I am a massive productivity technology fan. I love cool gadgets, amazing websites and game changing apps.
I like to showcase my favourite finds in to what has become known as my Gadget Hack. I put together a quick overview so you can decide in under 2 minutes whether it's something worth your time.
My Gadget Hack this week is Mile IQ.
What is it?
MileIQ is a smartphone app which automatically tracks and records your mileage in the background as you drive your vehicle for business. MileIQ users save an average of $6,900 (approx £5,300) per year.
How can it help me?
If, like me, you claim back mileage (or have to record your mileage) for expenses/accounting purposes then Mile IQ is a life saver. Trying to keep a record of the exact routes I took, remembering all my journeys and trying to calculate how much could be claimed back for business purposes was a time consuming task.
I believe that probably every month I would forget a journey I had taken or short change myself in one way or another by not correctly recording my car journeys, parking or tolls.
With MileIQ it's automatic. I don't even have to switch the app on when I'm about to make my journey. As long as I have my phone with me (which is always) my journey is recorded. At then end of each month a full report with mileage and cost calculations is emailed over to me for my expense claim. Simple!
Today's #Gadget #Hack is Mile IQ which automatically tracks and records your mileage as you drive on #business.
How much does it cost?
You can get started right away for free.
The "basic" level of membership allows for up to 40 drives per month. If you need more than that you can purchase a monthly subscription from only £4.99 per month.
How can I get it?
Do let me know in the comments below if you give Mile IQ a try and if you rate it as highly as I do. I love recommendations for new apps, websites and gadgets, so if you have a useful tool you'd like to share, please leave me a comment.
