Many spring breakers headed to Vegas to relax and unwind, splashing in the pool with an umbrella drink in hand. Archelon Enclosures also headed to Vegas but for a different purpose… to attend the Electronic Transactions Association’s (ETA) TRANSACT14 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center. Although we didn’t need our sunscreen, the show was filled with “HOT” new topics and companies. The event had thousands of attendees from over 1,000 companies in the global payment and transactions industry and it was exciting to discover what is new in the world of electronic transactions. Keynote speakers included Ariel Barden, VP of Product Management, Payments at Google, Bill Sheedy, Executive Vice President, Corporate Strategy, M&A, Government Relations and Europe at Visa, and Paul Galant, Chief Executive Officer at VeriFone.
“This was my first year attending TRANSACT14” said Debi Besmer, Managing Partner of Archelon Enclosures, “The trade show floor was full of diverse solutions and new technology. I was particularly inspired by a Donation App called eGivings.”
eGivings is geared towards non-profit organizations who want to take accepting donations to the next level and step into the world of mobile technology. eGivings’ products include text-to-give features, an app with features that work as donation kiosks, and an assortment of other features. Non-profit organizations have already begun to join the trend in the use of mobile technology to enhance their organizations, and eGivings is yet another way that these types of organizations can use electronic transactions to further their causes.

Despite the fact that Archelon Enclosures wasn’t splashing in a pool or sipping on a drink with an umbrella decoration, we did enjoy our time in Vegas at TRANSACT14, powered by ETA. See you all next year!
