Route planning and scheduling software specialist, Maxoptra, is one of a small number of specially selected partners joining forces with TomTom Telematics at the newly launched 'Let's Explore: LCV Fleet 2017' event, which takes place on the 4th July at The Vox, Resorts World, Birmingham.
Designed to throw a spotlight on the future of LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) fleet management, 'Let's Explore: LCV Fleet 2017' will include industry insights and advice from futurologist Dr James Bellini, automotive financing expert professor Colin Tourick and the Freight Transport Association's Head of Vans Mark Cartwright.
The event will also feature the Technology Village exhibitor area, giving delegates the opportunity to network and discover how technology, such as Maxoptra's cloud based dynamic scheduling and route optimisation software, can help them manage their mobile workforce.
"It is an enormous privilege to be invited to partner with TomTom at this event," commented Maxoptra Business Development Director Stuart Brunger. "Having been involved in fleet telematics since its inception, for many years I have been convinced that the future for the industry lies in a coming together of technologies - combining cloud based planning and real time auto-allocation, as offered by Maxoptra, with in-cab telematics, to deliver a value proposition that drives business growth through competitive advantage."
The event will also feature British racing driver and television presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson, who will share inspirational stories from her life in motor racing and the media. Other speakers at the event will include representatives from BP, HDI Gerling, LeasePlan and TomTom Telematics, with topics ranging from the future of vehicle financing, leasing and compliance to connected vehicle technology, managing fuel and insurance.
"The LCV sector is set for wide ranging changes over the next five years and beyond, from Brexit implications and new regulations to disruptive technologies and emerging risk," said Beverley Wise, Director UK and Ireland at event organiser TomTom Telematics. "Fleet operators need to plan ahead and future-proof their strategies to ensure they remain competitive in this new business landscape."
Maxoptra is a market leading cloud based dynamic scheduling and route optimisation software platform. Although used by some of the largest fleets in the UK and Europe, Maxoptra also appeals to smaller fleet operators as it is easy to use, robust, flexible and well supported. Maxoptra is easy to integrate with existing back office systems and processes, in vehicle telematics and customer service solutions and, being cloud based, is accessible from any Internet enabled device.
