Topic 4 – Connected Technology Learning Streams

As the advantages of connected technology are slightly different for corporate fleet and mobility managers on the one hand and supply chain specialists and resellers on the other, we present two dedicated learning streams where you will get information and expertise fit for your connectivity profile. The only thing you need to do to get the information that suits your professional needs, is select the stream that fits your profile.


13:30     Maintenance, Repair & Operating Cost

  • Connected technology to increase operational fleet efficiency at Nelt (for Corporate Fleet Buyers)

Vehicle technology and telematics support the operational efficiency of a fleet. But how does a fleet manager look at the role and the value of telematics and connectivity, what are the areas where value can be created and how to approach the introduction and implementation of connected technology? In this case study presentation, the audience will get inspired about the way an international company envisions connected technology for its fleet.

  • Tachograph Compliance Services – Open Platform (for Supply Chain & Resellers)

It has been a while ago when tachographs recorded vehicle speed on diagram charts only. Smart Tachographs provides valuable, trusted information on one side to support fleet managers reducing infringements but also to use the data for workflows a fleets’ daily business. Current Smart Tachographs provide GPS information and a status about the willingness of the driver to share his data. Next generations of smart tachographs will provide even more data and play an important role in the logistic supply chain. With service solutions building up on this trusted data, fleet managers can get real time information if an infringement is soon to occur, fleets performance concerning infringements can be monitored or other systems fed with working time related data.

14:30     Increased Productivity

  • What comes after Fleet Management? IoT Fleet Automation! (for Corporate Fleet Buyers)

Fleet owners suffer from an overabundance of fleet information from multiple fleet management systems, yet lack the ability to put that information to work for them automatically. Today’s alerts are automated but the actions typically that follow are manual. With a fleet automation platform, you’re able to pick up where fleet management systems leave off, with automations that reassign drivers, call for maintenance, and immobilize stolen vehicles. In this session, you will learn:

- How technology can be used to digitalize fleets and fleet operations

- How fleet data can be used to create actionable insights and automated - workflows

How to leverage multiple telematics platforms to make switching vehicles or drivers completely handled through digital means.
