Does Mobile PPM guarantee me winning loads?

Once I buy Mobile PPM how do I access it on my phone?
Once you buy your Mobile PPM subscription, look for the 'PPM Data' icon in your CX Driver app.
If you’ve purchased a Mobile PPM subscription but don’t see the icon, try closing and then opening your CX Driver app so the screen refreshes.
If this doesn’t work, please submit a support request.
How is Mobile PPM data calculated?
Mobile PPM is based on aggregated & anonymised data from booked loads on TEG platforms. The data shown will always be yesterday’s average prices-per-mile for the location you’re currently in.
If you move location, your Mobile PPM data will update to show you yesterday’s high, low and average rates based on that new location.
How much is Mobile PPM?
A Mobile PPM subscription is £25 per month, billed annually.
This means, if you are partway through your CX subscription, you’ll only pay for Mobile PPM, for the months left until your next CX renewal. After that, we’ll add your PPM subscription cost to your general CX subscription.

What are the differences between Mobile PPM and Home PPM?
The graphic below shows the main differences between Mobile PPM and Home PPM.
Can I have BOTH Mobile PPM and Home PPM?

What are the benefits of having both Mobile PPM and Home PPM subscriptions?
If you split your time between behind the screen or on the road, pairing Home PPM with Mobile PPM can be particularly beneficial.
With both subscriptions, you can gain a well-rounded, accurate insight into market prices – both on the go and in the office.
With Mobile PPM, you get access to PPM data on the go. This is helpful for when you find yourself in a new location and want to find out the average price-per-mile rates. By knowing this you can quote more accurately and win more work wherever you are.
With Home PPM, you get weekly insight into inbound and outbound PPM data from your home location, which can help you price your backloads more competitively.
What does vehicle tracking location mean?
Your vehicle tracking location is the location your vehicle is in. You’ll need tracking switched on if you want to see Mobile PPM data.

Why do I need to have vehicle tracking on?
Mobile PPM data is based on your current vehicle location.
Because of this, it’s essential your vehicle tracking is on. This is so you can see the correct data for your current location. Without vehicle tracking, Mobile PPM data won’t load.
Please note: You will also need internet access on your phone for vehicle tracking to work.
How do I switch vehicle tracking on?

Whenever you move to a new location, you'll need to manually refresh Mobile PPM data. You can do this in two ways:
1. Tap the ‘Update Location’ button on your app; or
2. Close the app and then open it back up
If your data still isn't refreshing, please raise a support ticket.
