Latest AlphaGuide mobile app includes mobility timeline and mileage tracker

Key features include integration with a smartphone calendar, enabling the app to calculate an agenda of daily journey requirements based on diary appointments and their locations. It will also tell users what time they need to leave to get to the appointment on time and the best way to get there.

A mileage tracker feature in the app also helps company car drivers to track their business mileage for expenses and personal taxation purposes. In addition, the app identifies important points of interest based on current location or during the journey – such as the nearest EV charging station or tyre centre.

Additional useful features for Alphabet customers and drivers include vehicle, contract and service information, claims management in the case of an accident, as well as access to the 24/7 driver hotline.

Mark Gibson, head of marketing & business development for Alphabet in the UK, said: “This is really exciting news for Alphabet customers and drivers – as well as the UK’s company car drivers and regular business travellers. This app provides key information at your fingertips and useful tools as further demonstration of the ways that Alphabet is helping to support real world mobility requirements.”

The app is free to download from the app store for Apple, Android and Windows Phone devices and is also smartwatch enabled, supporting Apple Watch functionality, with integration with further Android smartwatches due to be released later in 2016.
