Trips Log – This is where you will see mileage entered against trips on Work Orders as well as directly in the Autos Module
Expense Records – Here you will find purchases made for the vehicle
Maintenance Records – This is where you will log maintenance work completed
Vehicle Information – Here, you will enter details about the company trucks

Autos Dashboard


When hopping into the Autos Module of iPoint, you will first notice the new Autos Dashboard. Here you will see a quick graph overview of the Milage, Expenses and which vehicles are approaching or due for maintenance.

Three graphs reference the data recorded against your vehicles.

Miles per Auto (Past Six Months) – Reflects the mileage recorded against each vehicle within the past six months.
Expenses per Month (Past Twelve Months) – Reflects the total expenses recorded against all vehicles each month for the past twelve months.
Miles per Month (Past Six Months) – Reflects the total mileage recorded for all vehicles each month for the past six months.

Next Maintenance Needs

Within this section of the Autos Dashboard, the records for Vehicles approaching or due maintenance will show in order based on which vehicles are approaching their Maintenance Due. Within this section of the dashboard, you can quickly access the vehicle maintenance records displayed by selecting within this record.

Autos Fleet


Within the Fleet section of Autos, you will see the list of your active vehicles and their names with quick access to the desired vehicle’s Trips, Expenses, Maintenance, and Information.

To reveal vehicles that have been archived, select the Show Archived option at the top right of the window. This will show all the vehicles entered within the fleet as active or archived.


Drivers can track the mileage for company vehicles here in Trips. In addition, work Orders have a shortcut to the mileage log on the Auto/$$ tab of the computer Work Order or the Mileage menu on iPoint Mobile Work Orders.
