Do you find paying tolls stressful?

Pictured at the announcement of the Accenture Leaders of Tomorrow Award 2011 was overall winner and UCC graduate Padraig Horgan with Country Managing Director of Accenture Ireland, Mark Ryan.

Not anymore – have you ever driven on the M50 road to Dublin, passed a toll and forgot to logon later that night to pay your toll? Yes? Exactly the answer for many of us! So a clever UCC postgraduate student came up with the brilliant idea of creating a telephone app – TAPP® – which allows commuters to pay tolling and public transportation charges via a single click! Padraig Horgan won Accenture’s ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’ award for his innovative business concept, beating hundreds of students from universities all over Ireland. To learn more, click here. Padraig’s project awarded him an internship at Accenture Ireland and a professional development tour to the USA. Well done Padraig and thanks for keeping a little more change in our pockets!
