The holiday season is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the past year while also looking forward to the rapidly approaching New Year. Here at Bestpass, we are celebrating our many achievements and gearing up for a remarkable 2016. We are also taking the time to appreciate all of the customers and partners who make our success possible.
Of course, I must also thank and express my appreciation for the remarkable group of people who come to work each day at Bestpass and bring value to our customers. Our dedicated employees turn what was once a bunch of good ideas into reality on a daily basis and truly make a difference for everyone who uses our service.
In 2015, we saw tremendous growth in our business, now with nearly 3,000 customer accounts, including one-third of the top-25 for-hire fleets. We also added a number of employees across nearly every department, bringing our total staff to 37 and filling up much of the available space in the office that we moved into only last year.
We significantly expanded our toll coverage, adding Florida, Kansas, Texas and the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. When we add Oklahoma in the first quarter of 2016, we will have 100 percent of the major tolled facilities in the United States fully incorporated into our toll management solution. We know that our customers have been eager for this level of coverage, and we are thrilled that we will be able to finally deliver on many commitments by offering the nation’s first viable, flexible, savings focused toll solution for both the high volume interstate toll facility user and the toll facility operator.
We appreciate each and every one of our customers and partners, and we are thankful that you have decided to work with us on building a solution to manage toll around the country and even internationally. While you are in the very capable hands of the Bestpass team, I am always available and would welcome direct contact at any time with feedback, ideas or concerns.
From all of us here at Bestpass, best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season and a prosperous new year.
