ARI to Demonstrate New and Updated Tech Offerings at the 2015 NAFA I&E

ARI announced its fleet and technology experts will be present at the NAFA Institute & Expo scheduled for April 14-17, 2015 in Orlando, Florida.

In Booth #801, expo attendees can talk with the company’s award-winning Information Technology team, who will be conducting demonstrations of the ARI insights® system’s recent upgrades. This includes a new dashboard design that incorporates hundreds of new intuitive, visually-based widgets covering nearly every aspect of fleet management. These widgets transform all of a fleet’s data into simple, easy-to-interpret visual elements. Making the data easy to see and understand empowers the user to make smarter, faster data-based decisions about their fleet and helps them to spot and resolve issues more quickly than ever before. Attendees will also get a sneak peek at many items scheduled for release in 2015, including an innovative new driver scorecard; a new order status page; vendor details; a vehicle replacement analysis model and more.
