Web Application for tracking Millage and location Log
Our client resided in Canada and runs a large scale automobile agency along with his associates and has a wide range of options of vehicle booking and billing. The point that he approached us was when he wanted to redefine the outlook between personal rides and business purpose rides and leverage the business accordingly.
The project is mainly to improve the analysis of car mileage covered and driver's annual ride based on work related or personal rides. It is basically used for the deduction of motor vehicle expenses incurred for the purpose of earning income. We can consider it as a personalized logbook of business travel maintained for the entire year, showing each business trip, the destination, the reason for the trip and the distance covered. As an overall, it is a record of the total kilometers driven and the kilometers driven to earn business income.
After the initial discussion the silent thought that we had was adding an accountant panel from which the users can share their trip info to their respective accountant. But only once the system has been molded to meet the basic functionality we launched a mockup version during the initial beta demo and the client loved the idea of an accountant panel and further, this new section played an important role in the application leading to become a main selling point.
