Comdata and CAT Scale Launch Mobile App Payment Capabilities to Save Driver Time

BRENTWOOD, TN – March 4, 2016—Comdata Inc., a leader in payment innovation, is pleased to announce the company is providing new payment capabilities for CAT Scale transactions within the Weigh My Truck mobile app.

Truck weighs are an important industry practice for over-the-road drivers needing to comply with stringent weight regulations and avoid potential fines associated with overweight or misbalanced loads.  Unfortunately, these necessary stops can also be very time consuming, taking drivers off the road for 30 minutes or more as they weigh, pay and collect their paperwork.

The new solution from Comdata and CAT Scale combines one of the most widely accepted payment solutions in the fleet industry with the power of the largest scale network, allowing drivers to quickly stop, weigh and pay without ever having to leave their cab. Drivers can complete the process and be back on the road in minutes.  Additionally, Comdata offers unique controls for the transaction payment, validating that both the scales product and the individual weigh station location are open and approved for each transaction.  Using the Weigh My Truck app, drivers can now streamline the weigh station process at any of the more than 1,650 CAT Scale locations nationwide.

“We are excited to join with CAT Scale and integrate the Comdata Card for payment with the Weigh My Truck mobile app,” said Greg Secord, president of North American Trucking at Comdata. “Time is increasingly critical for our fleet customers and their drivers, so we are pleased to be able to help them simplify payment during the weighing process while still providing appropriate controls and oversight for the transaction.”

Kelle’s Transport Services, which operates more than 285 trucks and 400 reefer trailers from its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been using the payment solution with Comdata for their CAT Scale transactions.  “The time savings on the road have been invaluable,” said Carrie Burbidge, fuel and permits manager at Kelle’s. “Our drivers are easily saving 35 minutes or more for each transaction with this process.”

In addition to saving drivers time, this new solution will reduce the need for the fleet to process driver reimbursements, while also their improving record keeping and compliance.

“Use of the Weigh My Truck app has proven to have a significant and positive impact on the driver’s time,” said Delia Meier, senior vice president for CAT Scale. “Having the Comdata Card available for payment within the app opens it up to an even greater number of CAT Scale customers, while still providing the fleets with confidence that their required controls and limits are in place.”
