PRINCETON, NJ - Fleet managers have created a guide to help fleets utilize technology for easier and more time- and cost-efficient fleet management.

NAFA's Information Technology Guide, now available, provides fleet managers with the tools needed to function in a data-rich, information-poor work environment by better using technology tools they most likely already have at their disposal, according to NAFA Fleet Management Association. 

"With technology becoming increasingly more important in fleet management, NAFA's Information Technology Guide is a rare gem of information for fleet managers," noted project leader Doug Weichman, CAFM, director, fleet management, Palm Beach County, Fla. "It provides an excellent overview of the technology that we all have to interface with every day."

With more than 130 pages of information, the new guide is user-friendly, easy to read, and breaks down technology terminology into the most basic of terms. Detailed chapters explore all aspects of technology including: information infrastructure; computer software; researching the Internet; telematics; security, backup, and recovery; and ergonomic computing.

The book is intended for all fleet managers in both private and public sectors. The Guide is currently available as an e-download ($29 for NAFA members, $43 for non-members). In late October, the guide will also be made available on CD ($49 for NAFA members, $82 for non-members) or as a soft-cover, spiral-bound book ($79 for NAFA members, $115 for non-members).
