing what they love, they typically also face limited resources, lack of capital, and competition with more established companies. Add keeping track of bills and payments to the mix and the result is usually a big hassle," said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough. "The flexibility and simplicity offered by Melio's breakthrough payments platform is extremely valuable for small businesses, which do not employ large finance teams or CFOs to handle their bill pay. We are thrilled to congratulate the Melio team on being our 2023 'Best B2B Payments Platform' award winner!"

The FinTech Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize the fintech innovators, leaders, and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Digital Banking, Personal Finance, Lending, Payments, Investments, RegTech, InsurTech, and many more. The 2023 FinTech Breakthrough Award program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from across the globe.

In addition to the FinTech Breakthrough Award, Melio has recently been recognized by CB Insights' Fintech 250, the Financial Technology Report' Top 100 Financial Technology Companies, and by Forbes' Fintech 50 as a leading B2B payments company.

Globenewswire | April 05, 2023

Ken Holloway is the new owner of Minuteman Press in Myrtle Beach. He purchased the franchise from retiring owners Anne and Kevin Myers, who had owned the shop since 2013. Minuteman Press in Myrtle Beach is located at 501 Plaza, 1772 US-501, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. Ken says, “I love Myrtle Beach and have been coming here since 1985. My wife Anna and I bought our second home here eight years ago, and we moved to Myrtle Beach full-time in March of 2022.” On the purchase of the business, Ken shares, “Printing and marketing is everywhere in Myrtle Beach – on cars, signs, menus, billboards, flyers, coupon books, apparel, and more. In Myrtle Beach, we are unique in the sense that most businesses need to market to appeal to local residents as well as the high number of tourists that visit us each year. Tourists are only here for a short time so capturing their attention with marketing and advertising is critical.” He adds, “We are excited to be expanding the business. We have added two additional graphic designers and have purchased new equipment. We have the ability to put your logo or message on just about anything.” Before joining the Minuteman Press franchise family, Ken was already a successful small business owner in the automotive industry. He says, “I currently own four automotive and two big truck franchises throughout the Carolinas. Our home base is in Columbia and our son will be taking over those businesses so I can focus on Minuteman Press in Myrtle Beach, which I am really excited about.” Ken concludes, “I have been a small business owner selling to other small businesses for many years. The established client base of small businesses up and down the Grand Strand and the ability to call on new businesses in a growing and thriving community is what drew interest in Minuteman Press Myrtle Beach. I also love that I’ll be able to get even more involved in the local community.” About Minuteman Press Minuteman Press International is the number one rated business marketing and printing franchise that offers world class training and unparalleled ongoing local support.
