Comdata was founded in 1969 by Curtiss W. Harter Jr.. It began in the trucking industry, but current customers cover most major industries in the United States, including retail, hospitality, restaurants, construction, government, healthcare, and education.

Corporate cards can be used to manage any purchases that a company makes. Comdata's expense management system allows administrators to set limits on cards, restricting usage to certain merchants, dollar amounts, and number of transactions.

Virtual payments are claimed to be secure and easy to administer, and reduce the risk of an unauthorized user compromising card information. They also reduce the number of checks a purchasing department has to process for vendors.[citation needed]

Comdata was a subsidiary of Ceridian[1] but has since been acquired by Fleetcor for $3.45 billion in December 2014, and is headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee.[2]
