The Per Diem Plus app enables motor carriers to automate trucker per diem tracking, payroll accounting, administration, and auditing. Platform Science's transportation solutions help fleets to develop, deploy, and manage mobile devices and applications on commercial vehicles.
"Per Diem Plus adds to our growing number of driver-focused apps that give fleets choice and flexibility, and it represents the type of solution that fleet operators are seeking to increase efficiencies and decrease burdensome tasks for drivers," said Joe Jumayao, VP of business development, Platform Science. "This new collaboration with Per Diem Plus offers fleets another solution to boost productivity and meet compliance requirements. Fleet operators can use this app in conjunction with other tools in the Platform Science catalog, providing the flexibility to tailor their in-cab platform to best fit the fleet's needs."
Per Diem Plus utilizes GPS to establish IRS-required "time, date, and place" substantiation to prove away-from-home travel for over-the-road truck drivers.
The benefits of the Per Diem Plus app include:
- Enhancing recruiting & retention by raising employee driver take-home pay.
- Saving motor carriers thousands of dollars per driver annually.
- Automating per diem payroll accounting & tax compliance.
- Eliminating the need to retain ELD backups to substantiate per diem for 3-plus years.
"The Per Diem Plus for Platform Science was developed in response to growing industry demand to build integrations and is a part of our continued strategy to improve business management practices with best-in-class, IRS-compliant per diem solutions," said Donna Sullivan, CEO at Per Diem Plus.
