TransNational Bankcard, LLC. (TNBCI) announced today a joint venture that could mean no more waiting in line at the DMV for Florida residents. Through a new partnership with ERT America, Inc., TNBCI now serves as a preferred reseller of SkipTheDMV in the Florida market.
According to a press release issued by ERT America, Inc., SkipTheDMV is a consumer-facing service that enables consumers to renew Florida registration tags through retail partners or online, using a secure real-time web solution. This new service gives consumers the ability to renew vehicle tags at convenient retail locations or online at www.skipthedmv.com, while avoiding pesky lines at the DMV.
President Jae Haas of TransNational Bankcard is excited about this new opportunity and explains, “Our ideal market is any Florida retailer with internet access and a standard browser. SkipTheDMV is a great way for businesses to build brand awareness, customer loyalty, and deeper customer relationships.”
One of the bigger value-adds incorporated with this new service, is the online visibility of the retailer on the SkipTheDMV Online Locator system. Vehicle owners searching for local retailers offering this service simply enter their zip code into the Vendor Locator and the results will include the nearest participating retailers.
“We are always excited about seeking, finding and offering salient, yet innovative, solutions to help enhance the overall customer experience for our merchants,” continues Haas. “This venture especially excites us because we have the opportunity to serve as an exclusive SkipTheDMV reseller in the Florida marketplace. We have strong community ties in Florida, as well as strong relationships with our clients, which leads me to believe our dedication to premium customer service and client management will help make this opportunity successful.”
TransNational Expands Market Reach with New Michigan Office
On August 19, TransNational Bankcard (TNBC) will officially expand its market presence in the Midwest by opening its first Michigan-based office in Grand Rapids. This expansion comes at the heels of a May announcement, in which TNBC publicized the development and opening of a regional sales office in Orlando, FL.
Since 2011, TNBC has showcased promising growth in Tampa and Orlando and plans to replicate the new venture model now in Michigan. “We’re constantly recognizing market gaps in which under serviced communities simply do not have access to competitive merchant service pricing or offerings,” says Perry Tatooles, Director of External Sales and Corporate Training at TNBC.
The Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo area is one of these markets. “We have dedicated sales personnel already stationed in Michigan, so it was almost intuitive for our company to formalize market presence and establish salient business channels to facilitate continued corporate growth,” states Tatooles.
Only three months after the launch of the Orlando office, TNBC has witnessed impressive regional growth throughout Central and Southern Florida. “We are incredibly thrilled to see that our hard work and strategic planning of this new venture has paid off,” says President Jae Haas of TransNational.
“Our hope is that as we continue to expand, we can better develop our model to accommodate for subtle, but important, differences market to market,” adds Haas. “Our ultimate goal is to be able to pass on the best benefits of partnering with TransNational, whether it’s our competitive pricing or innovative solutions, to merchants in under-marketed areas in a sustainable way.”
TNBC will be seeking full-time account executives to help develop and enable growth throughout the new market. “TransNational offers a fun and unique business environment that supports individual and professional growth,” says Bob Miller, director of corporate recruiting. “I’m excited to bring that energy into the Michigan area and continue to build a diverse workplace.”
Account executives looking to advance their career in a competitive and challenging environment should contact Miller at (847) 655-1319 or go to tnbci.com for more information.
