Hello to Veryfi Logbook Mileage Tracker by Veryfi.com

The past year has seen major growth for our company Veryfi. We outgrew IQBoxy and became Veryfi. Part of that growth was due to the influence of our customers, and part to the support of our friends, family & investors. Thank you.

We’ve heard from a ton of Uber and Lyft drivers in particular, and what they want is actually exactly what we want too: mobile, HIPAA-compliant tools that are truly automated and under one roof.

Veryfi has a HIPAA-compliant vault and so we thought we could extend that to tracking vehicle mileage — a natural fit for gig economy drivers’ privacy needs and those in the healthcare industry. Most products on the market, as we found out in 2017, were smoke & mirrors, deceiving hard-working self-employed individuals.

Furthermore, having multiple apps to run a small business is painful. Using APIs to tie services together is a challenging task for workers who want to get things done. A service like Veryfi could provide all of this under one roof without having to relearn user interfaces and experiences, and own a bunch of apps with multiple subscriptions.

So we decided to do something about this.

Say hello to …



With Logbook Mileage Tracker, Veryfi users now have a safe, accurate, and simple solution to logging their business travel. Driving distance (miles or kilometers) is automatically tracked and recorded in the background while traveling for business.

Logbook Mileage Tracker then creates business travel logs that follow IRS mileage standards in the U.S. and ATO requirements in Australia, making tax filing all the more accurate and easy. It’s especially useful for small-business owners, self-employed entrepreneurs, and gig economy workers like Uber drivers. Users can save an average of $8,800 per year with Veryfi services.

So let’s find out how Logbook Mileage Tracker works.

Goodbye paper logging

Two of the biggest mistakes manual paper log keepers make:

  • Not maintaining a contemporaneous mileage log
  • Mixing their business miles with personal miles.

When you’re keeping a paper log of your distance covered, it’s easy to mix up your personal travel with business travel. And when it comes time for taxes, this could result in rejected deduction claims or even penalties. Let’s avoid this and instead use tools like Veryfi, which help you stay on top of your business transactions with minimal intervention. It’s all thanks to machine learning and automation.

Veryfi Automatic Drive Detection (VADD) accurately detects drives

We call it Veryfi Automatic Drive Detection (VADD). Logbook Mileage Tracker uses our proprietary algorithms to automatically detect when you’re driving. That means no starting and stopping the app — in fact, it can even be closed! All of your miles (or kilometers) for business purposes will be recorded, eliminating the need for paper logs and taking a lot of stress off your shoulders.

Veryfi Machine Learning Engine (VMLE) learns your habits

The first few times you use Logbook, the app will prompt you to classify your trips at the end of the day. However, it won’t take long for Veryfi to learn your driving patterns and help you more efficiently categorize trips. This is our proprietary algorithms we call Veryfi Machine Learning Engine (VMLE). Give your tax-deductible mileage (or kilometer) records the accurate details they need to pass IRS (or ATO) scrutiny.

Veryfi HIPAA-Compliant Vault (VHCV) protects you & your data

At Veryfi, your privacy and security are of the utmost importance. Ernest Semerda (cofounder of Veryfi) has applied his experience building medical marketplace platforms which today power Kaiser Permanente’s ambulatory logistics & communication.

Veryfi is the only solution that’s HIPAA & EU General Data Protection compliant.

That’s especially valuable for medical or health-tech companies, and anyone who wants to keep their data truly safe from prying eyes.
