Heartland Payment Systems Recognized As One Of America’s Top Technology Innovators On 2012 InformationWeek 500

Stocks in this article: HPY

Heartland Payment Systems ® (NYSE: HPY), one of the nation’s largest payments processors and a FORTUNE 1000 company, today announced that it was ranked #112, an increase of 83 spots, in the 2012 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. This marks the sixth consecutive year that Heartland has made the list for its innovation in payments and information technology.

Heartland was honored for atlas, its homegrown sales enablement/hybrid CRM application that streamlines and enhances the sales process. A Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform built for all major web browsers and tablets, especially the iPad ®, atlas delivers a simplified and improved customer buying experience with on-demand proposal generation, automated underwriting and increased customer security through encrypting all personal identifiable information at the point of collection. Heartland completed the project from inception to delivery in only 12 months, all through internal resources that allowed cross-matrix business owner requirements to be quickly synthesized for accurate feature delivery.

“Being named to the InformationWeek 500 list for the sixth year in a row is a testament to Heartland’s commitment to providing advanced technology and tools that empower our sales force and staff to better serve our merchant customers,” said Bob Carr, Heartland’s chairman and chief executive officer. “ atlas has already been adopted by the majority of our 900-member national sales force and is a catalyst behind our recent record-setting productivity levels. As we embark on an aggressive recruitment initiative, tools like atlas will be integral in helping our new hires hit the ground running.”

“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovations were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek editor in chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches - new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”
