TORONTO, Ontario, Canada - Sept. 6, 2000 - Cabit Systems, a leading-edge Canadian provider of wireless solutions for the trucking industry, has joined forces with ProMiles, the designer of North America's largest mileage, routing, mapping and fuel tax database solution, to develop a new satellite-based solution that will automate those IFTA fuel tax reports, generating big savings in time and money for truckers and trucking companies.
Cabit and ProMiles have jointly come up with a unique way of taking the world's best e-trucking software solution to a whole new level. What if you could begin the cumbersome process of data collection for those tedious fuel tax reports right from the cab of every truck in your fleet? That's what Cabit Systems and ProMiles will now allow you to do. Their new product combines Cabit's GPS technology and its in-cab messaging solution with ProMiles state-of-the-art software.
Everyone in the trucking industry knows ProMiles well-earned reputation. And so do the regulators. Almost every Canadian province and the majority of U.S. State/DOT auditors are using ProMiles applications for IFTA, Log Book, and IRP compliant verification. ProMiles gives the trucking industry the same tools to pre-audit their records that the government uses to perform an audit.
Being able to start the collection of this data "in cab" and then sending it by satellite to the fleet's home base will provide huge time and cost savings. "Mileage, routing, and fuel purchases play a critical role in the management of today's trucking business," said Mark Bowie, Vice President of ProMiles. "The application that Cabit and ProMiles are developing will enable end-users to automate a significant part of their business, providing greater value as well as lowering administrative and operational costs for trucking companies."
Allan Meiusi, President of Cabit Systems, says this partnership with ProMiles is unique, and a natural fit between the two companies. "Cabit's partnership with ProMiles will give Cabit's Online Service Bureau a leading-edge solution in the area of mileage, routing, and mapping," he said. "Our co-operative efforts in the development of automated Fuel Tax (IFTA) reporting will generate great savings for trucking and logistics companies."
Cabit's Online Service Bureau already includes load matching services integrated with ProMiles mileage, mapping, and profit margin modules.
Cabit and ProMiles will release their automated IFTA reporting solution in October 2000.
