Office 365 is the world’s leading and most depended upon suite of IT applications. It’s the perfect solution for individuals and businesses and few people who operate a computer on a daily basis are not familiar with the applications it provides: Word, Excel and Outlook.

Over the years Microsoft have migrated the Office system from a pay upfront system to a subscription model, whereby a monthly fee is payable, much to the annoyance of some users. However, this has allowed Microsoft to expand the product features greatly and add considerable value to the product itself.

We thought it would be a great idea to cover these solutions in a little more detail as they can offer organisations increased efficiency and in some cases cost savings, if other third party solutions are no longer required.

The first solution we will cover is MileIQ – Mileage tracking and reporting.

MileIQ automates your fleet mileage tracking, creating an automatic, accurate record of the miles driven.

Once MileIQ is installed it works in the background – there are no buttons to press to start or stop. Your miles are automatically logged and recorded creating a complete record of all your personal and business mileage.

MileIQ saves time by automatically classifying frequent drives on your behalf. The Work Hours feature makes it simple to set the times you work, including multiple shifts, and will automatically classify drives outside of those hours as personal. You always have the option to re-classify a drive if necessary, from the dashboard.

On a scheduled basis the user can press one button to send a formatted, detailed and accurate mileage log to a nominated email address. If they choose, then can even print those directly from their mobile device.

The free version of this software allows up to 40 drives per month and is currently the number 1 rated mileage tracking app available. However, the version available through Office 365 is totally unlimited.

Our engineers had traditionally used hand written, manual entry mileage log books. This system was prone to considerable error as you would expect from a manual process. It also caused difficulties with shared pool cars and at the end of the month, the mileages were never quite accurate. MileIQ has been a fantastic improvement as all journeys are logged automatically and without error. The increase in efficiency and accuracy has been dramatic
