INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT: Keeping your money in your wallet – a fleet-forward solution with drivers in mind

960 641 Stuart O'Brien

In a time of economic crisis, with household bills rising and petrol prices skyrocketing, being out of pocket while you wait to be reimbursed for business parking is a burden many fleet drivers may struggle to bear.

But a solution designed for fleets and on-the-go workforces from the global leader in mobile parking payments, PayByPhone, could be the answer. PayByPhone Business eliminates the need for fleet drivers to pay for work-related parking themselves, to keep receipts or to wait for reimbursement – they are never out of pocket. And that personal outlay adds up for drivers, especially when other costs are rising.

PayByPhone Business is convenient for employees who are on the road, but the benefits are also seen by the fleet administration staff. The days of piles of receipts and monthly parking expense reports are over; staff can do more productive tasks. Parking payments are finally one less thing to worry about.

And using PayByPhone Business couldn’t be easier via the PayByPhone app. A parking session booked by an authorised fleet driver, in an authorised vehicle, will be presented with the option to pay using the corporate card. With PayByPhone Business, card details are protected against interception or misuse.

PayByPhone Business brings a company’s parking under one easy-to-use, centralised system so one or more admins have visibility over all parking activity in a simple solution – one app and one interactive dashboard.

When business and pleasure don’t mix

For fleet managers, managing parking payments is tricky. Using solutions that aren’t tailored to fleets as a workaround may seem clever at the time, but these are riddled with risk and a massive time drain.

A workaround that doesn’t work

PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile parking payments, realised that a precarious approach to fleet parking was being adopted by businesses throughout the country. Companies were signing up for accounts designed for personal use, adding their company card and providing each driver with the same username and password.

Adam Dolphin, UK Sales Director, PayByPhone, says: “Companies can be forgiven for thinking this workaround might work but personal accounts just aren’t designed for that. It actually creates more work for a busy fleet manager, not less.”

Using a PayByPhone personal account to cater for a corporate fleet facilitates anonymous parking – businesses have no way of knowing who booked what session. Anyone with access to the account can park any vehicle and if a driver leaves the business, they still have the app, so can still pay for parking with their former employer’s card. Payment details are also visible to anyone with access to the account so these details could be misused.

“Fleet managers should always opt for solutions that are bespoke to their needs, like our PayByPhone Business, which delivers security, visibility and efficiency, enabling businesses to take back control,” Dolphin adds.

PayByPhone Business’ centralised system gives fleet managers visibility over all parking activity in a simple solution. The portal enables admins to manage their fleet of both vehicles and drivers, adding and removing access as appropriate.

PayByPhone Business is scalable, so there is no limit to the numbers of vehicles a company can add, and for added convenience, they can be added in bulk. Payment can be made from one credit card for all drivers for maximum simplicity. And for added security, once a driver or vehicle is deleted, the associated business payment card will immediately be removed, safeguarding the account.

INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT: Fleet management made easy with PayByPhone

Controlling costs, avoiding information overload, satisfying compliance regulations – the to-do list for a busy fleet manager is long and complex. That’s why services that help manage large, on-the-go workforces are at the top of any business-critical needs list. But now parking payments are one less thing to worry about, thanks to a new solution from PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile parking payments.

PayByPhone Business brings a company’s parking under one easy-to-use, centralised system so fleet managers have visibility over all parking activity in a simple solution – one app and one interactive dashboard are all you need.

Simplified management

PayByPhone Business is scalable, so there is no limit to the numbers of cars a company can add to the system, and for added convenience, they can be added in bulk. Fleet managers can add, remove and authorise drivers and vehicles easily and even assign drivers to specific vehicles. Payment can be made from one credit card for all drivers for maximum simplicity. And for added security, once a driver or vehicle is deleted, the associated business payment card will immediately be removed, safeguarding the  account.

With the detailed Reporting Suite, PayByPhone Business users have real-time visibility of who is parking where and when. Multiple reports are available including historical and current reports and full VAT reports. It is also possible to have multiple admins on the account.

Driver-focused ease

There are benefits for the drivers too. Authorised drivers pay for their parking in just 15 seconds using the PayByPhone app – that’s a 75% faster transaction time than with other payment methods. Drivers no longer need to pay out of pocket and keep track of receipts. This eliminates the headache for the driver, as well as the fleet admin of time-consuming monthly expense reports. Drivers can be alerted before their parking session is due to expire, avoiding those costly parking fines.
