Vendors In Alliance (VIA) announces the initial stages of the formation of their vendor group. This group of industry vendors/suppliers has emerged to positively influence their respective companies and the livery industry at large.

VIA is a professional group of senior-level executives, committed to cooperation, education, the exchange of ideas, and increased industry buying, resulting in the growth of each member as well as the industry. The group will be facilitated by Rick Szilagyi, owner of Lexian Management, a company specializing in working with small nonprofits since 2001. 

“This group represents a broad array of products and services instrumental to the overall success of livery companies. We look forward to new ideas emerging from the group, leading to improvements for the livery industry as a whole,” says Szilagyi.

The first meeting of the group will take place on Tuesday, November 4 at the Chauffeur Driven Show in Atlantic City. The initial vendors making up the group are as follows: Chosen Payments, Create-A-Card, Deem Ground, Drive Profit, GroundWidgets, LimoLive24, Livery Coach Solutions, Maxwell Unified Communications, Perfect Chauffeur, Rental Limo, Transcap Insurance, and Trip Tracker.

“We feel there is a need and strong purpose to come together as vendors for the greater good of the industry as a whole” says Jeff Brodsly of Chosen Payments, who has been influential in getting the group started. “We are all successful in our own regard, however success breeds success and if we can collectively work together to have a great impact for: the operators, associations, trade publications, vendors and entire industry this group will be a win-win for all” Brodsly says.

VIA will have its formation meeting, introducing the members and discussing the primary focus of the group, and then move forward with planning out the calendar for 2015. Szilagyi will lead the charge with his long-term experience in the nonprofit sector.
