Fleet professionals from across the nation will converge on the Hilton Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J. on Oct. 18 and 19 for the Dossier Fleet Maintenance Software Users Group meeting. Group chairman Doug White — director of fleet maintenance for Hunt Valley, Md.-based Dunbar Armored — announced that the agenda for the two-day event includes a panel discussion addressing current initiatives targeting high fuel costs, along with an OEM presentation on hybrid vehicles.
Other panel topics include lowering parts inventory costs through better management procedures, improvements in accident tracking and reporting, a review and critique of new and proposed Dossier program features and enhancements, and topic-specific breakout sessions. Multi-level training sessions on the new Dossier fleet software version 4.3 will be performed by the program’s developer, Arsenault Associates.
“This independent, no-nonsense group represents a broad range of large and small fleets from many diverse industries that operate and maintain tens of thousands of vehicles,” says Charles Arsenault, president of Atco, N.J.-based Arsenault Associates, the developer of Dossier Fleet Maintenance Software. “These people know what they want, and they’re not afraid to speak their minds. The Dossier Users Group has been a driving force in the program’s development since 1988. Their ideas, comments and no-holds-barred straight talk carry a lot of weight with us.”
All users of the Dossier Fleet Software, whether they are active user group members or not, are encouraged to attend the fleet technology meeting.
