Emails are now a standard method of communication, orders are increasingly sent online and there is a wealth of advice available on the 'web'. Even in the past year, there has been an explosion in the number of online services available to fleet decision-makers.
As demand grows for more information on the opportunities and benefits of the internet, Fleet NewsNet and print title Fleet News are joining forces to offer fleet decision-makers an in-depth briefing on what the internet can do for their businesses at the Move Your Fleet Online conference.
The event will be held in association with the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply and takes place on Tuesday, January 28 at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire. It will be chaired by Christopher Macgowan, chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, and will examine the key issues fleet managers will face in doing business on the internet.
Speakers at Move Your Fleet Online will address six of the main areas where fleet decision-makers could benefit from web-based services. An expert will highlight the key benefits and pitfalls of each area and there will also be in-depth case studies from fleets which have taken the plunge.
Among the speakers will be Robert Albright, strategic purchasing director for Royal Mail Group; Sandy Duckett, fleet business manager for Scottish Power; Mike O'Sullivan, business development manager for Ebbon-Dacs and Daren Wiseman, managing editor – current data, for CAP.
During the morning, speakers will analyse the key issues surrounding the impact of going online in the acquisition of cars, management of fleets and the disposal of vehicles. Manufacturers are selling cars to fleets online, giving managers the chance to save both time and money.
For some fleets, online bookings and maintenance authorisations can reduce both administration costs and off-road time. Disposals can be made easier and quicker by going online, too.
In the afternoon, the conference will address three important topics – security of online data and information, the monitoring of cars through their fleet life and the growing impact of telematics, including the use of technology to simplify congestion charging.
