Mileage & Kilometer Tracking

DATABASICS makes the process of mileage tracking quick and easy with Google Maps and cloud-based software. Executives and managers in the construction industry can cut costs and ensure accuracy with automated software that only calculates allowable mileage.

  • Automatically use the latest IRS rates of reimbursement
  • Ensure that regular commute miles are not reimbursed
  • Avoid installing hardware for each traveler
  • Allow travelers to use the mobile device already in their pocket to track mileage from point A to B

Geo-Fencing

Because employees often travel between work locations, those in the construction industry have unique needs when it comes to monitoring not only when, but where their employees clock in/out. Geo-fencing allows administrators to create a “fence” or digital perimeter around a work site. Employees must be within that fence in order to clock in or out, which ensures that employees are within their designated work site before they can start the clock.

Improve compliance:

  • A full audit trail is created using GPS data, which can be drilled down by department or employee
  • Employees can clock in and clock out using their own mobile device within the geo-fence
  • Company policies are enforced automatically

Get more control:

  • Build logs of employee timesheets for accurate client billing
  • Capture Google Maps data by longitude and latitude
  • User IP address is captured alongside geolocation data

Save money:

  • Prevent time theft through clock-in within the geo-fence
  • Automatically clock out employees when they leave
  • Labor data is more accurate, decreasing labor costs
