Comerica's 'Total Programmanager' Option Makes Commercial Card Management Easy

Latest online tools enable real-time & active control of cardholder accounts

DALLAS and SAN JOSE, Calif./January 24, 2002-- Comerica Incorporated (NYSE: CMA) today announced the successful launch of Total Program Manager, a package of online tools for commercial card program managers looking for real-time and active control of their cardholder accounts. The announcement was made by Daniel J. McCarty, senior vice president and officer-in-charge of Treasury Management Services, as part of Comerica's National Commercial Card User Group meetings, held this week in Texas and California.

"An increasing number of our corporate customers told us they wanted to have direct control of their cardholder accounts and now they can have it with 'Total Program Manager'," said McCarty. "This is a self-administration option that lets program managers directly manage cardholder accounts using the latest online tools."

Total Program Manager includes the functionality of both iSpectrum and iTracer. iSpectrum is an online access tool that enables program managers -- in real-time -- to add new cardholder accounts, check posted balances, change credit and other limits, as well as merchant category codes, and more. iTracer is a popular information reporting tool that provides program managers with online access to transaction and reporting information.

"Our state-of-the-art online tools are designed to enhance the Internet experience for commercial card program managers," said McCarty. "To introduce 'Total Program Manager' at a commercial card user group meeting is especially meaningful, since it underscores how we listen, understand and make it work for our customers."

The Purchasing Card (including Canadian Dollar Purchasing Card), Fleet Card, Corporate Card, Multi Card and Comerica CompCARDK comprise Comerica's Commercial Card family of products.
