ACVM launches mileage capture mobile app
Arnold Clark Vehicle Management (ACVM) has launched a new mileage capture app aimed at drivers using company cars or rental and grey fleet vehicles.
Dubbed Journeys, the app is compatible with both Android and iOS devices and features an intuitive interface to help drivers log their mileage. Drivers input when they’re starting a journey and when it’s complete and also provide a reason for the journey. The app then calculates the distance travelled and the time spent driving.
The app integrates with ACVM’s AutoCentre portal and uses GPS tracking to submit journeys direct. If a driver loses their internet connection, the app will save the route so they can submit it later when the signal returns.
At the start of every month, drivers will be asked to submit an odometer reading to calculate the monthly mileage on a vehicle. All journeys are recorded as private by default to encourage drivers to record business journeys properly.
The mobile app integrates with the previously available web version, ensuring fleet managers can review business journeys by Cost Centre, Driver or Vehicle.
The app can be also be used to log journeys in courtesy cars, rental cars and grey fleet. Drivers enter the registration number and Journeys will validate the vehicle information.
David Cooper, managing director of ACV, said: “Journeys makes recording business trips easier than ever for our leasing customers. And because it’s been designed from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with our AutoCentre portal – and track journeys in rental vehicles and grey fleet vehicles – it provides our clients with a comprehensive picture of their business mileage.”
