Remembers Your Addresses

As a result, entering mileage expenses becomes faster and more efficient each time. This mileage expense tracking feature is particularly convenient if you frequently depart from the same location or travel to the same location. 

Measures Driving Distance

After you enter a start and end address, Falcon calculates the driving distance between the two addresses. It’s important to note that Falcon calculates the driving distance, versus calculating a straight line between the two addresses. This is because a driving route often has curves and turns. Therefore, it is not a straight line, and a straight line would calculate an inaccurate, shorter distance.

Calculates Mileage Expense Amount

The amount of your mileage expense is automatically calculated for you, leaving yet one less step for you. The expense amount is calculated from the mileage expense reimbursement rate and the distance of the mileage expense. Further, the expense reimbursement rate is set by the user. Set your mileage reimbursement rate to whatever rate you need.
