Product Updates

Key Cabinet now also displaying miles

The key cabinet's user interface is now also able to display the mileage in miles. When returning the vehicle's keys, the user needs to enter the mileage of the vehicle using the key cabinet's interface. Until now it was only possible to enter the mileage in kilometres, with this update the interface will display miles or kilometres depending on the company settings.

Duplicated Driver's License warning

In order to avoid problems in the approval process of new drivers licenses, a new warning feature has been implemented. When the admin accesses Driver License Check details in order to approve the driver's license, a warning pop-up will show up if the driver's license number has already been linked to another user in the company. If the user has a non-unique driver´s license number the pop-up will be shown in the Driver License Check details as soon as the page is opened. This new feature will support the fleet manager in the driver license check process ensuring no duplicates are created.

New Service type: "Tire Change"

Tire change has been added as a new service type as part of the Service and Repairs section. Customers have specifically requested to have the tire change service as a separate service type to keep better track of the service appointments of their vehicles. With this new feature the tire service appointments can now be included in the Service and Repairs section for each vehicle.

CarSharing Admin Dashboard

The CarSharing Admin Dashboard is a new section within the CarSharing area to support fleet managers in streamlining pool vehicles. It includes an overview of all bookings as well as vehicle related issues.

Support Manager notification for faster support

The support manager notification is a new feature that has been implemented, which allows support managers to receive browser notifications for new support requests in real time. If a new support request is created, the notification will automatically appear on the screen of the support manager. The support manager can then click on the notification and will directly be taken to the support request with further information. This new feature allows support managers to answer new support requests right away and to help users with their bookings or software related issues as fast as possible.

Low voltage warning

A new feature has been implemented to keep track of the voltage level of vehicles. Under vehicle events fleet managers can now see a separate event that is created once the voltage of a vehicle drops too low. In this case an autmated email will be send to the driver to ensure the voltage level of the vehicle will not drop further to avoid complications or damages to the vehicle. Also the admin will be notified through a separate alert.

  • select the location
  • filter the vehicles in order to show only the relative vehicle
  • send the ID of the service to save it into the booking object

Extended booking authorization

It is now possible to specify an authorizer for users, user groups or vehicle groups.

Once an authorizer has been specified for a user, any booking that user creates must be approved by the authorizer. If an authorizer is determined for a user group, all users in that group must have their bookings approved by the according person that has been authorized.

A new report for driver costs is available that gives a detailed overview of costs based on driver. These are frequently used in HR for tax compliance and benefit analysis.

A new feature to optimize fleet management was added on vehicle CSV export. Users can now see the repair & services details as part of vehicle export. Adding the date of the next scheduled service and the type of service, will help users to have a better overview of upcoming services from now on.

Reporting expanded by Vehicle/User Group filters

The report export was expanded by a vehicle and user group filter. The expansion of report export functionality now allows to filter down specific vehicle and user groups which can easily be chosen through the drop-down menu.

Cost Center on Procurements

While in the past specifying cost centers was only possible for users, bookings and vehicles, it is now also possible to specify a cost center for procurement. This was added to the import/export section as well.

My UVV Check Details

Under my UVV check users can view their completed checks. For further information it is now possible to click on UVV checks to reach the section My UVV check details.
