Additional Information

Robin Anderson is responsible for the consulting and design of card programs for clients.  She has been in the commercial industry for over 20 years.  Prior to her banking career, she was in accounts payable, purchasing and travel where she created and ran a card program for a Fortune 500 company for over 21 years.  She had a 5000 card travel program and a 1400 card Purchasing program.  
 
Robin transitioned to the Card Industry by creating a school research project to save a local company money by helping them implement a card program.  Saving the company $10MM a year in process savings, she was offered a position within the card industry. While in Commercial Card at JPMorgan Chase and American Express, she managed several teams of implementation managers who were responsible for implementing clients on all Card products including Buyer Initiated Payments (BIP). 
 
Robin originally helped create the concept of a back-end payment process to help clients elevate reconciliation using a card as a payment vehicle for their inventory and strategic suppliers.  The team wanted to create a process whereby a client could keep their up-front process in place but, transmit a file to make payment directly to the supplier bypassing the costly sending of checks or other forms of payment.  
 
Robin also created the concept of Macro tax, sometimes also referred to as Exact tax. By implementing the new tax solution at her company, she was able to streamline the entire company sales and use tax.  Since the implementation of the new tax solution, many companies have converted to this tax solution to streamline their company's process and ensure its tax liability is properly paid. 
 
She has been a member of the Institute of Financial Operations (IFO) for 20 years and has spoken at their conferences several times.  During one of the IFO conferences, she spoke about the BIP process and talked to a girl separately about the new process and, that person's company became the first BIP client.  Since that time, she has managed a team of implementers who have on boarded hundreds of BIP implementations throughout the United States within various industries.  
 
With her strong experience in Accounts Payable, Robin has a unique eye to help with process efficiency for her clients and, considers each implementation very unique.  
Robin has a BBA and MBA from Averett University.
