Service Application


Introduction

Thank you for your interest in Bestpass. To get started please read the following information very carefully.

Prepaid Tolls
  • All tolls incurred on a monthly basis are prepaid and are processed each day with the toll amount deducted from the balance on your account. Your prepaid account may be funded by ACH direct debit, credit card, or if prefer to wire the funds directly to Bestpass. Please see the form included in this application to select the funding method you prefer.
  • Unless otherwise worked out with a Bestpass representative, your prepayment generally equals one month average toll usage and you must maintain a positive balance with Bestpass all times. When the balance of the account falls below a preset threshold (typically 50% of your average monthly toll usage) you will be notified via email, fax, or mail to replenish the account to the required prepaid level. Failure to replenish your account when requested will result in loss of discount and potential deactivation of your transponders.

Vehicles

Please enter information for all vehicles below. The Vehicle Reference code is not the unit number on the vehicle. Codes are found in the VRC Chart available in this application or at http://support.bestpass.com and describe the type of vehicle, as it most commonly travels (e.g., 727 is the appropriate Vehicle Reference Code for a Tag to be used on a 3 axle tractor that commonly hauls a 2 axle trailer that is up to 48' long). If you are just registering a vehicle as a secondary user of a tag, please do not check a tag choice.

NOTE: If signing up for bypass service make sure to include a copy of the CAB card for each vehicle. If you are signing up for NCPass, North Carolina requires a photograph of the right side of each vehicle. A picture is required for each unique make and model of vehicle in your fleet.

VIOLATIONS

If you use a Transponder when your Account is in a negative balance, suspended or revoked, or after the Transponder has been reported lost or stolen, you may incur an administrative fee of up to $100 per occurrence; be charged the full charge for all tolls and fees incurred; and/or be asked to surrender all Transponders to BESTPASS.
  2. If you use the Transponder in a vehicle other than one of the class for which the Transponder is designated, you may incur administrative fees of up to $100 per occurrence; and/or be asked to surrender the Transponder to BESTPASS via certified mail.

If the Transponder is non-operational for reasons other than abuse or improper use, the Transponder may be returned and replaced at no charge. If it is determined by BESTPASS that the transponder has been damaged, defaced, or improperly used, a nonrefundable fee will be charged for its replacement. Any toll charges incurred during the shipment of Transponders back to BESTPASS are the sole responsibility of you and will be posted to your Account.

Bestpass Commitment to Customer Service

Valued Customer,

Bestpass prides itself on the quality and quantity of service provided to our clients. This document includes our company policies that every employee at Bestpass is required to read and follow. They are reproduced below, for the benefit of our clients and partners. If you feel the service you have received does not meet the standards presented here, or you are not completely satisfied, please feel free to contact me or a member of the Bestpass management team.
John Andrews
President & CEO
Bestpass, Inc.


Our Clients

Each and every client is entitled to prompt and courteous treatment. Our goal is to completely satisfy requests during the initial encounter. Sometimes this is not possible. When we must make you hold, we will try to keep the hold time to three minutes or less. If we cannot resolve your problem within that time, we may request a time when we can return the call. You should be informed of the reason your request cannot be processed immediately and an estimated time to resolution.

The majority of phone calls are resolved while the caller is still on the phone. The majority of electronic requests are processed within two to four hours. Unless you are advised otherwise, all requests should be resolved within one business day. Should your request exceed one business day, please contact Bestpass and report this.

If you are not satisfied, in any way, with the service you receive, there are several options available to help achieve satisfaction. At any point, you may request to speak with a customer service supervisor. You may also correspond via U.S. Mail; address your concerns to Administration.

Every caller can request that the customer service representative identify themselves. Each Bestpass employee must provide at minimum their first name. Whenever possible, please identify the representative you worked with in any correspondence.

Bestpass Customer Service Policies

General
Each customer service representative must identify themselves at the beginning of each call and upon the request of the caller.

Each customer is entitled to prompt, courteous and complete satisfaction to all requests. Our clients are the reason we are in business. Each caller should receive our complete and undivided attention.

Responsiveness
Phone requests should be processed while the caller is on the phone. No caller should be on hold more than two to three minutes. If a request cannot be processed immediately, the relevant information is to be collected from the caller and an estimated resolution time should be given. Return calls should be made within the stated time frame.

Electronic mail requests should be processed within two hours. In no case should a request go beyond 24 hours of receipt. If a request cannot be completed within the required time frame, the client must be given a status and an estimated resolution.

On-line electronic support should receive the same priority as phone support. Calls should be answered in the order received. If there will be a delay, announce the approximate waiting period to those waiting.

Accuracy
Clients should expect and receive accurate and complete information. Information provided must be relevant and current. If unsure of the proper answer, involve another department member or a supervisor who is better versed on a particular topic. If a member or supervisor in Customer Service is not available, escalate the problem to the Sales or Administration staff. As always, gather all relevant information from the caller and keep them apprised of the status.

Recourse
Clients who express dissatisfaction with the service received should be given the opportunity to speak with a supervisor. If a supervisor is not available, take the caller's information and inform them when a supervisor will be available. You should also inform the caller of the electronic customer service facilities available on our website. Do not try to influence their decision, give them the information and let them decide the method they prefer.

Phone requests for administrative action must be processed through a customer service supervisor prior to being passed on.
