From the Desk of Larry Kettler: On the Horizon for 2023: Many New and Exciting Product Developments

Happy 2023! At Procede, we are committed to putting every penny we earn back into the business, with the majority being reinvested in personnel, product, and technical development. This year, we are excited to see those long-term investments come to fruition in some exciting ways. With our experienced leadership team—several who are celebrating 20-year anniversaries this year—driving product development, we are on track to deliver more than ever. We’re looking forward to the release of Excede v10.4 later this year, which will include many service-centric advancements, as well as enhancements to our add-ons and integrations.

It has always been our practice to hire the right people, find where they can bring the greatest value and have the greatest impact, and promote from within. In keeping with this, some of our longest-serving team members are bringing their expertise to new roles and/or being promoted. We are pleased to announce that Eric Fortin has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Product; Lindsay Kramer has been promoted to Vice President, Education & Training Services; and Nabyl Alvarez has been promoted to Vice President, People & Culture.

In other news, we were thrilled to learn that we are the number one Navistar Certified DMS Partner by number of North American rooftops. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our International and IC Bus dealers for your vote of confidence. We strive every day to be number one with every one of our valued customers!

As always, there is nothing we enjoy more than connecting with our customers in person, so I wanted to let you know about a couple of events we’ll be attending. The first of these is the American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council Annual Meeting, February 27 – March 2, in Orlando, FL. We’ll be in booth 1044 in the TMC Technology Showcase, and we sincerely hope you’ll stop by!

We count a growing number of trailer dealers among our valued customers, so we are thrilled to be attending the TRALA 2023 Annual Meeting in Bonita Springs, FL, April 1 – 4. Listening to and learning from our customers is such a big part of how we advance our software, so if you will be at the meeting, we would love to connect.

In 2023, we look forward to our long-term investments in people and products paying off for you, our valued customers, in new and powerful ways!

Warm regards,
Larry Kettler
