Toyota Fleet Management (TFM)*
has released a comprehensive new web app to support drivers on the road as part of its ongoing quest to make fleet vehicle management easier for customers and drivers.
Developed to be the 'must-have' app for drivers, DriverDirect provides unique functionality with a simple user experience.
TFM General Manager Ed Stanistreet said that while the app was primarily developed with TFM customers in mind, it is available free for anyone to download and provides useful features for everyday driving.
"One of TFM's goals is to make fleet management as simple as possible for our fleet customers and drivers, and the DriverDirect app makes it much easier to record trips and expenses than by using traditional paper based logbooks," Mr Stanistreet said.
"DriverDirect also has some unique functionality - it uses the GPS location of a driver's phone to show the closest Toyota dealer for any servicing requirements, as well as the nearest petrol station."
Drivers can record their trip history manually or by GPS, and publish logbooks in Excel or PDF formats.
Expenses such as fuel, insurance, maintenance, rego and tyres can easily be recorded and published using DriverDirect, and the app provides the option of adding a photograph of a receipt using the phone's camera.
"Another great feature of DriverDirect is that it provides drivers with a reminder when their driver's licence is approaching expiry," Mr Stanistreet said.
"It just gives drivers one less thing to think about when getting on with their daily tasks."
The app is available from the Apple app store and Google Play.
