ARI to Showcase Ways to Improve Your Fleet’s ROI at the Fleet Technology Expo

Fleet management expert Mark LeGrand will discuss
emerging technologies and proper vehicle cycling in two breakout sessions

Mount Laurel, NJ, Oct. 11, 2016—ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets with more than one million vehicles North America, the U.K. and Europe, will participate in two presentations at the Fleet Technology Expo October 17-19 in Schaumburg, Illinois.

ARI Director of Sales North and West Mark LeGrand will showcase ways a company can ensure the vehicles in its fleet are on the road supporting positive revenue flow instead of spending unnecessary time in the shop.

“All too often, a fleet is seen as an unavoidable expense – just another cost of doing business,” LeGrand says. “But ARI has a new data-driven approach that will turn that perspective on its head.”

During the October 18 session on emerging technologies, LeGrand will highlight ARI VehicleDowntimeView®, a tool that can pinpoint the exact location of a fleet vehicle under maintenance using GPS and telematics data. It can track the moment it arrives at and departs from more than 68,000 shops in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. The data can identify problematic vehicles and maintenance trends fleet managers can use to improve their maintenance programs. This session will be held at 4:30 p.m. in Schaumburg E ballroom.

On October 19 at 2 p.m. in Schaumburg E ballroom, LeGrand will participate in a panel discussion titled “Do You Keep Vehicles in Service Too Long?” This conversation will highlight the best practices behind an effective vehicle replacement program.

“At a certain point in a vehicle’s lifespan, it will spend more time under repair and out of commission than out on the road doing the job it’s meant to do,” LeGrand said. “Knowing when to properly cycle your vehicles can keep your fleet up and running with less downtime, and having a strategic plan to support that effort can also help drive more capital dollars back into your budget.”

In support of its customers’ remarketing efforts, ARI offers a comprehensive suite of services to maximize receive the best return on their vehicles.

The Fleet Technology Expo brings together fleet professionals from all industries seeking technology’s help to work more efficiently.

On the show floor at Booth 204, the ARI team will be available to demonstrate its latest revolutionary fleet management tool ARI VehicleDowntimeView, as well as the ARI DriverScorecard® and the new ARI Driver insights® iPhone app.
