In an effort to assist its members in increasing their sales in the fleet and commercial channel, the Tire Industry Association has entered into an agreement with Comdata Corp. to endorse the Comdata Maintenance Discount Network. Through Comdata’s network, TIA members now have access to cardholders who use Comdata to pay for services such as tire repairs. For more information, go to www.tireindustry.org.

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

Comdata specializes in providing electronic payment solutions to thousands of commercial fleets across North America. Comdata’s customer base includes light-duty and over-the-road equipment, with customers from both the commercial and retail tire markets.

“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,” says Randy Morgan, Comdata executive vice president of sales. “That is why our relationship with TIA is such a valuable offering for our cardholders.”
