LeasePlan executives will be presenting at two big industry conferences this week, Fleet Forward Conference in San Jose, Ca., and Connected Fleets USA, Atlanta, Ga.

Felipe Smolka, executive vice president, transformation, joins an exciting panel at Connected Fleets USA, to discuss Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and the challenges it will bring to the fleet industry. Today, MaaS is all about giving people customized and flexible transportation options, but how can existing – and indeed future – technology be leveraged for managing a shared fleet?

“I’m looking forward to the event and to contributing to what I’m sure will be an insightful panel discussion. Mobility-as-a-Service is an exciting area for fleet to move into, but also an extremely important one. MaaS is without a doubt the future of the transportation industry in general, and we’ve already made extensive inroads into solving some of the unique problems faced by consumers in this space. The trucking industry especially is ripe and ready for disruption, and I think we will see that with MaaS.” said Smolka.

Greg Buckland, chief information officer, will co-present a session on data privacy and controls at Fleet Forward. With so much computing power packed into our vehicles today, and continuous streams of data being fed back and analyzed, we need to be careful to ensure that strict privacy regulations and protocols are always followed. And it can get confusing fast. This panel seminar takes the data conversation to the next step for fleets, understanding how the data will be accessed and data governance usage, obtaining driver consents to use their data, and much more.

Buckland had this to say: “I am excited to be part of a conference that focuses on tech in fleet. As our lives become more connected we must pay close attention to the increase of data in our vehicles and from our vehicles. Security often becomes a second thought to progress. GDPR and now CCPA are bringing security and privacy back into focus where it should be. More than ever it is important to establish best practices around driver and vehicle data to continue to harvest the benefits from it while keeping our clients’ information protected.”
