eTrucks is a new “arm” of Axon Software, which is a family-owned private company that has been around since 1982. It first began as an answer to motor carriers in need. We at Axon Software were astonished by the number of calls, email inquiries, and other requests for a simple standalone IFTA program, rather than our full, all-inclusive software suite.
So, in 2015 we got to work. Drawing on 35+ years of experience in the industry, it wasn’t long before we developed something worthy of “beta testing” and we started receiving feedback from a selected number of real motor carriers in the US and Canada. This period lasted for 15 months and we received some excellent suggestions from our beta users. We were able to improve the program to meet the needs of people looking for a tool to solve their IFTA reporting issues. At the end of 2016, we officially launched the software and made it available for all of North America.
Our culture of continuous improvement, our customer-first development process, and the care and consideration we have for everybody who uses our products, has made us one of the best IFTA programs for small and medium sized companies in the motor carrier industry.
The eTrucks team keeps up with all fuel-tax related news and information that matters to motor carriers. We attend the IFTA/IRP Audit conferences on an annual basis, and keep in touch with the IFTA Audit Committee and IFTA compliance people from around the US and Canada. Our program has not only been built to follow the requirements that IFTA auditors expect to see, but our team also takes the time to make sure our users understand their IFTA reports – not only so that they are completed correctly, but to also learn some handy details about their own business (that can improve profitability!)
