BestPass, providers of bulk purchasing and streamlined toll management services to commercial fleets, has made two additions to its management team.
Director of Business Development is Joe Clavelle, who brings years of business development and international sales experience in the toll, bypass and Intelligent Transportation Systems arena. Based in Saskatchewan, he will lead the company’s expansion into new markets. Previously, Clavelle was Director of Business Development and International Sales at Drivewyze/Intelligent Imaging Systems.
Andrew Smith, a new senior software developer at BestPass, will take a leadership role in developing billing and end-user solutions. In addition to increasing efficiencies in internal processes, he will work on customer-facing enhancements that expand the company’s offerings, including a suite of automatic notifications that clients can enable to manage their accounts. Smith brings 20 years of experience in IT and software development to BestPass. Previously, he served as director of Research and Development for Transfinder and as development manager at InfoEd.
“With more than 250,000 pieces of equipment and over 125,000 transponders in service, we’re processing over $22 million in tolls monthly for trucking operations, including some of the country’s largest fleets,” said John Andrews, president and CEO of BestPass. “Joe Clavelle and Andrew Smith are welcome additions to the BestPass team as we strive to constantly improve the services we provide our customers.”
BestPass said the expansion reflects the rising number of trucking operations that are using the company’s toll management and discount services, and the recent addition of new tolling authorities to its network.
