In recognition of its capacity for innovation, SIBS has been singled out over the years to receive several awards: Portugal Digital Awards
In 2016, MB WAY won a Mention of Honour as the “Best Digital Product” at the 1st edition of the Portugal Digital Awards.
This initiative aimed to reward unique and innovative projects that stand out in the area of digital transformation.
In 2013, MULTIBANCO was given the Inclusion Award in the “Accessibilities” area by the Social Inclusion Resources Centre (CRID) of the Leiria Polytechnic Institute.
Computerworld & CIO
In 2013, the “Viva Parking” solution, developed by OTLIS (Lisbon Region Transport Operators) and EMEL in partnership with SIBS, was awarded a prize in the “Transport” category for the IDG Communications initiative that aims to single out the most innovative Information Technology projects in Portugal, Spain and Latin America. The “Viva Parking” card offers citizens a more convenient and secure way to pay for parking, which can be easily recharged at any ATM, allowing parking in zones with parking meters without having to worry about carrying coins.
In recent years, MULTIBANCO has been singled out by SuperBrands as a brand of Portuguese excellence. This award acknowledges the dedication of the SIBS team to promoting quality of life for Portuguese people.
Created in 1985, the MULTIBANCO service is always there for Portuguese people. It constantly seeks to offer new features to contribute to a better quality of life.
European eGovernment Awards
After being made available in 2008, the MULTIBANCO ATM network Hunting License operation was awarded the Prize for the best online European Administrative Service in 2009.
Developed for the National Forestry Authority, the award-winning functionality offers the possibility to obtain or renew a hunting license. Hunters only need a Hunter’s Card and taxpayer number to allow a national or regional licence to be issued on the spot. The measure, which is part of the Simplex administrative modernisation programme, simplifies the annual licensing process, which until now had to be carried out at the offices of the Directorate-General for Forest Resources or with Hunting Organisations.
The European eGovernment Awards are a European Commission initiative aimed at rewarding and stimulating electronic innovation, and identifying best practices for the use of information and communication technologies by European public authorities.
Launched in 2001, MB NET received the award given by the E-commerce and Interactive Advertising Association (ACEPI), consisting of the recognition of the best work being done in Portugal in the fields of e-commerce and digital marketing.
Given that security is a critical factor for online shoppers, the innovative and completely free MB NET service came about based on this concern. It offers secure Internet payments with any credit or debit bank card, with any merchant.
In addition to the awards, SIBS also holds several certifications that make sure we accomplish our mission of contribute to social well-being, by promoting efficiency in financial and similar services, specifically in the payments sector.
