PARIS, July 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ingenico Group rewarded by Cielo for outstanding competitiveness and sustainability in Brazil

Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346-ING), global leader in seamless payment, today announced that Cielo, Latin America's largest payment services provider, rewarded Ingenico Group in Brazil for its competitive attitude and commitment to sustainability.

Cielo launched a competition this year to distinguish its most outstanding strategic partners, inviting more than 40 payment industry partners to compete in four categories: Quality, Responsiveness, Competitive Attitude and Sustainability. The initiative was driven by Cielo's desire to recognize the central role of partners in its success and leadership in the Brazilian market.

Ingenico Group in Brazil won the top prize for two out of four categories: the "Competitive Attitude" award illustrates Ingenico's outstanding agility, customer focus, commitment to partnership building, transparency and overall excellence. Ingenico Brazil also won the "Sustainability" category thanks to its commitment to manufacture components across the entire production chain and the creation of local jobs that result from this policy.

"We are very proud that Cielo has recognized Ingenico Group for its commitment and contribution as high quality partner," said Oscar Bello, Ingenico Group's EVP for Latin America. "We have been closely supporting Cielo since 1995, and have consistently worked to deliver innovative payment solutions which are complemented by local support, application development, and after-sales services that are all fully aligned with local market needs."
