Last week was an exciting one for Motus as we took home a win at the MITX Awards for the second time in as many years. The MITX Awards show bills itself as the largest and most prestigious annual awards competition in the country for technology and digital innovation, so to be recognized among the field of disruptors was a true honor.
In 2017, the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange (MITX) recognized our team with a trophy for the Best Employee Efficiency Technology. It was wonderful to see the value our mileage capture and reimbursement products deliver for businesses of all types celebrated on the main stage.
As our customers know, mileage tracking in the field, route planning and optimization and monitoring vehicle-related costs to calculate accurate reimbursements has traditionally been a highly manual task. The fact that Motus automates much of this process not only helps businesses ensure fair, accurate and defensible reimbursements, it eliminates manual tasks for mobile workers – giving field employees valuable time back in their day and increasing productivity to the tune of 10% all the way up to more than 50%.
This year, our team’s hard work paid off once again as we were in the MITX limelight for Most Innovative Mobile Application or Solution. The Motus App is an all-in-one, fully native mobile app that provides mobile workers with quick and easy access to important tools they need to succeed. In developing this app, our #1 focus was on creating features that make work life better for mobile workers. With this guiding principle in mind, we’ve made enhancements to the Motus App over the last year that allow users to monitor real-time data feeds of costs based on location, services that mitigate risk and promote safety and even beacon technology that reduces bothersome battery drain by up to 80%.
It’s amazing to see the Motus team come together for another MITX Award win this year, and we can’t wait to see what the rest of 2018 has in store!
