Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is seen by many experts as the future, but for ACFO, the UK’s premier fleet decision-makers’ organisation, it is very much the present, which is why its fourth members’ webinar will focus on ‘Mobility Today’.
In the long-term, ACFO believes that employees should be provided with individual Mobility Cards by their employers that could be used to access all forms of travel, fed from an app that could plan and charge costs accordingly.
However, as MaaS becomes increasingly ‘the norm’ a new breed of corporate mobility managers must analyse the cost of each mile travelled and let technology dictate how a journey is actually made.
What’s more, some businesses are already on the ‘total cost of mobility’ journey with the integration of fleet and travel operations, and those leading that charge will provide an insight during the webinar on the actions they have taken and the challenges faced - both internal and external.
The webinar on Friday, 21 September at 12 noon will be hosted by ACFO digital chairman Julie Summerell and digital secretary James Pestell.
Ms Summerell said: “The world of corporate and employee travel is changing rapidly and so is the way that employers want to reward staff. There is much ‘chat’ about employee mobility management, but there is also uncertainty as to what it means and how it can be achieved by employers.
“Change is being underpinned by the growing ability of technology to provide various services. As technology improves, ACFO believes more companies will become adopters, but the challenge is how the journey from fleet management to mobility management is undertaken, which expert speakers will outline during the webinar.”
The webinar is being sponsored by business mobility and fleet leasing specialist Alphabet (GB) Ltd and is being hosted by well-known energy drink supplier Red Bull from its London offices.
