WHATEVER IT TAKES
Honored on how our dedication to being the leading online payment gateway in the Middle East has been recognized by various partners and awarding bodies.
Just very recently, industry-renowned Pay Expo MENA awards granted us the Digital Commerce Innovation Award for establishing a successful online payment solution across the region.
We also received Fintech of the Year award last month at The Entrepreneur MENA magazine’s annual Enterprise Agility Awards, acknowledging our efforts in breaking down barriers to introduce the convenience in adopting secure online payment methods.
In addition to that Doha Bank, one of the largest commercial banks in Qatar, gave us this year’s Partners Award, as our partnership agreement helped the Qatari market to open its arms to e-commerce.
To cap off 2016 for our company, crowd-sourcing company Owler presented us this year’s Hot in Dubai award for being a top trending company in the city.
In 2017, PAYFORT has been crowned one of the top 10 Tech companies to work for in the UAE by Future IT Summit and Catalyst Awards 2017.

Power to the people
The World is changing rapidly that’s why PAYFORT needed to shake up things last year in 2015 when we started implementing the light version of Holacracy as we were almost implementing it by having a reasonably flat corporate structure. Given that we are a family of 85 people who work remotely from six different MENA countries, we have replaced emails with the Glip collaboration software over a year ago to optimize our communication. Forget about titles! Everyone can lead, get to choose different paths and take actions, no more staying behind on tasks, company protocols or someone else’s opinion.
The company structure is broken down into circles rather than departments, with each circle perusing a certain goal. Each circle holds its own regular tactical meetings in which problems - tensions - are thrashed out, decisions taken and tasks appointed. Monthly feedback allows everyone in the company to see what’s working and what isn’t. The spirit of transparency was really great after opting in the concept and No one can kill a good idea. Great contributions get recognized and celebrated. Excellence usually wins as we added an incentive structure.
