First Data’s “Small Business Salute”
Small businesses continue to be critical to the U.S. economy with 28 million strong operating today according to the United States Small Business Administration. With the thousands of small business customers First Data serves throughout our network, we are putting a spotlight on this important group of customers who are thriving even in the face of an economy that still challenges businesses of all size.
In honor of National Small Business Week in the U.S. (May 20–26, 2012), First Data is featuring Perspectives posts as our way of saluting the hard-working individuals who run small businesses.
Throughout the week, look for Perspectives on Universal Commerce, mobile commerce, data security, and prepaid gift cards. Also watch for video clips of some of our customers discussing their use of First Data technology to thrive in this economy, sharing their number one best practice, and other topics relevant to small businesses.
