On the day after the award ceremony for THE VENDIES competition there was a palpable air of celebration at SUZOHAPP. The company has indeed won the coveted award in the "Best Payment System" category, beating two other finalist companies to the prize. SUZOHAPP qualified as category winner thanks to two of its products whose strength lies in innovation: the Currenza C2 and WorldKey.

Carles Aleixandre, SUZOHAPP's Executive VP & General Manager for the global Vending market, explains: "We are very honoured to have won as prestigious a competition as THE VENDIES, a key event for the British vending machine market. Our mission is to provide the best money handling solutions and this recognition is something to be proud of for us because it shows that our commitment to developing innovative products and services is appreciated by the market." Nick Norris, SUZOHAPP's Sales and Technical Manager UK and Ireland continues: "Innovation is certainly part of our DNA, our Research & Development team is always working to develop solutions that can prepare us for the future. This win makes us proud of what we have done so far and is an incentive for us to continue in this direction, in order to achieve even bigger goals."

The competition, which is organised by Datateam Business Media in association with AVA, EDWCA and Vending International magazine, aims to recognise and reward the industry's best performers. SUZOHAPP's victory in the "Best Payment System" category is an indication that the company's potential has been recognised, as it wins an ever bigger market share day after day, thanks to the undisputed quality of its products in the cash and cashless money handling sector.

Among these money handling products, the Currenza C2 is the only coin changer with 6 tubes, equipped with a PRP (Payout Redundancy Protection) system, able to guarantee high levels of efficiency and increased levels of security. The cassette has 6 tubes and 3 independent motors, which ensure great reliability in the delivery of monies and maximum flexibility in the configuration of the cassette's tubes, thus rendering the automatic Vending machine more independent and secure.

With regard to cashless systems, SUZOHAPP offers the widest and most complete range on the market. WorldKey, developed by the Engineering team of RFTech Srl, includes 5 different versions and 3 different read heads capable of accepting keys, cards, tags and stickers. All systems are versatile and reliable and characterised by safety standards rated top of their category. WorldKey supports all the major vending protocols (Executive, MDB, BDV) and is already equipped for NFC payments. The range is constantly evolving and also includes a wide selection of accessories for programming, the collection of audit data and recharge of payment media. Recently, it has expanded further with HAPPY, the new practical and compact payment support system that meets the needs of operators and end customers, thanks to extensive customisation options.
