Xoom Wins 2016 Tech & Innovation Award from San Francisco Business Times
Today the San Francisco Business Times announced that Xoom, a PayPal service, is a recipient of the 2016 Tech & Innovation Award. This annual award celebrates Bay Area companies that are reimagining how business is done and most importantly, transforming every area of technology through innovation.
Over the last 15 years, we at Xoom have been focused on building a leading digital money transfer services company that has shaken up antiquated systems of sending remittances. We’ve pioneered innovative ways to make sending money to loved ones around the world faster, more secure, and more convenient.
We’ve helped customers in the U.S. send money, pay bills, and reload prepaid mobile phones for family and friends in over 50 countries. Earlier this year, we announced our expansion in Africa and Europe, as well as plans to launch our service to Cuba later this year. We will continue to work hard on our goal of making the movement and management of money easier for people all over the world.
We’re proud of the work accomplished thus far and congratulate our fellow award recipients who are also tackling real-world problems through high-tech solutions!
