ARI’s Bill Powell Speaks at SAP’s ‘Best Practices for Automotive’ Conference

Bill Powell, director of information management for ARI, appeared at the “Best Practices for Automotive” conference hosted by SAP October 17 – 19 at the MGM Grand in Detroit, Michigan. Powell’s presentation, “The Next Generation of Telematics: Asset Management in the Millions,” described how ARI’s telematics capabilities have developed from awareness into advanced systems with optics into asset use and deep insight into lifecycle costing.

Because of the company’s continuous investment of 25 percent of its operating budget back into technology solutions year over year, ARI has been able to accommodate the exponential increase in the number of vehicles and equipment reporting into its telematics program and the massive increase in the volume of data generated. At the same time, it has developed proprietary solutions to help fleets not just see what is happening with their fleets in real-time, but also support predictive analysis which in turn can help lower total cost of ownership.

The Best Practices for Automotive conference unites hundreds of industry professionals – senior leadership, decision-makers, business process owners, analysts, super users, support teams and solution providers – in one location for an experiential event built around learning, innovation and peer collaboration. Best Practices for Automotive is an interactive experience specifically designed to allow attendees to embrace innovative solutions, fresh ideas and best in class strategies that can improve an organization’s overall business performance.
