Sofico has extended its product offering with Miles Mobile, a toolkit for the development of mobile websites, to enable fleet managers and their drivers to access information through web-enabled devices such as smart phones.
“The fleet market is moving at such a pace that fleet decision-makers and their drivers increasingly require access to leasing and fleet management information whilst away from the office. They require on-demand functionality delivered through mobile internet channels to devices such as smart phones and tablets,” said Jan Bouckaert, head of business development at Sofico.
The latest forecasts estimate that mobile internet users worldwide will overtake those who rely on a traditional desktop internet connection by 2014. Many company employees now regularly use web-enabled smart phones and other hand-held devices to access daily workflows and receive important business information, often out of the office.
Sofico has further developed its Miles leasing and fleet software solution to support mobile website development and capitalize on this growing trend. Miles Mobile has been built specifically for use by Sofico’s leasing company clients to provide a series of mobile web-enabled services for their end-user customers, typically corporate fleet managers and their drivers.
Bouckaert says: “The rise in mobile internet access and usage through hand held devices, like smart phones and tablet PCs, is causing a paradigm shift in working practices. Leasing companies need to have access to flexible, modern and web-delivered software solutions to provide their customers with the instant and timely information flow they require. We firmly believe that Miles Mobile and the new Driver Toolkit will help them achieve that objective.”
