Best Practices for an Effective Driver Policy
Elizabeth Wills, Director, Fleet Administrative Services
The fleet policy is the most important document that drivers must follow. Effective fleet policies are comprehensive, enforceable, and structured in a manner that is easy for drivers to understand. Driver compliance is critical to the success of any fleet program. As a fleet manager, monitoring policy compliance may seem difficult…but, it’s not. Data will tell you how well drivers are following your rules, identify areas where policies need to be reinforced, and allow you to make business decisions to optimize your fleet performance. This is a must attend session for any fleet professional to learn how to drive compliance and improve fleet policies through real-life examples.
The True Cost of Compliance
Will Yarbrough, Sales Manager, Fleetio
Keeping up with changing regulations that vary across each state is a top concern for fleets. Many fleet managers aren’t clear on how to effectively ensure regulatory compliance on an ongoing basis. In this session, we’ll explore the latest regulations around fleet vehicle inspections and outline what fleets need to be doing to strengthen inspection processes and avoid hefty penalties and inflated costs.

ELD: Just the Facts
John Seidl, Transportation Consultant, Integrated Risk Solutions Pete Allen, Executive Vice President, MiX Telematics
The upcoming ELD mandate is the biggest technological change fleet managers have faced in nearly 30 years. There is a lot of technical information out there (anyone read the FMCSA’s 516-page Final Rule doc?), but a shortage of straight-facts summaries.
Preparing the Fleet Manager of Tomorrow
John J. Wuich, CAFM, Vice President Strategic Consulting Services, Donlen Corporation
Course Description: The role of the fleet manager is changing. Fleet managers have to be more strategic, and they have to think more like financial analysts. In this course, you will learn about thinking strategically, and presenting quality cost-saving scorecards to your executive team.
Application of Advanced Technologies on Risk Management/Crash Reduction
Michael Backman, General Manager, Mobileye
Through the use of artificial intelligence, Collision Avoidance Systems (CAS) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are ushering in a transformation in road safety. The technology is able to detect lane markings, vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists. In doing so, the systems can perform detailed interpretations of the visual field in order to anticipate possible collisions. The technology is revolutionizing road safety as regulatory authorities around the world are increasingly mandating the technology for vehicle makers for all of its life-preserving qualities.
Motor Fuel Tax Refunds

Fleet Management and The Connected Vehicle
Advanced Use Cases - The Next Generation of Telematics
Jenny Malcolm, GPS Insight
While telematics has already proven to be a resourceful tool for many fleets, there is far more to the story than just real-time vehicle locations, idle time, and speed monitoring. The fleet industry has stopped looking at telematics as dots on a map; fleet professionals are using this data to enhance operations throughout their entire business and overcome significant business challenges.

Demystifying Electric Vehicles - Understanding the Complexities, Costs and Savings Potential
Michelle Wright, Vision Fleet Capital
This session will provide an overview of the technologies, considerations, costs, and savings related to electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV/PHEVs) in the fleet setting. Electric vehicles can provide substantial benefits to fleet operators including operating cost savings, greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and a hedge against volatile fuel prices. For a busy fleet manager, however, it may be daunting to navigate the complexities of assessing and incorporating EVs into fleet operations. Focusing on light-duty electric vehicles, this session will cover the following: 1) EV technology landscape; 2) appropriate EV use cases; 3) total cost of ownership dynamics; 4) charging infrastructure; 5) educating drivers; 6) program monitoring and reporting. Presenters will also provide several case studies of recent fleet EV deployments.
Alternative Fuels and Sustainability
The alternative fuel market is diverse and still developing, so understanding the various alternative fuel options that would work for your fleet might seem like a daunting task. The key for success is understanding key differentiators, recognizing what changing fuel prices mean in the long run and relating your alternative fuel plan to your company’s objectives.
Applying Multiple Remarketing Channels for Maximum Exposure
Remarketing a vehicle at the end of its life cycle can be a tedious task. Knowing not just how much a vehicle is worth, but also the best way to promote it can be overwhelming. Having the greatest knowledge and flexibility of remarketing options available can maximize vehicle proceeds, while meeting operational and budgetary constraints.
Multi-level employee sale programs, internet sales, and traditional auctions and dealer outlets ensure the vehicle is sold, but doing so simultaneously ensures it is done quickly. In this webinar, ARI's Jim Jackson, Vehicle Remarketing Supervisor, will discuss how utilizing multiple industry remarketing channels can target unique buyer groups for a quicker sale.
Could Your Company be Liable for Distracted Driving Crashes
Motor vehicle collisions are the #1 cause of employee fatalities (OSHA) and distracted driving is now one of the most significant contributing factor to these collisions. Could Your Company Be Liable? According to the National Safety Council's 2014 Injury Facts, the three biggest causes of fatalities on the road include distracted driving, alcohol and speeding. With a high level of user interactivity, dynamic content that adapts to the driver's profile and interactive responses, full motion videos, animations, full course narration, and closed captioning throughout the course, the 90-minute Distracted Driving Online course is designed to change drivers' attitudes related to distracted driving so that they pledge to stop texting, stop talking on their cell phone, and stop checking/responding to e-mails while driving.
It's your legal responsibility and obligation to eliminate this needless, deadly risk! SafetyServe.com and the National Safety Council have the solution. Distracted Driving Online! Join us on May 20th for an insightful overview of this new and effective training program.
Enhanced Violation Management Techniques to Identify High-Risk Drivers
Addressing unsafe driving behavior is a top priority for most fleets if an unsafe driver causes an accident, the fleet will be held liable. Fleets often look to a driver’s motor vehicle record (MVR) to determine if that driver has a safe driving history. However, many tickets, such as red-light and speed camera violations, do not appear on MVRs in most states, creating a significant blind spot, or liability gap, for the fleet. If fleets do not address this liability gap, they are at increased risk of having unsafe drivers on the road. This webinar would provide details about the growth of traffic cameras, explaining how the technology works, and discuss ways enhanced violation management techniques can help fleets identify all unsafe drivers and effectively close the liability gap.
