Jason Francis, managing director of fleet software specialists Jaama, said: With companies looking to practice corporate social responsibility and climate change a major concern, the efficient management of mileage is crucial to putting in place environmental programmes.
‘Only by collating full details on all journeys and the mileages clocked up can companies start to analyse whether they can eliminate any trips and so reduce pollution.’ Modern software enables companies to set their own business rules so that drivers, irrespective of whether they are at the wheel of a company-provided vehicle or use their own private car on business trips, can feed in data to meet individually set timetables.
Administratively, the accurate capturing of vehicle mileage information has consistently been one of the biggest challenges for fleet operators, accounts departments and HR departments.
