Suffering from Buyer’s Remorse with Telematics?

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

We all know that sense of regret after having made a purchase that seemed so promising, then later realizing we made the wrong choice. Whether it be a car, new home, electronics, or software, buyer’s remorse can have serious consequences, especially with more significant investments like telematics.

Many government fleets select a telematics provider because they are the biggest player in the field or for promised functionality that is “just around the corner,” but find out that the provider or their software falls short of expectations. The good news is that there are other systems that can meet your needs and expectations.

If you are suffering from buyer’s remorse on telematics, we invite you to attend this webinar to learn what to look for in providers that will ensure you receive reliable, consistent connectivity.

This webinar will cover:

  • Customer Service: The Importance of Dedicated Customer Support
  • Scalability: Accurate, Reliable Data and Administration - No Matter Your Fleet Size
  • Streamline Data Management: The Value of APIs and Other Integrations
  • Improve Public and Driver Safety: Get the Tools to Reduce Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities
  • Improve Sustainability: Reduce Your Fleet’s Carbon Footprint and Improve Community Value

Mike MacComiskey, Government Sales, GPS Insight

Successfully Selecting and Implementing a GPS/AVL Solution

Tuesday, September 13, 2016  ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Ensure the solution your stakeholders select is adopted and provides a good return on investment.

At the conclusion of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  1. Implement a future-proofed telematics solution
  2. Recognize what agency-wide buy-in looks like
  3. Anticipate and affect the change management needed for successful adoption

GPS/AVL is no longer considered “nice to have.” Whether government agencies are looking to mitigate liability, reduce costs, or increase accountability and transparency; GPS/AVL systems are slowly becoming a staple in Government fleets.

This webinar will take real world lessons from agencies who have successfully implemented a telematics solution, describe challenges and obstacles they faced, and how they reached their goals. The webinar will focus around three key business practices: aligning your solution with your agency’s key service level indicators, ensuring you obtain buy-in from all affected groups, and preparing your agency and resources to manage the changes that come with implementing new technology

Safety Programs with Monetary Incentives May Encourage Under-Reporting of Incidents

By Mike Antich
Do fleet safety incentives “dis-incentivize” the reporting of safety incidents, especially if employees are monetarily rewarded for achieving a low rate of incidents? Under the umbrella of these monetary-based safety incentive programs is not just cash or bonuses, but also award merchandise, award trips, paid days off, and upgraded vehicles or availability of driver amenity options. The question is whether they are potentially counter-productive to the intent of fleet safety programs?
