Remember when… • You relied on paper logs for mileage tracking? • You serviced your vehicles more often than necessary (just to be on the safe side)—or not often enough (‘cause if it ‘ain’t broke, you didn’t fix it)? • You got worried about unauthorized use of your business vehicles and had no way to prove it?
