OpenWay's WAY4 Technology is Selected by Comdata

A Leading US Payments Innovator Enhances its Card Issuing Solutions

OpenWay Group, an international provider of innovative software for electronic payment systems, announced today that Comdata®, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ceridian, has implemented the WAY4™ solution to enhance its card processing capabilities.

As a leading business-to-business issuer and payment card processor in the US, Comdata will use WAY4 to further expand its services to corporate customers, from small businesses to large corporations.

“The competition is intense in the payment card issuing markets,” said Andrew Park, executive vice president, information technology and emerging products for Comdata. “We required a flexible, open system that has next-generation processing architecture and is capable of managing our complex business rules. OpenWay has been able to meet our business needs with its powerful WAY4 platform.”
“OpenWay is proud to be a technology partner to Comdata through our WAY4 platform,” said Wim Pardon, CEO of OpenWay Belgium S.A. “In the past, processors have had to choose between the capability of handling complex products, based on sophisticated business rules and requiring multiple channels, or the ability to support simpler products in large volumes. WAY4 was designed to eliminate the need for such a compromise. The successful implementation of WAY4 for Comdata represents OpenWay’s entry to the North American market.”
