Fleet presentation scores top marks with supply management executives.
Procurement executives gave NAFA rave reviews for its presentation on The Economics of Fleet at the recent Institute for Supply Management (ISM) annual conference in Orlando.
Nearly 150 supply chain experts attended the fleet-centric session presented by NAFA’s Director of Professional Development, Katherine Vigneau, CAFM, who taught the audience how to apply a lifecycle approach to their fleet and calculate the optimal replacement point for a given vehicle.
“Your fleet is not just another commodity that can be managed like any other widget,” Vigneau said. “Applying a lifecycle approach to fleet management requires specialty knowledge and experience that is not gained simply because you own your own vehicle. You need a fleet management expert on your staff to make sure this is done consistently and done correctly.”
NAFA’s message clearly resonated with the audience, so much so that the ISM invited NAFA to make an encore presentation at its Indirect Procurement Conference this November in Las Vegas.
