BRIDGE CITY, Texas (PRWEB) January 16, 2020
According to Mr. Stroncheck, "With over 200 companies offering over 500 FMCSA approved devices, adding new GPS partners is almost a weekly event." ProMiles is currently renovating additional office space near their home office in Bridge City which will be used almost exclusively for personnel dedicated to supporting AFTR services.
Ten year ProMiles veteran Gary Markham will become Vice-President of Regulatory Compliance. Before he joined ProMiles, Mr. Markham spent almost 19 years with Comdata serving in positions such as Director of Technical Service and as the Director of the Regulatory Compliance Services division. Mr. Markham has been instrumental to ProMiles’ efforts to serve our many commercial clients, motor carriers, and service providers. Additionally, Mr. Markham has been the lead in all government relations efforts. Most notably, Mr. Markham spearheaded ProMiles’ efforts to forge a partnership with Explore Information Services resulting in the creation of a comprehensive and fully integrated audit workbench currently being used by jurisdictions that are members of the International Fuel Tax Processing Consortium. Additionally, Mr. Markham is a member of both the IFTA and IRP Industry Advisory Committees. Mr. Markham will now be responsible for two units within the Regulatory Compliance Division; Jurisdictional Relations and Permit Services Relations. This reorganization and expansion of Mr. Markham’s duties is part of Mr. Stroncheck’s continued commitment and vision to be the industry leader in providing state of the art, innovative, and scalable products, services, and solutions to serve our commercial and governmental clients while continuing to foster an environment where compliance with all jurisdictional laws, regulations and program objectives are met.
Former Connecticut government manager Rick LaRose is being promoted to Jurisdictions Project Lead. While Mr. LaRose is still fairly new to ProMiles, he is a nationally recognized expert in the area of tax administration for the International Fuel Tax Agreement with a focus on audit and compliance programs for both IFTA and IRP. Mr. LaRose was employed for 35 years by the State of Connecticut Departments of Motor Vehicles and Revenue Services where he conducted internal auditing, criminal investigations, led Connecticut’s implementation of IFTA, and managed the state’s IFTA auditing program. Mr. LaRose was Connecticut’s Assistant IFTA Commissioner, the National Chairman of the IFTA Audit and Dispute Resolution Committees and was a member of the IFTA, Inc. Board of Trustees. Under this reorganization, Mr. LaRose will be responsible for all government relations duties involving IFTA, IRP, and single jurisdiction weight distance taxation.
ProMiles has also added Gary Land, former General Manager of Fleet Compliance for DAT Transcore, to the team. Mr. Land brings over 22 years of compliance experience to ProMiles. As Director of Permit Service Relations, Mr. Land will be primarily responsible for working closely with over 150 permit service partners; helping them to better serve their customers as well as grow their business opportunities and improve profitability. As part of this reorganization, Mr. Land will work closely with Mr. Markham and Mr. LaRose to provide guidance and advice (where applicable) to service providers whose clients are currently subject to audit under IFTA, IRP, or a jurisdictional weight distance tax program.
Mr. Stroncheck added, "While ProMiles started automating fuel tax reporting back in the late 1990's, the Electronic logging devices (ELD) mandate has greatly contributed to the adaptation of automation services. Not that ELD's are inherently capable of producing IFTA reports by any means, but the availability of the raw GPS data has exploded on the market. Knowing what to do with that data and how it needs to be handled is crucial in providing accurate, and compliant reports to our end users."
For many years ProMiles Software has provided solutions for routing, mapping and fuel tax reporting to the North American Trucking Industry. Auditors in 53 of 58 IFTA jurisdictions use ProMiles when validating distance, HOS (Hours of Service), driving time and more.
