Trip Planning heralds an exciting future for shared fleets

We're excited to announce that Trip Planning is now live for PoolCar customers.

With Trip Planning, Smartrak’s PoolCar customers can now take advantage of a modern shared fleet booking experience that sets the stage for sustainable fleet management.

As the focus for Smartrak’s ongoing shared-fleet innovations, Trip Planning benefits from a product development pathway that’s keeping our PoolCar vehicle booking solution at the forefront of UX/UI design, reporting, and emissions reduction.

Trip Planning offers more intuitive and simplified booking processes that aligns with modern UX and UI sensibilities.

A modern approach to pool booking

Trip Planning's improved user experience is simple to use, laying the groundwork to ensure that users adhere to your organisation's fleet goals. Rather than choosing a vehicle based on personal preference, Trip Planning prompts users to choose from a selection of available vehicles that best align with user requirements and your organisation’s chosen fleet strategy.

And if you have EVs equipped with Nextrak, Trip Planning eliminates end-user range anxiety by displaying each EV's current charge and predicted range.
