First 1link Live conference for fleet users proves strong success
More than 150 delegates attended the first-ever conference for users of epyx’s 1link fleet platforms, gaining from insight into product updates as well as wider developments in motoring and mobility.
1link Live was held at The Slate, Warwick University on 19 September and included speakers such as Professor Paul Jennings, lead for connected and autonomous vehicles at Warwick Manufacturing Group and Nick King, insight director at Auto Trader.
There were also presentations from Alan King, group president, Europe and Australasia of epyx’s parent company, Fleetcor, and Aditya Varadpande, managing director of epyx.
Users were given insight into some of the latest, best practice thinking for the 1link platforms as well as looking at ways to help tackle emerging issues facing the fleet sector.
Varadpande said: “Our 1link platforms set the fleet industry standards for service and maintenance, short-term hire, vehicle purchase and disposal, and are crucial to the success of our customers.
He added: “We are always looking for new ways to communicate with our users and now seemed an excellent time to hold our first 1link conference and tell them about the latest developments at epyx ranging from the investments we are making to new technology. “1link Live was very well supported and feedback from delegates showed that they found it very useful, both in terms of how to maximise the benefits of working with us and looking at some of the wider developments in the fleet, motor and transport sectors.
“The whole exercise was very successful, we believe, and we are discussing holding a repeat event covering similar ground in 2020.”
