TomTom simplifies driver mileage claims with new app
Available for iPhone and Android smartphones, the new WEBFLEET Logbook app can help drivers and businesses reduce mileage claim administration and creates reliable logs to help with tax compliance.
The app is used in combination with the in-vehicle TomTom LINK tracking device, which reports the trip information. Drivers simply select whether a journey is for business, private or commuting purposes. Company trip records are simultaneously updated in TomTom’s WEBFLEET fleet management system.
The driver can also add additional information, including the specific purpose of the journey and customer contact details. The intelligent app also learns from previous driver journeys, automatically suggesting trip information to provide faster and easier logbook handling.
In addition, employees can register themselves as the drivers of specific vehicles allowing fleet managers to identify exactly who is driving, where and at what time, if proof is needed.
‘By working in conjunction with the in-vehicle LINK tracking device, the WEBFLEET Logbook app minimises driver involvement, maximising accuracy and reliability to mark a significant advancement from existing GPS smartphone apps,’ said Thomas Schmidt, managing director, TomTom Business Solutions.
‘Simplified and automated processes for companies and their drivers frees up valuable time for improved productivity.’
