Being on both sides of trailer tracking technology — as a customer using the technology to optimize my company’s trailer fleet operations and bottom line, and now as a member of the team. developing and innovating the technology
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
Spireon, Inc., the leading provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solutions used by the trucking industry to maximize mobile assets and workforces, is proud to announce that Mike Edwards, the Vice President of Professional Services, has been invited to participate in a panel discussion at this year’s TMW Systems User Conference and Exhibition event, TransForum 2012.
Prior to joining the Spireon team, Mike Edwards served as the Business Process Manager for Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated (CCBCC), the nation’s largest independent Coca-Cola bottler with a fleet of more than 800 trailers and 250 tractors operating across the Southeastern U.S. In that role, Edwards oversaw the implementation of CCBCC’s FleetLocate GPS-based Trailer Asset and Intelligence Solution developed by Spireon. As a result of the implementation, CCBCC realized significant savings in reduced labor hours, trailer rental and leasing fees, preventative maintenance-related fees and pallet-loading line shutdowns.
As the Vice President of Spireon’s Professional Services, Edwards directs the company’s customized solution development to ensure alignment with the trucking industry’s challenges, needs and goals. He will be joining a moderated panel of other industry experts on Monday, September 24 at 3:30 p.m. in a session titled “Trends and Technology in Trailer Tracking."
“I have the unique perspective of being on both sides of trailer tracking technology — as a customer using the technology to optimize my company’s trailer fleet operations and bottom line, and as a member of the team developing and innovating the technology that resolves customer challenges,” explains Edwards.
“I’m confident that TransForum attendees will walk away from this discussion armed with invaluable information, strategies and tools they can use to drive the profitable performance of their trailer fleets,” adds Edwards.
One of the largest educational, networking and collaborative events in the transportation industry, TransForum 2012 is offered only for customers of TMW Systems. TransForum 2012 begins this Sunday, September 23, ending Wednesday, September 26 at The Peabody Orlando in Orlando, FL.
