Named third place in the Catapult Innovation Awards at the NEAA 2015 event, JORY looks to capitalize on the recognition as they roll out their mPOS.



Portland, OR – January 20, 2015 – Up-and-coming software and technology company, JORY, LLC, recently made a splash at the 2015 Northeast Acquirers Association annual conference when they unveiled their new mPOS and business management software package.

With a dozen entries competing for recognition across the entire payments, technology, and processing industry, the judges narrowed the field down to four finalists. Each was notified in advance and given the opportunity to prepare a 10 minute presentation that was submitted to the judges before the conference, as well as live at the conference itself.

Finalists were chosen at random to present, and each presentation was followed by a 10 minute Q&A with the judges. After all presentations were complete, the judges retired to deliberate over the final rulings while the presenters fielded questions from the audience.

After approximately 15 minutes of comprehensive grilling from the audience, the judges returned to present the awards. Despite being the only entry to directly address the acquiring industry, Jory was awarded third place.

“Of course it’s not as good as taking home first place,” said Michael Hass, CEO of JORY, “but for our first time presenting this new product, we’re really satisfied with the result, and attention Jory is getting. Overall, NEAA was a success for us and we’re looking to carry that forward to ETA and the other regional shows this year. We got some great feedback and we’re that much stronger for it.”

Jory is currently undergoing its alpha-release in and around the greater Portland, Oregon metro area with a select number of merchants being supplied by early vendor partners with JORY, LLC. A major release is scheduled for spring of this year.


Founded by payment and technology professionals, the team at JORY, LLC is dedicated to helping acquirers do more for their merchants with exclusive features and unique solutions that help merchants engage, transact, and operate beyond the point of sale. To learn more, visit or call 503-465-3889.
