Jon Abbott, director at Cardinus Risk Management, said, “There are real cost savings to be achieved through effective use of relevant telemetry data in terms of fuel usage, collision reduction and maintenance costs, not to mention the opportunity to reduce insurance premiums.
“Telemetry is the way forward in supporting fleet risk management, as this forum will reveal. Presenting all this expertise and information in a half-day forum means an extremely productive morning, with refreshments available throughout. The whole forum will provide valuable practical advice on how to make vehicle telematics work for your fleet and secure road safety and financial benefits. We have some outstanding expert speakers.”
Jeremy Guscott and Colin Hartley, both directors at JGCH Consulting, will present a short history of vehicle telemetry before describing the industry today and listing the key players.
