Payless Expands Franchisee Benefits

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Payless Car Rental System announced it has partnered with Subrogation Management Team, Williams & Stazzone Insurance Agency Inc., and Thompson, Bostrom & Associates in order to offer Payless franchisees more resources.

"In these competitive times, we continue to benefit from working with outside resources to assist franchisees with day-to-day activities so they can focus on expanding business and building customer loyalty," said Michael Harley, president and chief operating officer of Payless Car Rental System. "These companies specialize in the travel industry, and their expertise and commitment will help us achieve our goal of doubling the number of franchise locations by 2004."

Subrogation Management Team offers auto damage recovery ranging from claims of windshield replacements to total losses. Claim representatives contact the responsible parties, process the claims, and settle with the renter or insurance company for full compensation of physical damages, loss-of-use, diminution of value and administrative fees.

Williams & Stazzone Insurance Agency offers fleet, property, casualty and general liability insurance. Thompson, Bostrom & Associates, a subsidiary, provides group benefits such as medical, dental, life, disability and 401(k) programs.
