Helion Trucking Technologies has announced that Erik Nachbahr will present “The State of IT for the Heavy Trucking Industry” at the upcoming Karmak Leadership & Technology Conference in St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 17-19.
In Nachbahr’s session, truck dealers will learn the must-have technologies to operate at peak efficiency in 2018, and will also learn the latest benchmarks for their dealerships’ internet service, phone systems, wifi capacity and more. Additionally Nachbahr will address cyber security risks and prevention, and how to scale technology for growth and expansion, the company says.
“Truck dealers often view IT as a cost of doing business, rather than as an investment that can help them become more competitive,” Nachbahr says. “In this industry time is money and an outdated IT infrastructure can result in downtime, lost revenue, reduced customer retention and loss of employee buy-in.”
The annual Karmak conference brings heavy-duty truck dealership personnel together from across North America. Attendees learn and discuss strategies to work more efficiently in business, while networking with others in the heavy-duty industry.
Helion offers 24-hour monitoring, managing and problem resolution for truck dealerships’ computers, servers, networks and phone systems. Additionally, Helion collaborates with carrier partners to ensure adequate and resilient Internet and phone connectivity that support business goals. Helion also takes care of security, patch management, data backup, recovery and more.
Nachbahr’s session is scheduled during the lunch break at the Karmak conference, on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark.
