Arco, the UK’s leading safety company, has chosen The Miles Consultancy (TMC)’s cost-saving audited mileage capture solution to streamline the fuel expenses process for 390 fleet drivers.
“Their solution met all our criteria,” said Sarah Norman, Statutory and Tax Manager, of Arco, which offers range of over 180,000 quality assured, branded and own brand products, including personal protective equipment, clothing, footwear, gloves, workplace safety and hygiene products throughout the UK via a regional sales offices, a 47-strong local trade counter network and online.
“The auditing aspect is not on offer anywhere else. It gives us really useful information and we receive repayments from individuals more quickly. It is also easier for us to review drivers’ spending patterns because all the information is collated for us by TMC.”
The TMC Mileage Capture and Audit system is built around unique micro auditing logic, supported by a proactive chasing process that ensures drivers record their business mileage accurately and on time. The system also reduces the administrative burden of processing mileage expense payments and helps fleet operators comply with HMRC regulations.
“Above all, it is designed to reduce our client’s fuel and mileage costs,” said Paul Hollick, Commercial Director of TMC. “We do much more than capture mileage data. We enhance it with information from fuel transactions and vehicle registration records and communicate with drivers. This enables TMC to offer our clients analysis and advice around CO2, VAT, BIK and whole life costs as well as mileage expense issues.”
