In an effort to assist its members in increasing their sales to fleets and other commercial vehicle tire buyers, the Tire Industry Association (TIA) has entered into an agreement to endorse the Comdata Maintenance Discount Network.

TIA members now have access to Comdata cardholders for processing payments.

“With thousands of Comdata cardholders seeking maintenance facilities to service their vehicles, the opportunity for TIA members is significant,” says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.

“Comdata offers our members the ability to be paid at the time of service, which eliminates the need for holding receivables and waiting up to 90 days for payment,” he points out.

The firm specializes in providing electronic payment options to thousands of commercial fleets across North America. Its customer base includes light-duty and over-the-road equipment; the customers come from both the commercial and retail tire markets.

With “state-of-the-art technology and redundancy,” the company captures and reports detailed transaction data, which allows customers to analyze their spending patterns “in order to gain unprecedented control of their expenses,” according to Randy Morgan, executive vice president of sales.

“Comdata has a long-standing commitment to providing a wide range of solutions that create value for our customers, he says. “And automotive maintenance is a key part of that. We know our customers want to use the Comdata Card for maintenance purchases, so developing a network of maintenance service providers is critical for us. That is why our relationship with TIA is such a valuable offering for our cardholders.”
