The dynamic video series explores complex business challenges throughout the vehicle’s lifecycle to help viewers maximize their fleet’s revenue-generating capabilities
ARI® has launched an all-new interactive video experience designed to help fleet stakeholders successfully navigate their complex business challenges. The eight-part video series, highlights how an organization’s fleet investment can influence the company’s overall success, providing insight that allows viewers to maximize their fleet’s revenue-generating potential.
“For most organizations, fleet represents a significant investment but all too often, fleet is viewed as a cost center with a myopic focus on simply containing costs,” said Rick Tousaw, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, ARI. “One of the goals of this video series is to change the lens through which fleet is viewed and help stakeholders solve their real-world business challenges that transcend fleet.”
