CSI Enterprises, Inc. (Corporate Spending Innovations)
Throughout our twenty-three year U.S. and international history, CSI has consistently offered the most innovative fleet and corporate purchasing products while providing the highest level of customer service and support. Our company’s tradition of leadership, continued improvement and rich history of delivering one-of-a-kind corporate financial products has evolved to a highly customizable and flexible suite of business solutions including the CSI Global-Fleet Fuel MasterCard, CSI Corporate MasterCard and CSI Virtual MasterCard for Accounts Payable and a soon to be released smartphone application to allow business owners to access single-use Virtual MasterCard account numbers on the go.
Since 1989, CSI has provided superior domestic and international fleet and corporate programs and implemented payment solutions for multinational corporations around the world. These solutions included in-country and international cross-border leasing including large aircraft, rail, over-the-road tractor trailer and light duty vehicles. Additional services included asset management software, fleet fuel and corporate card, maintenance management with bi-lingual advisors and asset acquisition and disposition services.
Initially, in the U.S., Brazil and throughout Latin America, CSI was known for its fleet and corporate management products. These products have varied over the years per client, but one shared objective that has not, is the necessity to control vehicle lifecycle efficiencies and streamline domestic and international corporate payment methods. CSI's project performance categories are well defined, but the process to achieve global fleet fuel cost effectiveness in assorted departments or varied geographic regions was/is a talent. This honed talent is what separates CSI's products and people from any other.
The company in the mid-1990's had particular fleet management product concentration in the following regions: United States, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Peru, Columbia, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa and assorted areas of Asia. CSI utilized a network of European fleet solutions providers in nine separate countries within Europe to support this region. The company's global knowledge is comprehensive and its services are highly regarded. CSI's various vehicle asset management and corporate payment solutions have been executed around the world.
The accomplishments of CSI Enterprises' international business have not gone without notable achievements. In 1997, the world's "Most Admired Company" General Electric purchased 100% of CSI's Brazil/Latin American operations and appointed CSI Enterprises' founder, a former GE Capital Fleet Services Area Vice President, Mr. Keith J. Stone as its Brazil/Latin American President. CSI's U.S. Company's operations were not acquired.
Today, the company and its people are recognized leaders in commercial fleet fuel solutions and corporate payment innovations. For the past ten years, CSI has specialized in business to business fleet fuel and corporate credit card solutions to U.S. based companies. Currently, its fastest growing product line is the CSI Virtual Payment MasterCard for Accounts Payable.
