Comdata has launched an automated payments solution through Comchek Mobile, allowing users to digitize payments for settlement, driver advances, lumpers, repairs, and other common over-the-road needs.
Comchek Mobile, which digitizes Comdata’s paper Comchek and Express Code payment offering, was introduced in 2017 to help the trucking industry send, receive, and use funds related to their driver payments and loads. Using a Comchek Mobile debit card tied to an iOS- or Android-enabled smartphone app, businesses can now instantly send or receive funds from other individuals or businesses within the mobile network.
“From brokers to fleet managers to drivers, Comchek Mobile users have experienced the value of easily and securely receiving funds, managing balances and spending available balances in convenient ways,” said Greg Secord, president of North American Trucking at Comdata. “We’re excited to bring those same benefits to businesses that operate within the trucking industry, which can now easily receive and transfer payments and maintain their valuable business-to-business relationships.”
Once transferred, funds can be used via debit card for point-of-sale purchases, ATM withdrawals, bank transfers, and discounted fuel and hotels at Comdata Proprietary Network locations. The business user functionality also provides Comchek Mobile users with a way to fund drivers. A business owner can receive a settlement payment electronically and distribute it quickly to drivers through Comchek Mobile’s peer-to-peer transfer function. Funds are then available for immediate use.
Each mobile app user has a unique username to simplify how transactions are verified and tracked. Notes can be added to all transactions to make audits and reporting easier. Users can complete the business registration process in minutes from within the Comchek Mobile app.
