ALBANY, NY--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - BESTPASS™, Inc., providers of bulk purchasing and streamlined toll management services to commercial fleets, today announced two additions to its growing team of management and development professionals.

Andrew Smith, a new Senior Software Developer at BESTPASS, will take a leadership role in developing state of the art billing and end-user solutions. In addition to increasing efficiencies in internal processes, he will work on customer-facing enhancements that expand the company's offerings, including a suite of automatic notifications that clients can enable to proactively manage their accounts. Smith brings 20 years of experience in IT and software development to BESTPASS. Previously, he served as Director of Research and Development for Transfinder and as Development Manager at InfoEd.
