Magnor Plant have recorded reduced business mileage claims in excess of 28% over a 12-month period, by using Airmax Remote’s Remote Mileage Manager (RMM).

The reported reduction was across Magna Plant’s fleet of 2,300 vehicles made up of 1,100 company cars and 1,200 private vehicles.

Magnor Plant was able to mitigate risk of drivers overclaiming as well as improve visibility of mileage and journeys undertaken by its employees and reduce unnecessary trips by optimising routes and implementing car-sharing schemes, says Airmax Remote.

Jonathan Hall, fleet director at Magnor Plant, said: “Airmax Remote’s Remote Mileage Manager provides us with the right tools to accurately record the mileage is undertaken by our fleet of vehicles, a combination of grey fleet and company cars, thereby eliminating the process of drivers recording and submitting their mileage manually and declaring it.

“With the Airmax Remote RMM solution, any inaccurate claims are eliminated, whilst the administrative processes of mileage capture and management of expenses claims are simplified, whilst guaranteeing full compliance with HMRC regulations.”

Airmax Remote’s RMM is a mileage expense service that integrates with third party services such as Google and the Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to deliver mileage claims.

The stand-alone RMM service uses validation processes to select correct engine size and fuel type ensuring the correct AFR rates are applied.

RMM gives drivers the option of defining their journey category via a dedicated business/private switch in the vehicle or via an app, driver portal option, all optimised to company payroll schedules. Transactions using a fuel card can also be uploaded.

Richard Perham, managing director of Airmax Remote, said: “We are delighted to have delivered all the benefits and savings to Magnor Plant with their adoption of Remote Mileage Manager.

“Reducing business mileage claims by 28% highlights the savings that Remote Mileage Manager can businesses who operate fleets of vehicles and who want a more robust mileage expenses solution.”
