A Fleet Manager’s Guide to Payment Networks

Originally aired: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Fleet cards aren’t all the same, and neither are their networks. Proprietary fleet cards own their networks and can customize how its programs work. This can lead to more security, better control over fuel expenditures, and efficient management of expenses. The differences between open loop and closed loop networks will be reviewed, as well as more detail about how they process transactions differently. Learn more about the benefits of fleet card networks, and how you can leverage them to improve efficiency and gain benefits for your organization.

  1. Implement a future-proofed telematics solution

Suffering from Buyer’s Remorse with Telematics?

Originally aired: 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

Using GPS/AVL for Liability Protection in Government Agencies

Originally aired: Tuesday, April 19, 2016 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

GPS/AVL is now becoming a standard defense tool in legal proceedings across North America. By collecting information from your equipment such as speed, location, and the status of your plow or spreader, you can prove that your agency properly maintained the road on which an accident occurred, that your vehicle was nowhere near the scene of an accident, or that you met expected patrol service level requirements. Regardless of the type of claim, GPS/AVL data is an expected and accepted method to mitigate liability exposure. Learn what you need to look for in a GPS/AVL solution to ensure your agency has access to admissible data for maximum liability protection.

You will walk away with:
• An understanding of how other government agencies use GPS/AVL to challenge claims
• A strategy on how to implement a GPS/AVL solution that addresses your liability concerns
• The ability to educate your agency on the benefits of GPS/AVL for liability management

Tires are a Depreciating Asset: 10 Ways to Slow the Rate of Depreciation

By Mike Antich
As a wear item, tires are a depreciating asset. Your job, as the fleet manager, is to slow the rate of depreciation. Replacement tires as a cost category are a fleet’s second-largest operating expense, exceeded only by fuel. By maximizing tire tread life, you lower per-mile costs, resulting in fewer premature removals and optimizing the condition of tire casings, allowing for multiple retreads.
