Toll management and payment platform Bestpass has acquired Fleetworthy Solutions, a provider of fleet safety, compliance, and risk management solutions, the company announced Tuesday. The deal, the terms of which were not disclosed, gives Bestpass a comprehensive suite of services covering all aspects of commercial fleet tolling, compliance and safety. 

Both companies will continue to operate under their respective brands, but Bestpass CEO Tom Fogarty said a tie-in between the two companies will offer users "a single pane of glass” dashboard with benchmarking and analytics for fleet executives, accompanied by a host of services aimed at delivering efficiency to the back office. 

CPSuite, the centerpoint of Fleetworthy’s advanced compliance consoles, Fogarty said, will ingest, analyze and display all types of data from fleets, including toll and other vehicle-related information from Bestpass. CPSuite will share toll and other information to offer single point visibility and management. Next year, Fogarty said, the company expects to produce joint products and data sets that will offer next generation analytics and benchmarking.

“The combination is a strategic move that will offer a more comprehensive and integrated solution to customers while also expanding our market opportunity,” said Fogarty. “Fleetworthy and Bestpass share the vision of simplifying and streamlining the complex and ever-changing challenges of tolling, compliance, and safety for commercial fleets. Together, we will be able to deliver more value and innovation to our customers and the industry.”

Bestpass has in recent years expanded beyond its original toll offering, adding violations, citations, misread detection and use tax (the last with its acquisition of ExpressTruckTax) in its own solution set, and earlier this year added weigh-station bypass, permitting and CDL Driver Protection.

"We have been impressed by Bestpass' growth and success, and we share their commitment to customer satisfaction and excellence," said Fleetworthy President and CEO Michael Precia. "By combining our complementary strengths and capabilities, we will be able to offer a unique and powerful solution that will help our customers go beyond compliant and achieve optimal outcomes for their fleets. We look forward to working with the Bestpass team to create a industry leader and more powerful and comprehensive solution set."
