Microlise Confirms Agenda For Commercial Motor Show Event

With a focus on knowledge-sharing and cutting-edge fleet technology, we are delighted to confirm our agenda for the third day of the Commercial Motor Show on Thursday 1 October 2020.

During the day, our team of subject experts and customers will discuss a range of technology and services that are driving improved levels of fleet excellence and efficiency.

Our first session of the day will focus on compliance as Lee Oliver, Head of Sales at TruTac, outlines how to reduce administrative time while maintaining a robust compliance approach by using technology to manage everything from drivers hours and tachograph analysis through to vehicle maintenance and daily checks.

Many operators who deploy fleet technologies are quick to see initial improvements by focusing on driver performance but then can see results plateau as they struggle to realise gains across the rest of the business. Our second speaker of the day, Neil Selby, one of our Senior Transformation Managers, will discuss how to maximise the safety, efficiency and cost benefits of technology over the long term.

Mike Ellis, Business Development Director at Abbey Logistics will then share some key customer learnings from the recent UK lockdown by reviewing data and highlighting the operational benefits the business realised. As normal conditions resume, Mike will also discuss how the wider industry and Government might implement positive change based on these findings.

As contactless interaction across the supply chain becomes the new normal, Bernie Warner, Senior Pre-Sales Consultant, will discuss how technology reduces the need for human interaction while driving improved fleet benefits and efficiencies.

Stephen Watson, Product Director at Microlise will then offer a glimpse of our technology-enabled future by looking at what the world might look like in years to come in light of advances in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and other technologies.

As operators work to manage safe fleets and gear up for Direct Visions Standards, Fenton Baker, Product Owner at Microlise, will outline the myriad benefits of vehicle cameras including how they can be used to reduce risk, enhance safety and support driver training. He will also discuss how real-world footage can be combined with telematics data to create a deeper understanding of what happened during incidents and near-misses.

While Transport and logistics firms have been early adaptors of connected technology, many other industries across agriculture and machine manufacturing are taking note. David Midgley our OEM & Channel Director will look at some of the challenges of building a successful Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
