Mileage reimbursements have long been a soft spot in travel management controls. Reliance on employee good faith and approvers' route knowledge simply does not work well.
Reston, VA (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
DATABASICS announced today that it has released Automatic Mileage Calculation (AMC) for its hosted expense reporting service. The first built-in mileage calculator for expense reporting, AMC is powered by AOL/MapQuest™. AMC ensures that mileage reimbursement claims are based upon objectively determined distances. At the same time, it substantially reduces the effort involved in report preparation and review.
According to Alan Tyson, CEO of DATABASICS, "Mileage reimbursements have long been a soft spot in travel management controls. Reliance on employee good faith and approvers' route knowledge simply does not work well." To minimize excessive reimbursements and promote policy compliance, many organizations have mandated attachment to expense reports of print-outs produced by web-based mileage calculators, a time-consuming and cumbersome procedure.
"We are very pleased with how customers are receiving Automatic Mileage Calculation," stated Tyson. "The benefits of integrating MapQuest™ into our expense reporting solution are immediately clear: It saves time and effort and closes a gap in the reimbursement and audit processes."
