Beanstream Makes the Cut

Working with Bell and Blast Radius of Vancouver, Beanstream provided payment services during the registration of the over 4000 aspiring hockey players who tried out for the challenge.

"The membership and organization verticals have been an extremely successful market for us," said Craig Thomson, President of Beanstream. "Our extensive ability to combine, credit card, EFT, and ACH payments into a single payment platform, along with our ability to track, report and remit commissions and partner payments is unique within the marketplace. The fact the we also support both batch and recurring payments makes opportunities in these markets a win-win for both us and the organization."

About Making the Cut

The first step to the Big Leagues is lacing up the blades, and during the Bell Making the Cut Tryout Challenge, a seven city, coast-to-coast search for the best unsigned hockey talent in Canada, over 4000 players took advantage of the once in a lifetime opportunity to experience big league drills and test their on-ice skills under the watchful eyes of professional scouts and coaches.

From across the nation, elite players and recreational skaters alike participated in a not-to-be forgotten on-ice experience. In Toronto, Winnipeg, Halifax, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal, hockey aspirations were captured by our cameras, and the top 68 players selected from the Tryout Challenges received an invitation to attend an intensive two-week professional training camp.
