Fleet Owner and Truckload Carriers Association will present internationally recognized mobile resource management expert, Clement Driscoll, along with Leo Tang, senior market development manager for Research in Motion, in a live Webcast on March 10. The speakers will discuss the use of handheld devices in the trucking industry and the future for such devices in light of new and pending regulations. The live event is being offered at no charge thanks to sponsors Xata and Sprint.
The market for handheld communication devices of all types has been taking off worldwide. More and more businesses, large and small, are finding that handheld computers and other mobile communication devices can expand their ability to manage remote assets and workers-- but the 100% portability of handhelds has its challenges, too.
The Webcast will address the questions fleets are asking about handhelds today, including:
- Why are more fleets investing in mobile resource management devices?
- Can handhelds or cab-mounted devices with GPS and subscription-based applications help even smaller fleets on smaller budgets?
- Will the pending EOBR regulation or the distracted driving regulation impact fleets that are using or want to use handhelds?
- Is it possible to manage the use of handhelds to maximize the benefits and minimize risk?
