Smart Transactions Group (STG) was formed in May 2011 by bringing together 2 proven innovators, ACT (Applied Card Technologies) and sQuid.

As Tom O’Meara stated in The Times “Future of Payments” supplement, 7/12/11, Smart Transactions Group is a growing powerhouse in the payments sector.

Bringing together the proven capabilities of ACT and sQuid under the newly formed Smart Transactions Group has resulted in the creation of an immediately powerful company with big ambitions in the payments sector.

Earlier in the year ACT was ranked 49th in the Sunday Times 2011 Microsoft Tech Track 100 league table. In its 9th year of business, ACT has grown steadily and is now recognised as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK.

Gary Watts, CEO and co-founder of ACT said " Our proven capability across transport, public sector, retail and tourism enables our clients to connect their customers to the services they need. Joining forces with sQuid now enables us to deliver even more services on a single card and ultimately drive business efficiencies and better customer service for our clients.”
