Are you ready to book it?
EROAD BookIt, our newly enhanced pool booking platform, makes it easy to manage vehicles and bookings on the go, whether you’re an administrator or a user.
A shared fleet reduces capital expenditure and your carbon footprint – but coordinating it can be hard work. EROAD BookIt is designed to remove the administrative burden while enabling actionable insights around fleet utilisation and managing costs.
Putting the User First
We’ve designed EROAD BookIt to be intuitive and easy to use. With streamlined workflows and lots of new filters, you’ll see just what you need to and enjoy more granular user control.
Integrated with MyEROAD and GPS, EROAD BookIt offers a seamless experience across desktop and mobile app, enabling self-service, minimising no-shows, and maximising fleet utilisation. Convenient features for vehicle users include:
- Intelligent Rebooking: When a vehicle is late back or unavailable, the user is automatically rerouted to another suitable vehicle and notified.
- Book a Seat: Don’t feel like driving? Secure your ride in a company vehicle making a similar journey.
- Two searches in one: Now each Book a Vehicle search also includes a Book a Seat search by default!
How EROAD BookIt Works
Before making a vehicle recommendation, EROAD BookIt determines vehicle user needs then aligns them with available pool resources. This is where fleet managers can apply custom rules to prioritise or restrict search results, whether the goal is boosting fleet utilisation or reducing carbon emissions. Examples might include:
- Recommending EVs for shorter trips
- Displaying comparable vehicles with low mileage first
- Placing lease vehicles nearing their annual mileage allowance lower on the list
Vehicle recommendations can also be linked to user login. For example, you could limit a user to their local branch or enable multibranch access. Or the business might decide that basic users must accept the vehicle recommended, whereas a manager may override the suggestion and choose another vehicle.
Users receive calendar invites, email notifications, and can make bookings on behalf of others – whether they’re helping a new user or booking a car for their boss. (That party will also be notified.)
When a booking is made, EROAD BookIt records driver name, number and names of passengers, booking location, destination, start and return times, and trip purpose.
