Applying Multiple Remarketing Channels for Maximum Exposure

Date: 07/17/2015

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

Enhanced Violation Management Techniques to Identify High-Risk Drivers

Date: 01/22/2015

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.
