Autotrip was founded on the belief that it was about time to say a final goodbye to tedious manual mileage claims and explore ways to automate the process using smart technology.
Autotrip’s head honcho, James Finlayson, came to the business as an angel investor in 2017 after being Managing Director of the UK’s largest independent car club before selling this to Enterprise-Rent-a-Car. He’s well versed in automotive technology and could see the potential opportunity ahead for Autotrip so decided to roll up his sleeves, bring in further investment, strengthen the core team and assist Autotrip on the final stages of its core business offering.
Together, we have discovered that by combining a low-cost mobile connected device with a cloud-based software, we make life much easier for drivers – and allow employers to better control their fleet costs.
Using the mantra ‘keep it simple’, Autotrip is a very user-friendly product that is now revolutionising the mileage claim and reporting process. It’s not that sexy but it works and it’s straightforward – making the mundane chore of mileage claims bearable and saves time so everyone can get on with their job.
We have successfully raised equity finance through private investors, London Co Investment Fund, Sustainable Accelerator and also alongside crowdfunding. We continue to innovate in the connected car technology space every day and are on a mission to continually develop smarter solutions for businesses with a mobile workforce.
Going forward, Autotrip plans to further build on its strengths and develop its technology into new areas of the SaaS sector.
