ARI to Offer Free Webinar on Importance of Maintenance Technicians

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (February 16, 2016) – ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, announced today that John Herold, fleet management support representative, will conduct a free online webinar to discuss the importance of maintenance technicians as an extra set of eyes to make cost-conscious decisions for a fleet.

The webinar, “Maintenance Technicians – Your Cost Savings Consultants,” is scheduled for Tuesday, February 23 at two convenient times for attendees: 11:00 am and 2:00 pm EST.

“Most successful organizations have some sort of maintenance program in place, whether it is in-house or with a third party provider,” commented Herold. “However, as a fleet continues to grow, it is important for fleet managers to not only have these extra sets of eyes monitoring the repair process, but also make recommendations to ensure repairs are handled on time and within budget with the fleet’s best interests in mind. This is where I believe a maintenance technician can really shine.”

During the webinar Herold will review the qualities to look for in qualified maintenance technicians, the job functions of these individuals, as well as conduct a poll to learn what attendees would do during a real-life maintenance repair vs. replace scenario.
