CAFM Asset Management

Instructors: Kate Vigneau, CAFM and Mike Wilson, CAFM
Fleet Managers are asset managers. As such, they are tasked with Asset Management responsibilities that include vehicle selection, procurement, commissioning, disposal, remarketing and decommissioning. Because fleet assets and costs related to these assets often represent a significant portion of an organization's net value and operating expenses, fleet managers that are skilled in Asset Management can significantly improve an organization's profitability and/or cost effectiveness.
You will learn:
  • How to develop effective vehicle selector lists.
  • The key elements in developing vehicle specifications.

CAFM Business Management

Fleet management is a subset of the wider discipline of business management. Fleet managers must therefore have a good understanding of common business practices including the regulatory and legal environment, writing skills, the Request for Proposal (RFP), and creating fleet policies. Even though many organizations have specialists to assist fleet managers in these specific domains, there is significant value to fleet managers understanding these issues.

CAFM Information Management
