IMS is focused on providing simple, quality solutions to its merchants, but also helping them support the causes they care about. The IMS Cares program shows our commitment to going beyond what is expected.
Westmont, IL (PRWEB) July 23, 2008
IMS today launched IMS Cares™, an innovative new program aimed to benefit communities across the nation.
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.
"IMS is focused on providing simple, quality solutions to its merchants, but also helping them support the causes they care about. The IMS Cares program shows our commitment to going beyond what is expected." said Don Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of IMS.
Also today, IMS announced that CUT IT OUT, a national nonprofit organized as the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund, is the first nonprofit participating in the IMS Cares™ program.
IMS Cares was inspired by Smith from a personal experience. "We've all been moved by the struggles of others. IMS Cares pulls together the collective power of our merchants' transactions to benefit those in need. It adds more meaning to their business success."
Merchants can sign up for the IMS Cares program at http://www.ims.com. Nonprofit organizations interested in partnering with IMS can also find information at the website.
