People on the Move: Ukash, Queen’s Awards for Enterprise (May 2013)
For the third consecutive year, Ukash, a London-based prepaid voucher provider, has been honored by the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for its contribution to international trade. The International Trade award recognizes U.K. businesses that have delivered substantial growth in overseas earnings and improved levels of commercial success globally. The award reinforces Ukash’s sustained commitment to empowering cash consumers in the online world, according to the company.
With substantial investment made in the last year in the creation of a dedicated, multilingual call center and marketing initiatives to extend its reach to more consumers globally, Ukash has increased its acceptance in economies that are cash-driven, where there isn’t a strong banking infrastructure or where there is a large community that does not have access to traditional banking and credit facilities, such as migrant communities.
