Fleet Data Management & Cybersecurity Conference
Brought to you by the ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council, TMC’s Fleet Data Management & Cybersecurity Conference is the only industry event in trucking solely focused on addressing best practices in fleet data management and cybersecurity.
This one-day conference brings together a community of OEMs, suppliers, software providers, fleet maintenance and data management professionals to address a wide range of prominent issues, such as collecting the right data and putting it into action, and addressing cybersecurity threats.
The conference also addresses the latest on the Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards (VMRS) – a single, concise coding convention to manage fleets’ assets and analyze maintenance operation costs. Developed by TMC, VMRS is the universal language of maintenance cost reporting that helps fleets to identify and address maintenance issues, extract real business value from data collected by fleets, and use it for efficient cost reporting and maximizing fleet efficiencies.
TMC’s Fleet Data Management & Cybersecurity Conference will be immensely valuable for those who are familiar with VMRS, and even for those who are not. Attendees will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge of VMRS and learn how to implement it effectively in their operation. Other topics covered will focus on selecting a fleet management software package, best practices for maximizing utilization, and creating better maintenance reports.
In addition, TMC presents updates on its TMC/FleetNet America Vertical Benchmarking Program, as well as cybersecurity issues with today’s equipment and how ATA’s new Fleet CyWatch program can help.
