Edition 10


One of the hottest buzz phrases in business at the moment is Big Data and in fleet leasing virtually everyone I talk to agrees it has huge implications for how fleets will be run, but privately most leaseco directors are unclear on where to start.

Think about it, as vehicles become increasingly 'connected' they produce more data that can be used for management and as the fleet and vehicle leasing sector gets involved in end to end mobility solutions, the volume of data available will multiply exponentially.

Recognising that one of the biggest challenges for leasing companies will be having sufficiently robust systems to manage and make sense of all that data our Technical Director Martin Drake is using this issue to look at some of the key big data wins to be had for leasing companies.
