IMS Collaborates with CUT IT OUT to Help Fight Domestic Violence through the IMS Cares Program.
Westmont, IL (PRWEB) July 23, 2008 -
IMS today announced its new corporate identity with the engagement of a new executive team and the launch of an innovative brand campaign.
IMS has centered its vision and brand around its new tagline "Beyond the Transaction™," a promise it plans to fulfill by focusing on merchant success. For nearly two decades, IMS has been a leading provider of payment services serving thousands of small- to medium-sized businesses (SMB) nationwide.
The IMS executive team, led by Don Smith, president and CEO, combines over 100 years of experience managing and growing small businesses and large corporations in technology, banking, financial services, and brand marketing.
"Everyone on the executive team has run their own businesses and grown others. We have walked in our customers shoes and understand what it takes to be successful. We're excited about delivering resources that can help their businesses thrive." said Smith.
The marketing campaign features actual customers touting IMS' award-winning customer care, exceptional products and services, and its progressive new program, IMS Cares™, which was also announced today. Merchants that use IMS to process their debit and credit cards can choose to divert a percentage of the fees paid to IMS and give them to a qualified 501c(3) organization of its choice. IMS keeps track of the funds and donates them on the merchant's behalf.
"We deliver simple, quick solutions that streamline sales, but our customers want more," said Bryce Gartner, Chief Marketing Officer. "IMS Cares is just one example of how we plan to go beyond what is expected. We intend to be a change agent in an industry that traditionally hasn't focused on the needs of its customer."
Today, IMS provides merchants simple setup, fast access to funds, responsive customer care, and programs that help their businesses grow and support their communities. Future plans include investments in emerging technologies - such as mobile payments, pay-at-the-table, and contactless cards -- that enhance the merchant and consumer experience.
IMS is committed to protecting cardholder data by helping merchants remain compliant with security standards and working with the industry on security measures that keep up with the pace of technology and consumer adoption of various payment methods.
