Simon Dorsen, Director of Gaming at OKTO, said: “In such a trying time for businesses all over the world, celebrating successes can really help bring us together. We’re so proud of our team and our mobile-first payment solutions”.
“Like many other businesses, 2020 has seen the OKTO team quickly adapt to a largely remote working environment — but it hasn’t stopped us on our continued journey towards global success. Not only have we been recognised as finalists, but our team has continued to improve the overall user-experience and functionalities of our product this year. Plus, within this period we’ve managed to successfully onboard an impressive roster of new clients, and consistently grow our workforce. “
