Per Diem Plus FLEETS Automates Per Diem For Samsara Customers

Per Diem Plus, the pioneer of mobile app transportation per diem solutions, today announced a new API integration available on the Samsara App Marketplace.  The integration is in response to industry demand and is part of our continued strategy to provide customers with best-in-class, IRS-compliant per diem solutions. By integrating vehicle data from Samsara, customers streamline administration of their per diem program and increase efficiency as a result.


"Trucking is the backbone of the American economy. The increasing demands for shipped goods and a shortage of drivers to deliver them compels motor carriers to leverage every productivity gain. We introduced the PDP Fleets mobile app platform in 2018 to introduce efficiency to the time-consuming task of tax compliance for truck drivers, fleets and accounting professionals," explained Mark Sullivan, program manager and tax counsel at Per Diem Plus. "Our API integration streamlines the per diem management process, for it's all about savings customers time and money."
