We’ve come a long way in the past decade. When our founders started SPAN they knew that they wanted to build a business that would be stable for the long haul. We have put our energy into building a team that focuses on two things, our clients and their specific needs. Together, we build and refine applications that provide business management tools, transportation industry solutions, and secure e-filing.
It’s been over a decade of evolution, but our passion remains the same, creating innovative solutions.
As the market-leading Form 2290 e-file provider for over a decade, ExpressTruckTax will continue to grow by joining forces with Bestpass, a market-leading toll management solution. The combination of ExpressTruckTax and Bestpass will create more diverse solutions for our clients on and off the road!

The very first SPAN office is just 250 square feet, unable to hold more than two people at a time. These are very tight quarters, so needless to say, our founders work very closely to create and offer valuable products and services. They’re willing to start small, then grow.
SPAN recognizes the need for a web-based business management program for professionals in the beauty consultant industry.

SPAN’s founders believe that no matter who you are or where you’re from, you can achieve greatness, so they start the SPAN Enterprises brand with this trademarked tagline: Endless possibilities. They decide on a logo: two infinity symbols within a sphere. With that, SPAN Enterprises is born and gets to work.
