Acuity to talk M&A at Connected Fleets Europe 2015

Acuity Advisors’ own Matt Stamp will be speaking at the Connected Fleets Europe 2015 conference, which is to be held over 10th and 11th of March in Amsterdam.

The event focuses on the increasingly dynamic fleet management sector, as innovation and new technologies are driving progress and new opportunities for companies. Some of the most exciting developments and topics in the sector include:

  • Modern supply chain evolution: Innovations in upstream and downstream supply-chains provide the disruptive concepts, including drone delivery and synchro-modal transportation that are set to define the future of connected fleets and logistics;
  • Fleet solutions in next-gen models: With an upsurge in car sharing and leasing imminent, solution requirements, from remote unlocking to back end integration with urban infrastructure, can leverage existing fleet technology for changing mobility models;
  • Data standardisation code: Which data sets need to be standardised in order to enable the efficient and scalable management of multiple OEMs, platforms and services providers within a single fleet management hub;
  • Duty of care: The legal, HR and operational demands of fleet managers. A suite of connected services encompassing vehicle diagnostics, workforce management, remote support and driver training can create a motivated, low turnover workforce.
