Despite 77 percent of fleets using telematics, most are not taking full advantage of the benefits offered by these systems.
Since the technology is embedded in the vehicle, the system provides fleet managers real-time information which can be used to improve more than just vehicle efficiencies and lower fuel costs. A somewhat known, but not yet fully understood area for this technology, is that it can be used to support companies’ safety initiatives. The telematics devices actually allow fleet managers to analyze drivers’ performances more accurately than ever before.
However, according to a 2018 survey, only 43 percent of fleet companies use telematics systems to measure performance. That means more than half of corporations are missing out on an opportunity to further elevate their fleets’ safety.
Motus released its 2019 Mobile Workforce Benchmark Report, which identified rising costs, increased business mileage and volatile fuel prices as key trends that affected the mobile workforce in 2018.
Motus found that the average business mileage per mobile worker increased for the fourth year in a row. Americans drove 20 billion more miles than a year ago, despite higher average fuel prices, which accounted for 25 percent of the total cost to own and operate a vehicle in 2018.

Make sure to attend conference-wide events like keynote addresses…When it comes to smaller sessions, consider both the speaker and the subject matter.
