EMORG & Analytics Joint Event, Using Big Data to Improve Efficiencies in Logistics
Please put 25th February at 6pm in your diary for an EMORG and the Analytics Network Joint Event at Loughborough University at 6pm (room BE0.41 in the School of Business and Economics).
Matt Hague from Microlise to talk on how they are starting to use Big Data in the transport industry to benchmark operations, manage risk and make drivers and their managers lives better.
Microlise is one of the world's leading telematics solutions providers, with customers in over 130 countries. @Microlise monitor some of the world’s largest distribution fleets as well as providing white label solutions into OEMs including MAN, DAF and JCB, as well as Tata Motors in India.
In the UK, Microlise track the usage, location, fuel economy and health of over 60,000 HGVs, with Microlise systems processing 4.5 billion miles of driving data per annum. Whilst customers use this data within their operations to more efficiently manage their fleets, Microlise recognises there is a huge potential in leveraging the aggregated and anonymised big data to provide our customers and other third-party organisations with value-added information.
Matt Hague graduated from university in Manchester in 1994. Hopes of joining the RAF were not realised on medical grounds so Matt undertook postgraduate studies and spent a short time in academia, before joining Microlise as a teaching company associate.
Matt has worked for Microlise ever since and was responsible for Microlise's move into telematics and transport management systems nearly 15 years ago. A director of the company for approaching a decade, Matt is now responsible for product strategy, consultancy and marketing. Matt is married with two sons and lives in Ampthill where, when he's not ferrying his boys to various sporting events, attempts to play the occasional game of rugby.
