Pool cars in your fleet
A pool car is not classified as a company car. Company cars are by definition assigned to a specific person. A pool vehicle (also frequently: pool vehicle, motor pool vehicle, motor pool vehicle, car-sharing vehicle), on the other hand, is intended for use by several employees.
At fleetster, motor pooling management software and corporate car sharing software are accordingly treated as synonyms.
A pool car can be assigned to a department, for example. In this way, the costs can be easily allocated to the department. In this case, a booking of vehicles must be made using pool car software or motor pool management software so that it is apparent when cars aren't in use on the speedway.
The idea of motor pooling management for employees is becoming more and more popular. Especially in the private sector, cars are often shared via car sharing - why shouldn't this also work in the corporate sector?
Electronic Key Cabinet
Manual key management is cost- and time-intensive - this applies to fleet managers as well as employees and colleagues. Keeping track of this is a full-time job for the fleet management team.
fleetster offers a key management solution aimed at motor pooling use cases. It acts as a 24/7 employee that diligently tracks every key handover and movement throughout the fleet. Employees can access the motor pooling keys only during their booking window (typically 15 mins before the booking).
The key cabinet is furthermore fully integrated into the fleetster system, and therefore even re-allocates bookings when keys are returned late.
Car Sharing Kit
fleetster has developed a B2B mobility platform that allows featuring a multitude of fleet management and car sharing use cases. The Car Sharing Kit can connect motor pooling vehicles to the fleetster software, and offers, besides a full data and movement tracking overview, an open and lock mechanism via smartphone or remotely.
Connecting your vehicles to the cloud via a CarSharing Kit will allow you to keep full track of your fleet - even if the pool cars are on the speedway.
Standalone Software solution
fleetster is a comprehensive motor pool management software to organize and manage all of your car sharing and motor pool vehicles. The purpose of motor pooling software is to facilitate the fleet managers' tasks and increasing utilization of the existing fleet.
It allows a booking allocation via a shared calendar, a key management solution, analytics and much more.
Software for pool cars and electronic logbook - how do I optimize my pool car management?
Pool car management (also motor pool management) works via sophisticated reservation mechanisms in a pool car software. Here, programs such as Excel and Outlook quickly reach their limits - the professional pool car software from fleetster, on the other hand, simplifies the management of pool vehicles for fleet managers - also with regard to tax law.
The pool car software organizes vehicles. Normally, a fleet manager is assigned to carry out necessary and legally required safety instructions with the employees. The fleet manager also checks the driving licenses of employees who wish to use one of the pool cars.
If the pool car management software is designed efficiently, a fleet with shared pool cars can offer potential savings. However, if systems are poorly managed (Excel, Outlook), pool cars combined with a logbook can just as quickly become a tax trap.
In order to achieve the greatest possible savings potential, the fleet utilization statistics must be effective, the fleet manager must have a good overview, no matter where the vehicles are - in the parking garage or on the speedway.
Electronic logbook for pool vehicles as a solution to the dangerous tax trap
Unlike a company car, pool vehicles are not assigned to a person. Such pool vehicles stimulate the imagination of the tax authorities because vehicles without taxed imputed income are a thorn in the side of the tax office and leave room for interpretation.
If there is no documentation of vehicle movements, the tax office assumes that employees with a driving licence are users of the pool vehicle - regardless of whether they actually use the car. Poor or incomplete documentation can also quickly lead to expensive additional payments.
The only way to protect 100% from expensive additional payments and problems with the tax authorities is to keep an electronic logbook. Thanks to the inserted OBD plug, all journeys are automatically recorded and create in the fleetster software a tax compliant logbook that stands up to the tax authorities.
