About the Impact Awards
Recognizing the spirit of innovation
The FIS Impact Awards recognize organizations that are using FIS technology or services in innovative ways to better serve their customers and drive tangible business results. In its fifth year, the annual awards program is independently judged by leading industry analyst and research group Celent and is open to FIS clients and partners based in North America, the United Kingdom, France and Germany.
For each of the winning entries, FIS makes a $10,000 donation to a charitable organization chosen by the client through the FIS Foundation.
