Jaama to host new ‘fleet management essentials’ seminars

Jaama is hosting four more of its one-day Fleet Management Essentials seminars in April, covering hot topics such as grey fleet management, car salary sacrifice, employee driver licence checking and carbon footprint cutting strategies.

 The seminars will also highlight:

  • The costs associated with running a vehicle fleet and how to effectively control and reduce them - including employer and employee taxation - in the continuing challenging economic climate
  • Key performance indicators to measure to ensure optimum fleet efficiency and effectiveness
  • How to carry out comprehensive risk assessments and implement robust risk management policies
  • The impact of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and how it effects organisations
  • How to reduce the administrative burden of fleet management by introducing technology
  • The impact of Driver CPC legislation and why it is important for businesses operating commercial and passenger-carrying vehicles. 

Delegates will be given policy templates and best practice fact sheets which they can adapt to meet their own fleet requirements. 

Additionally, they will have the opportunity to trial Jaama’s RiskAssistant or FleetAssistant software free for three months. 

Seminars start with registration at 9.30am and conclude with an open question and answer session from 4pm. 

Fleet Managements Essentials seminars will be held on:

  • Tuesday 23 April, 2013 – Holiday Inn Leeds/Brighouse
  • Wednesday 24 April, 2013 – Jaama’s head office, Tamworth
  • Thursday, 25 April, 2013 – DeVere Hotel, Swindon
  • Tuesday 30 April, 2013 – Holiday Inn, Runcorn.

Seminar prices have once again been held at the reduced price of £295 + VAT per delegate including all course documentation, policies (usually priced at £120), lunch and refreshments.

Martin Evans, sales and operations director at Jaama, said: “Our entire seminar programme has proved very popular in the nine years it has been running. 

“The seminars are particularly attractive to administrators and managers who have the responsibility but not necessarily the experience or specialist knowledge of running a fleet of vehicles, as well as fleet professionals who require an update on new legislation and a refresher on best practice and new developments in managing a fleet of vehicles. 

“The whole area of fleet management can be daunting, especially in the current climate of stringent cost control, environmental impact reduction and ensuring comprehensive duty of care for employees.

"In addition, we recognise and appreciate that operators of smaller or employee-owned fleets do not always have the luxury of a full time dedicated fleet manager and often the responsibility for the fleet can be across departments meaning that the impact of new legislation and refinements to best practice can be missed.”
