Motus Releases SDK, Extending Mileage Tracking and Vehicle Program Management Capabilities to Third Party Software Providers

Newly Available Software Developer Kit Empowers Wide Range of Applications to Embed Motus Technology in Existing Software Offerings

Boston, Mass. – March 13, 2017 – Motus, the premier vehicle management and reimbursement platform, today announced it is making the Motus Software Development Kit (SDK) available to third parties, enabling software providers to enhance their existing applications with award-winning mileage tracking and vehicle program management capabilities from Motus.

“The majority of business trips today are taken using personally-owned vehicles. These drivers have needs unique from those of truckers or business travelers who fly for work, making it even more challenging for businesses or individuals to track mileage and administer fair and accurate vehicle programs,” said Craig Powell, President and CEO of Motus. “We’re making our mileage tracking and vehicle management software available to third parties to empower software providers to meet their customers’ basic vehicle program-related needs, without incurring development risks or diverting meaningful resources.”

Software solution providers across a wide range of applications will now be able to leverage the Motus SDK to streamline mileage tracking and basic reimbursement tasks for their clients, while ensuring vehicle program cost-efficiency and compliance. Human resource information systems (HRIS) and human resource management systems (HRMS) software providers can now track and validate insurance and policies, as well as capture medical-related personal mileage for reimbursement. Ride-hailing services can embed Motus technology to meet the “off-hour” tracking and reporting needs of their drivers, better separating personal mileage from business mileage. Travel and expense management (T&E) solutions can streamline and improve the accuracy of mileage tracking and the end-to-end reimbursement process for employees; while pairing Motus with accounting/audit software extends the same benefits to independent contractors. On-demand delivery providers can provide real-time asset monitoring and tracking, while ensuring a comprehensive and compliant mileage reimbursement solution. Motus can also be embedded within customer relationship management (CRM) systems, route planning apps, fleet management software, and more.

“With the pace of business accelerating every day, software providers are looking for ways to automate and streamline administrative tasks wherever possible,” said Rick Blaisdell, Chief Technology Officer of Motus. “The Motus SDK enables partners to harness the power of our advanced vehicle management technology, without requiring their customers or their employees to adopt additional applications.”

The cloud-based, mobile enterprise Motus platform makes mileage tracking more precise and streamlines manual tasks associated with maintaining IRS compliance. For employers, the platform makes mileage-related expense reporting, processing and compliance more efficient. Companies that have employees that drive more than 3K miles per year can seamlessly integrate Motus technology for more robust reimbursement solutions for ensuring fairness, accuracy, and compliance. Motus reimbursement solutions utilize the company’s business rules engine, which considers more than 150 different variables, informing more than 300 settings, to calculate an accurate, individualized reimbursement rate based on where a driver lives and the number of miles they drive. For high-mileage drivers, the data specificity and velocity of the rules engine is critical to ensuring accuracy and compliance; typically driving cost savings of $2,000 – $3,000 per driver, per year. With the Motus SDK, third party software providers can now leverage mileage tracking and reimbursement capabilities to meet clients’ basic mileage tracking needs, while providing a seamless path to utilize the Motus business rules engine to calculate accurate reimbursements for higher mileage employees.

By seamlessly integrating Motus mileage tracking and vehicle management features into their existing software offerings, software providers can deliver actionable cost and field-level efficiency data to employers and ensure that employee reimbursements are fair, accurate, and compliant.
