RoadTrip, a new iPhone app that has just been released by Vauxhall, aims to provide drivers with a fast, simple way to track their business journeys.
The free new app offers a range of smart features for tracking business miles, to make creating mileage claims quicker and easier. It aims to simplify the process by allowing drivers to automatically build up a library of locations and favourite journeys, without needing to enter the same information more than once.
Vauxhall says that RoadTrip goes further than other smartphone map applications by suiting its functionality to drivers; especially those calculating business expenses.
The app allows users to choose from any vehicle from Vauxhall, as well as other manufacturers, enter a destination and plan a route. The app can then work out any mileage rates, what the journey will cost and any other likely expenses.
Vauxhall recognises that the end of a business day is not always the end of the working day. RoadTrip has been developed to include a selection of utilities that make business drivers' lives easier by simplifying their administration.
The application produces previews of expense reports that can then be emailed as CSV files that company car users can then send to their managers or other staff. It is also designed to reduce errors and make accounting for business trips more accurate. All essential data can be backed up, password protected and accessed on other devices.
"When travelling on a daily basis, recurring expenses can cause frustration for employees," said Steve Catlin, Vauxhall's fleet marketing manager.
"The RoadTrip app combines navigational tools with smart calculation software to offer an easy-to-use app for any employee on the road."
