Free fleet forum looks at telematics

A free forum organised by Cardinus Risk Management aims to provide valuable advice and information for anybody with responsibility for at-work drivers and managing vehicle fleet risk.

In particular, the forum will discuss telematics and the way new technological developments have addressed the earlier challenges associated with telematics.

Making telematics part of your fleet risk programme will be held on Thursday, June 26, in London. It will start with coffee and registration at 9.30am and will finish no later than 1pm.

Jon Abbott, director at Cardinus Risk Management, said: “There are real cost savings to be achieved through effective use of relevant telemetry data in terms of fuel usage, collision reduction and maintenance costs, not to mention the opportunity to reduce insurance premiums.

“The forum will provide valuable practical advice on how to make vehicle telematics work for your fleet and secure road safety and financial benefits. We have some outstanding expert speakers.”

Jeremy Guscott and Colin Hartley, both directors at JGCH Consulting, will present a short history of vehicle telemetry before describing the industry today and listing the key players.

They will then look at where the industry is heading, suggesting some of the new opportunities that telematics might offer in the future before finishing off with a live data demonstration.
