Influential speakers line up for online conference

THE speaker line-up for this year's Manage Your Fleet Online conference has now been finalised and tickets are selling fast.

The event, hosted by Fleet News and Fleet NewsNet, will cover every aspect of operating a fleet online, from the very first steps to introducing new systems in specific areas, such as vehicle acquisition, rental purchasing, fuel management, vehicle management, maintenance control and disposals.

Among the leading fleet industry experts who will be talking about how to use the internet to best advantage are John Maslen, editor of Fleet News; Neil McCrossan, vice-president, sales and marketing for National Car Rental; Ashley Sowerby, managing director of Chevin Fleet Solutions and David Hosking, sales and marketing director at Tuskerdirect.

Fuel card giant AllStar will host a presentation on the current possibilities created by online fleet management and Greg Connell, managing director of 1Link, will reveal how online maintenance management can slash costs.

In a session dedicated to disposals, remarketing giant BCA Europe will provide a corporate and customer viewpoint of what web-based systems have to offer.

Two key security issues will be addressed in a special section of the conference, with Checkwizard (also known as FD Tek) examining the security implications of allowing employees access to the internet, while Simon Drummond, web services and product manager for Siemens VDO, will look at the benefits of web-based tracking systems for keeping employees safe on the road.

To sum up the day, Jason Francis, managing director of cfc solutions, will be looking at how a fleet could co-ordinate the use of online systems to create a virtually paper-free, low maintenance operation and what the future could bring.

As well as a host of speakers, there will be a number of exhibitors at the event, including ABS Bodyshop Services, Siemens VDO Trading, cfc solutions, Chevin Fleet Solutions, BP, Elite Incident Management, Cybit, Platinum Fleet Management and National Car Rental.
