CATA-approved member partners

December 9, 2011
The CATA has identified a select group of allied members who offer programs designed to save our member dealers money. These vendors are vetted by the CATA Member Benefits Committee. The programs they offer are designed to provide exceptional service and great value to our member dealers.
A list of the current Preferred Partners can be found on the CATA website at
Aflac The CATA approved an opportunity for dealer members of the association to benefit by accessing Aflac insurance coverage for their employees.
Aflac coverage is funded entirely by the employees who choose coverage. Aflac is a safety net of cash paid directly to the employee to cover out-of-pocket expenses associated with any accidents or illnesses that happen to the employee or his family.
The AFLAC program costs dealers absolutely nothing. In fact, dealers can realize added money to their bottom lines by not having to match FICA on the employee payroll deductions.
CIMCO/Comcast Business Services CIMCO is a Chicago-based provider of dedicated T1 telephone and Internet solutions. The parent company of CIMCO is Comcast, which offers triple-play coax- and fiber-based services. The CATA partnership provides a redundant telecom solution for CATA dealer members. In addition, the CATA has arranged for a dedicated account manager for all CATA dealers. 
DealersEdge webinars Dealers are encouraged to take advantage of a partnership between the CATA and DealersEdge to provide high-quality training and informational webinars to dealers. The rate for each presentation for CATA members is $149, half what is charged to users who don’t subscribe to DealersEdge. New webinars premiere almost weekly.
First_Payment_Systems The CATA has negotiated for its members discounted credit card processing rates with First Payment Systems. All CATA dealer members qualify for guaranteed low rates through the CATA Bank Card Program. No new electronic payment processing equipment is needed; existing terminals can be programmed over the telephone in minutes. And FPS imposes no merchant contracts, unlike banks, which usually insist on 3- to 5-year contracts with heavy fees for breaking a contract.
Utility Management Group The CATA encourages its members to explore the energy offerings of Utility Management Group, a full-service energy consulting firm and a licensed Illinois energy broker. UMG benefits and services include pooled natural gas and electric rates, energy conservation products and experienced consultants.
