Hello fellow CFMA members,
I'm a new member to CFMA and wanted to reach out to say hi. I work for Comdata who has a long-standing partnership with CFMA, as a leading payment technology provider to its members. Comdata currently works with more than 1,100 construction firms (including more than 250 CFMA member companies) and has demonstrable, in-depth knowledge of the construction industry and how to improve and automate payables, expense reporting, T&E, fleet and payroll cards.
I have worked in this industry for nearly ten years holding positions with American Express, Chase Bank and now Comdata and can provide a unique perspective on the industry as it relates to these products. These solutions might be easier to implement than you imagine as many of our products are embedded in the industry's leading accounting platforms such as Viewpoint, Dexter + Chaney and Computerease, just to mention a few. For example this recent article from Forbes can be implemented with ease for most of you via your embedded Comdata software:
I'm looking forward to meeting you at one of the many CFMA events but please feel free to reach out to me for an open, easy conversation about how we are adding value to many of your fellow members.
BTW - Through a member-only cost-savings program partnership, Comdata has made royalty payments to our chapters in excess of $90,000 since April 2015 (FY 2015-16, $76,000; FY 2016-17 to date, $14,000). These payments are net of all member rebates and discounts paid directly to participating companies, which are also part of this program.
