"We're very excited and proud to receive this award for our Equo app," says Andrew Zavattero, vice president of mobile at Runzheimer. "It's a ringing endorsement of our vision to build a best-in-class mobile experience offering ease-of-use and increased productivity for the mobile workforce of today – and into the future."

The gold-winning Equo app effortlessly records business mileage and automates the task of creating an IRS-compliant mileage log, which is required of all businesses that reimburse employees for driving on the job. Through Equo, employees can capture, edit and submit business miles directly from a mobile device. There are even capabilities for automatic or manual trip capture.

With a user-validated design and sophisticated underlying platform, Equo offers customers a personalized experience where engagement is based on preference. Since every company is different, Equo offers the flexibility to support a variety of business vehicle reimbursement programs, including cents-per-mile (CPM), fixed and variable rate (FAVR) and fleet.

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. More than 190 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners.

Judges' comments about Equo included, "Love the integrations and simplicity. Has great consumer feel for a B2B application with clearly strong adoption," and "Great App for business customers! Leveraging latest technology and phone sensors to automatically detect when an employee is driving so as to build a mileage log, is genius. I like the idea of reducing paper work."
