What will your staff do with the time they save?
On average, mileage logs take an hour or more each week. They’re typically done in Excel — with mileage calculations from Google Maps. It’s a tedious, time-consuming process — usually done on weekends or after hours.
iGOmii creates the same Excel spreadsheets — but in less than 5 minutes (saving users at least 45 minutes each week).
Over a year that adds up to more than 36 hours that iGOmii’s users don’t have to spend filling in Excel spreadsheets. It’s like getting a free extra weekend each year.

HOW does igomii work?
iGOmii scans user's work calendars and creates mileage logs from mappable business events.
What file formats does igomii use for its reports?
iGOmii creates Excel or PDF reports.
WHAT DOES IGOMII NEED TO CREATE ITs MILEAGE REPORTS?
iGOmii needs trip location markers:
1. User’s home address.
2. User’s office locations.
Business events in Google Calendar / Outlook:
3. Event descriptions, including date and time.
4. Event addresses (so Google Maps can plot to/from distances).
Company mileage variables:
5. Mileage compensation rate (e.g. $0.40 cents per mile/km).
6. Make and model of car and odometer readings at timed intervals (eg. once a month or beginning/end of year).
Access calls to Google Maps API to calculate total distances travelled.
With these bare minimum details, iGOmii can build mileage logs that are IRS and CRA compliant (in the case of tax audits). The mileage logs will produce a daily breakdown of business mileage from the user’s work calendar -- and the reports will be formatted in Excel or PDFs for accounting departments or tax authorities.
DOES IGOMII REQUIRE A CRM SUCH AS SALESFORCE TO WORK?
No. As long as your company uses Google Calendar or Outlook, you're set to go.
IGOMII IS A STARTUP. WHAT EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE WORKING WITH LARGE ORGANIZATIONS?
iGOmii's founder has managed teams that have worked with 95% of Fortune 500 companies -- including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Xerox, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson -- as well as major North American banks (Royal Bank, CIBC) and government agencies across Canada and the USA. He brings this enterprise experience with him to iGOmii and leads the deployment team.
THERE'S A MOBILE VERSION OF IGOMII. WHY ISN'T IT AVAILABLE IN EITHER OF THE TWO MAJOR APP STORES (APPLE/ANDROID)?
iGOmii for Enterprise is a Business-To-Business (B2B) application, not a consumer product. We distribute it directly from our website (as a "web app") so we can provide upgrades, fixes, and new features faster. Most successful B2B apps are distributed this way.
CAN IGOMII WORK WITHOUT THE MOBILE APP?
Yes. Mileage calculations can be performed directly on your network server without your employees needing to access iGOmii's front-end app at all. Your employees would receive an email showing the mileage logs for the current period -- and they could either accept it or review their work calendars and make corrections as needed (in which case they would need to refresh iGOmii's mileage report -- via an email link).
DOES IGOMII WORK WITH APPLE CALENDAR?
Yes, as long as Apple's calendar is synced with Google calendar.
MOST PEOPLE MIX PERSONAL AND BUSINESS EVENTS IN THEIR CALENDARS. HOW DOES IGOMII KNOW WHICH EVENTS TO INCLUDE IN THE BUSINESS MILEAGE LOG?
Calendar applications allow you to create more than one calendar. We recommend that you create one specifically for "work" events and make this your "default" calendar in iGOmii. There's also an event override feature so you can exclude specific events from the mileage log.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES IGOMII LEAVE WITH GOOGLE MAPS?
iGOmii's mapping requests requests are anonymous. So no personal information is sent to Google.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES IGOMII STORE?
iGOmii keeps track of user's login/logout date and times. That's it.
WHERE IS THE ENTERPRISE DATA STORED? CAN WE ACCESS IT ANY TIME?
Enterprise data (user login/logout date and times) is stored on your company's intranet. You can access it any time you like.
We manage iGOmii's installation and upgrades, but beyond that the data's in your hands.
DO OUR EMPLOYEES NEED TO CHANGE THEIR WORK HABITS TO USE IGOMII?
Yes -- if they aren't already doing so, they should add mappable addresses to events in their work calendars (so iGOmii can calculate mileage). Adding addresses also makes it easier for them to use Google Maps or Apple Maps when they're travelling to business events in their cars.
WHAT PROOF DO WE HAVE THAT EMPLOYEES ACTUALLY WENT ON THE TRIPS IN THEIR WORK CALENDARS? AND WHAT HAPPENS IF THEIR SCHEDULES CHANGE? HOW HARD IS IT TO CHANGE THE MILEAGE LOGS?
Does iGOmii verify that business trips actually occurred? The simple answer is NO.
There's no system that's 100% verifiable.
GPS trackers can easily be misused and Excel mileage reports can also be falsified.
iGOmii isn't intended to stop fraudulent employee behavior. And employees who routinely falsify data in their calendars will eventually be caught -- all it takes is word or two from a dissatisfied customer whose supposed site visits never occurred.
Our premise is simple – most users will put their business events in their work calendars – and we build mileage logs based on these entries.
And what happens if employees calendar itineraries change? That's easy. After they make their changes, they simply “refresh” their calendar in IGOmii and we'll recalculate the mileages based on the new itinerary.
Our mileage logs can also reconstruct mileage logs from the past (assuming that the business calendars are correct). This is a useful feature, especially during a tax audit of previous years.
CAN igomii OPTIMIZE MY daily ROUTE TO HELP ME SAVE TIME?
Yes. Route optimization is available as an add-in feature.
