Mississauga, ON September 14, 2001 - Cancom Tracking Solutions, the leading provider of satellite based business solutions to the Canadian trucking industry, today announced that ProMiles Software Development Corporation (PSDC), North America's leader in Fuel Tax Automation and developer of ProMiles Mileage Guide, have released 'Cancom TripBuilder', a product designed to simplify and automate Fuel Tax Reporting by integrating with Cancom's OmniTRACS technology.

"The ProMiles integration offers our customers a cost-effective, in-house solution for Fuel Tax Reporting.

All of this can be done right from a carrier's desktop, they don't need to worry about the security of their data being transmitted over the internet." said Kate Rahn, Cancom's Director of Business Development. "Automating fuel tax reporting was the ideal integration module to produce a high-value feature for both Cancom's OmniTRACS solution and ProMiles."
