Technical and Operational Management Forum - February 2018
This forum embraces all the operational aspects of a rental and leasing company's business, including vehicle ordering, purchasing. specification, licensing and recalls.
Technology within vehicles and a new range of connected cars, will make vehicles smarter, safer and more efficient than ever. The maintenance controller’s role is becoming increasingly more challenging. The aim of this portion of the forum is to understand where the technology is going from an SMR perspective and the challenges members, their customers and service providers are facing in order to adapt.
Expert speakers at the forum:
• Gave an overview of data sharing and connected car developments
• Described how as a sector, we are adapting to the changes with data sharing and GDPR
• Informed on the challenges faced in the dealer network with servicing of electric and hybrid vehicles
