BRENTWOOD, TENN.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Comdata Inc., a FLEETCOR company and world leader in payment innovation, today announced a preferred partnership with InMotion Global, Inc. to bring AscendTMS to carriers, fleets and freight brokers through its Comdata MyFleet Program. AscendTMS is the industry’s most popular web-based transportation management software (TMS) and will be available at no cost to help these customers fully manage their trucking logistics businesses.
Comdata’s MyFleet Program is a custom portfolio of services that allows fleets with up to 100 trucks to address their most critical operating challenges—lowering costs, staying compliant and accessing the capital they need to run their businesses. With a unique blend of offerings directly from Comdata as well as through leading partners, program users are able to simplify regulatory burdens and ensure they have the liquid funds it takes to get through each month.
As a complete business management solution, AscendTMS fits seamlessly into the Comdata MyFleet Program with features including full dispatch control, real-time load funding, driver management and much more. The system operates on any web-enabled device, including a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone and requires no installs, no downloads, no setup, no hardware and no contracts.
“We developed our MyFleet Program with close attention to input from smaller OTR fleets about their specific business needs. Not surprisingly, our customers consider a high-performing, easy-to-use TMS platform a critical tool for their success,” said Greg Secord, president of Comdata North American Trucking (NAT). “Comdata’s partnership with AscendTMS means that trucking businesses of all sizes can now achieve important cost efficiencies at scale, which will allow them to stay on the road and focus on driving.”
More than 97 percent of interstate carriers in the United States have between 1 and 100 trucks, according to the 2016 American Trucking Association (ATA) Trends Report. Many of these asset-based companies still operate using a paper-based system to handle reporting, filing, payments and more. But the move away from paper is happening quickly, according to Tim Higham, president and CEO of InMotion Global, Inc.
“Small and medium sized fleet carriers in particular need an all-inclusive, technology-driven platform that works for them today and tomorrow,” said Higham. “We see a tremendous opportunity to respond to that need, which is why we intend to add every Comdata service possible to AscendTMS over time, including IFTA filings, mobile driver payments via Comchek Mobile, permitting, compliance, licensing and fuel card management.”
