Telogis has introduced Logbook, a mobile app that lets drivers track and organize miles driven for personal or business use, the telematics provider announced at Mobile World Congress on Feb. 23.
The app is designed to increase the productivity of mobile workforces. It's been optimized for iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. It will go on sale later this week in the App Store.
Telogis Logbook is an extension of the Telogis Mobile Enterprise Management (MEM) software platform, and was developed specifically for commercial drivers, mobile sales representatives and supervisors who drive a vehicle for both personal and business use.
Logbook uses Apple's Touch ID and simplifies authentication, tracking and mileage designation while meeting stringent tax regulations in specific EU countries including the United Kingdom, according to the company
Drivers and field reps can view their recorded miles and classify their completed trips by swiping one way or the other on their mobile devices. Full integration with vehicle telematics ensures the most accurate and complete mileage records so organizations can confidently claim tax deductions and gain more insight into their professional fleets.
Through the platform, supervisors can identify classified miles, assign unclassified trips to individual drivers and generate personal-versus-business mileage summaries within detailed reports.
