BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--()--Comdata, a FLEETCOR company (NYSE: FLT) and leader in corporate payment innovation, today highlighted its recent acquisition of SOLE® Financial, a payroll card provider enabling instant, affordable wage access for workers. Originally announced on July 8, 2019, the acquisition will extend Comdata’s industry leadership in payments by expanding the addressable market for its new Fintwist digital payment solution.

“Through this acquisition, we can grow Fintwist’s footprint among small to medium businesses while continuing to serve our larger enterprise customers,” commented Brian Radin, president of Comdata’s Prepaid and Payroll Card division. “SOLE will serve as a great strategic addition to our payroll card business, extending Fintwist’s reach as it helps companies provide superior value to modern workers and strengthen the employer-employee relationship along the way.”

Today’s employees place significant value on financial freedom, made possible through easier access to wages and greater control of their funds. With the combined strengths of Comdata and SOLE, Fintwist will empower all types of companies with the ability to provide their workforce immediate access and full control of their wages, as well as robust cardholder education and financial management tools.
