Delegates attending Fleet & Mobility Live this year will gain access to expert sessions on how to use data and telematics to improve fleet efficiency.
This year’s free to attend show at the Birmingham NEC on October 5-6 will be the first big opportunity for the fleet industry to gather together face to face again to hear expert insights, share best practice, speak with new suppliers and catch-up with colleagues.
Multi-Fleet News Awards winner Shaun Atton, head of fleet and facilities at Auto Windscreens and Peter Kelly, Elis Group compliance and fleet manager, will present case studies on making the most out of telematics.
Atton and Kelly will show how fleets can pull together all types of vehicle management data to make dramatic improvements in efficiency, safety and sustainability.
The session is part of the Operational Excellence Theatre, which will deliver multiple “how to” sessions with simple, top tips and best practice advice that fleet professionals and business owners can take away and put into practice the next day.
Both Atton and Kelly will offer deep dive case studies into how they have successfully used telematics and data to better their fleets.
While both will be focussing primarily on how telematics systems can help improve petrol and diesel fleets, using data to manage vehicles will become even more important as more and more car and van fleets switch to EVs in the future.
Atton says: “My presentation will look at how to best integrate multiple systems, sorting through the amount of data you’ll have and using it to help coach drivers.
“Telematics shouldn’t be used as a big brother device and it’s not about a hitting stick. You can reward the really good drivers.
“Those attending the show will be able to come away with some practical tips and advice on how they can get the most out of their current systems and how they can better leverage all the data they have at their disposal.”
Elis has already seen dramatic results and big savings due to focussing on getting the most of its telematics and camera systems.
The company has made a £1.2m reduction in insurance claims in just one year, as well as a 98% reduction in speeding incidents within a week of going live.
This is a result of linking in telematics data with the camera systems Elis uses across its fleet.
Kelly says: “The most important thing is extracting all the data you have, integrating systems so you’re dealing with one or as few systems as possible and being able to interrogate it on a regular basis.
“I also think momentum is really important. When you first start embedding telematics and data reporting, there will be a big impact at first, but that energy can start to falter.
“So I'll be talking about the ways you can maintain that momentum after 12-18 months.”
Entry is free to fleet, HR and finance managers.
