Omnitracs Outlook 2017 is just a few short months away and we’re excited to share a great content lineup that will benefit fleets of all sizes and industries.

Key areas of focus for 2017 include regulatory compliance and preparation for the ELD mandate, as well as new hands-on product training, which was requested by customers. 

To give a taste of what we have in store, here are some areas of interest by track:

Training 
Customers reported that they wanted more hands-on product training and we’re delivering a track full of options in 2017. In many of these sessions, attendees will sign in to a training environment and walk through services and the customer portal. Product trainings include Omnitracs Roadnet Anywhere, Omnitracs Navigation, XRS, the ELD Mandate with Enterprise Services, and more.

Compliance
For the majority of attendees, ELD compliance is top of mind. We’re continuing to provide information from the FMCSA, ATA, and other compliance experts so that fleets can prepare. For this conference, we’ll have even more information on how to comply. Additionally, you can find sessions related to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) as well as hear general regulatory updates — ELD and otherwise — directly from the FMCSA.

Data & Analytics
We have plenty of sessions on the impact of big data in transportation. Our data experts are preparing insightful information about how to improve fleet productivity with ELD data, how to predict severe accidents, turning short haul data trends into action, and more.

Planning & Delivery
Attendees who use routing and dispatching solutions will find helpful sessions on how to better use the software, ways to manage drivers, migrating to SaaS-based routing, and routing methodologies. We’re preparing several “Top Ten” sessions that will give attendees clear takeaways that they can start using right after the conference.

Safety & Security
Avoiding litigation, accidents, and cyber threats continue to be themes in this track. We’re bringing in experts to give a legal perspective and cybersecurity knowledge, as well as customers that have used data to improve safety. Breakouts will also cover cargo theft, a topic that’s been in the news lately

Productivity
All fleets want to be more productive and this track will leave attendees with actionable tips on how to integrate applications, save on fuel, improve driver retention, and improve driver-dispatcher communication. Omnitracs partners and customers are joining in on several sessions to share their productivity experiences. 

Go here to view the full list of breakouts.

Omnitracs Outlook 2017 takes place February 26 – March 1 in Phoenix, AZ. Regular priced registration is available through January 15, 2017 with day pass options available. To learn more about the conference, visit www.omnitracs.com/outlook.
