Combines Power of Industry-Preferred IFTA Fuel Tax Reporting Solution with GPS Truck Tracking for Automated Fuel Tax Prep

BLOOMFIELD, Connecticut – September 30, 2009 – Prophesy Transportation Solutions, Inc., an Accellos company, today announced the release of their groundbreaking new product, TaxTally GPS.

The company has combined the power of their best-selling TaxTally Fuel Tax Reporting software with their dynamic GPS truck tracking solution (Prophesy Tracker) to offer the most robust Fuel and Road Tax reporting solution ever created.

How TaxTally GPS works:

Precise GPS locations (seconds apart) are gathered, recorded and downloaded for each vehicle in a given fleet. Location data is then merged with fuel transaction data from the fuel card provider. Once validated, quarterly IFTA reports are calculated and prepared automatically without any further interaction or data entry within TaxTally GPS.

“TaxTally GPS brings a groundbreaking tool to the Trucking Industry,” said Prophesy Vice President Bill Ashburn.  “There is quite simply no other solution on the market that provides this level of integration between GPS Tracking data and Fuel Tax Reporting.  Our team is proud to be on the leading edge of this functionality.”

  • Know instantly when scheduled appointments are running behind schedule, via real-time GPS tracking.
