International Merchant Services, Inc. started as a regional company with Neil Johnson and a few salespeople selling scrip machines across Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. As our team developed into a national corporation and expanded its service presence, we took every step possible to ensure that our excellent service to customers kept pace with our growth. This has been true, not just for our sales and service force, but also for accounting, cash management and marketing departments.
