If you’re working in a MNC or a govt company, then chances are high that you get reimbursements for your travel expenses. Though not all the expenses are paid, but what about the ones that are taken care of? Do you take care of them? Let’s say that you’re a salesman and you get paid for all your business related travel expenses by the company. But to claim your reimbursements, you must provide them with all the related data including the miles you travelled, the starting and ending odometer readings, the purpose of your visit, etc. Collecting all this data and assembling it in one single document can be a big headache especially if it’s a regular job for you. Similarly, if you’re looking for some tax deductions for those travel expenses, then too you need to follow the same procedure. But is there any easy way out? Yes, now there is with MileBug!
MileBug is the latest iOS app that has been developed by Izatt International. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.1 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.
MileBug tracks each and every inch of your trip using GPS. But literally speaking, it tracks approximately every 1/10th of a mile and puts a pin on the map to address that point. Even an unborn child can track you with that much accuracy on the road. But the app is not only about tracking your run but presenting it on the paper with ease so that your input is minimal. For each trip, there are some presets such as the type of visit. You have many options such as business, personal, medical related, charity or you can add your own new category. Then you can add vehicles to your stock with all the details. Once done, from next time you just have to select the vehicle and it’s done. These presets are general for every trip.
Then for each trip, you can add starting odometer readings, starting and ending venues, date of travel, currency, etc. All these details are required when you apply for reimbursement or tax deduction by IRS and the app takes care of them all in a very well-designed layout. Make sure your entire journey is being tracked. Once the journey is complete, the app will give you a detailed report of everything which you can directly submit into the concerned office without any reconsideration. So if you’re on a business trip, just worry about your business and leave everything else in the secure hands of MileBug.
You can create as many trips and save them. Reports are available in both HTML and CSV formats. Now you can also backup your trips, reports and complete data on Cloud. So in any case if your phone gets lost or you change to a new one, you don’t have to start afresh.
The app’s available for $2.99 in the App Store. So make sure you check it out today!
Pros: presets to easily start a new trip; complete data backup on Cloud; select visit type from business, medical, charity and many more; add multiple vehicles; HTML and CSV reports.
