The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2017-06-26T01:16:19Z Teletrac Navman partners to offer consolidated Fuel Tax Credit solution 2017-06-26T01:16:19Z teletrac-navman-partners-to-offer-consolidated-fuel-tax-credit-solution-2 SYDNEY, Australia –  21 June, 2017 – Today, Teletrac Navman announced FTC Manager, an innovative solution for automatically calculating and claiming monthly Fuel Tax Credits (FTC). Created in collaboration with PPM Tax & Legal, FTC Manager enables businesses to streamline claims, saving valuable money and time. “This comprehensive solution is the first of its kind, revolutionising the way fuel tax credits are claimed. We’re excited by this capability and look forward to helping businesses claim all the money they’re entitled to,” said Ian Daniel, Vice President Asia Pacific at Teletrac Navman. FTC claims typically require businesses to provide detailed spreadsheets of fleet data, with final rebates broken-down by accountants. This practice is time-consuming, costly and often inaccurate, based on sample data or estimates and leaving substantial claimable money on the table every month. Using real-time monthly GPS location data, FTC Manager accurately and automatically calculates off-road fuel consumption, off-road idle time and auxiliary fuel usage to help businesses claim high-value fuel tax rebates, delivering measurable return on investment. The system provides unparalleled accuracy by automatically classifying the entire Australian road network as either on- or off-road. “We’ve always manually calculated the sums for each account, with our accountants relying on the safest percentages. Working with PPM has helped a tremendous amount, and all we had to do was supply our information and the process was improved significantly,” said Danny Forbes, General Manager at Roma Transport. “We feel FTC Manager will make this process even more efficient, using real data to streamline the way we claim rebates and helping to put more money back in our pocket,” said Forbes. Customers using Teletrac Navman’s unique solution will have access to three service tiers, with Silver and Gold users supported by PPM’s extensive knowledge and expertise in obtaining maximum fuel tax refunds for its clients. Gold users will also have the added benefit of PPM preparing a retrospective 4-year claim on their behalf using data generated by FTC Manager. Even if you have done a retrospective claim before, this could yield a substantial additional windfall and ongoing benefits. This flexibility and support will enable businesses to maximise their claim potential with full transparency and audibility. FTC Manager is the most comprehensive automated FTC solution available on the Australian market, and is supported by an ATO Class Ruling, reducing audit risk and allowing businesses across a range of industries including transport, construction, mining and gas, government and agriculture to fully maximise heavy vehicles Fuel Tax Credits on an ongoing basis. *** About Teletrac Navman Teletrac Navman is a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider leveraging location-based technology and services for managing mobile assets.

Developed for business users the M-Nav 760 provides fully integrated vehicle tracking, job dispatch messaging and satellite navigation in one package. Other new features include a full touch screen, Driver ID and Bluetooth built into the device, delivering hands-free mobile phone communication through the unit. Navman Wireless has also introduced a new Private Switch, an innovative privacy technology device that it has developed exclusively for the market. This feature does not display vehicle activity and location data when the device is activated. Employees will be able to use a company vehicle outside of business hours in complete privacy and it further reduces the compliance costs associated with Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) reporting. Ian Daniel, Vice President Asia Pacific at Navman Wireless, is confident that people will find the new streamlined touch screen on the M-Nav 760 easy to use. He said, “Having built in Bluetooth capabilities is a bonus, as it enables crystal clear, hands-free mobile phone communication.” The M-Nav 760 is a key component of Navman Wireless’s vehicle tracking and fleet management system which includes OnlineAVL2 (automatic vehicle locator) software and the Qube vehicle tracking device. With the M-Nav 760, it’s as simple as ‘accept and go’. The dispatcher locates the customer’s address on OnlineAVL2, selects the vehicle to dispatch to that job and sends a message with the job details and customer address embedded as GPS coordinates directly from the office PC to the M-Nav 760. The field staff then accepts the job and the M-Nav 760 automatically navigates to the customer’s location with turn-by-turn instructions. Daniel added, “Our New Zealand team developed the software and the application for the M-Nav 760, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to research and development for a global product in the region.” Private SwitchThe Private Switch is a separate device that can be retrofitted into existing Navman Wireless devices. When activated, a light indicates when the Private Switch is in use and the vehicle activity and location data is not displayed in the OnlineAVL2 software. This is ideal for drivers taking company vehicles home outside of work hours. As the Private Switch illustrates the distinction between private and business use, businesses can more accurately calculate the business use percentage of a company vehicle for FBT requirements. “Many employees have contracts that specifically allow personal use of a company vehicle outside business hours. The Private Switch allows them to separate private use from business use. This means the business will be able to get the benefit of improved customer service, increased productivity and better asset management while employees are assured that their personal activities remain private,” said Daniel. M-Nav 760 Features Touch screen Bluetooth Driver ID functionality Navigation, messaging and vehicle tracking Stores 100 customisable preset messages High quality sound speaker for turn-by-turn voice guidance Easy connection and setup with dashboard or windscreen mounting Automatically calculates distance to destination, speed and estimated time of arrival Private Switch Features Reduces compliance costs associated with FBT reporting Can be retrofitted to existing Navman Wireless tracking systems Ideal for sales fleets Separates personal use from business use Light indicates when in private use Pricing and AvailabilityStandard tracking starts from $2.99 per day per vehicle on a 36 month contract.
