Originally aired: Tuesday, November 1, 2016 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

  • Understand your risk of collisions compared to the private sector
  • Learn, first-hand, how your peers are using the Lytx DriveCam™ Program to help reduce risk and costs to stay competitive

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.

Successfully Selecting and Implementing a GPS/AVL Solution

Originally aired: Tuesday, September 13, 2016  ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Ensure the solution your stakeholders select is adopted and provides a good return on investment.

At the conclusion of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  1. Implement a future-proofed telematics solution
  2. Recognize what agency-wide buy-in looks like
  3. Anticipate and affect the change management needed for successful adoption

GPS/AVL is no longer considered “nice to have.” Whether government agencies are looking to mitigate liability, reduce costs, or increase accountability and transparency; GPS/AVL systems are slowly becoming a staple in Government fleets.

This webinar will take real world lessons from agencies who have successfully implemented a telematics solution, describe challenges and obstacles they faced, and how they reached their goals. The webinar will focus around three key business practices: aligning your solution with your agency’s key service level indicators, ensuring you obtain buy-in from all affected groups, and preparing your agency and resources to manage the changes that come with implementing new technology

Chris Jackson, VP, Government Operations, Webtech Wireless, a division of BSM Technologies

Decrease Incidents of Unscheduled Truck Maintenance Caused by Overloading

By Mike Antich
When a truck is overloaded, its operating performance will be strained, accelerating wear-and-tear on brakes and other wear components, such as tire, which have higher failure rates because they run hotter due to the increased load. Another issue is axle overloading, which causes premature wear-and-tear on tires and suspension components.
