THE COMPETITIVE EDGE WITH JOE NAMATH™ WELCOMES BISHOP FLEET OPTIMIZATION LLC TO SHOW

Image

Competitive Edge TV™ LLC and O2 Media™ Inc. are proud to announce that Bishop Fleet Optimization LLC will be featured in an upcoming episode of The Competitive Edge with Joe Namath™ slated to air in the 4th Quarter of 2013.

BISHOP Fleet Optimization (BFO) is a multi-national fleet consulting firm that has pioneered the use of 5-week GPS audits to optimize the number of vehicles in fleets, using the company’s own GPS tracking device system.

Derrick Bishop, Managing Director of Bishop Fleet Optimization, will join The Competitive Edge with Joe Namath™ in the upcoming episode entitled “Advances in Fleet Optimization Technology and Applications” to educate viewers on the latest audit techniques. The segment will explore how BFO has helped Government departments and other organizations save millions of dollars through its innovative GPS-based fleet optimization strategy that helps eliminate surplus fleet vehicles and uncovers transport related operational inefficiencies.

Bishop Fleet Optimization has built thousands of GPS units specifically designed to support its fleet consulting business.  The proprietary rapid-deploy GPS units lock into the vehicle lighter socket to gather the 5-week data snapshot.  “A 5-week GPS-based fleet utilization snapshot is all that most organizations need to understand where inefficiencies exist and to quantify the problems to promote organizational change,” explains Bishop.  “The innovation cuts waste not services making it a popular choice for managers.  Additionally, organizations typically make $1,000,000 for every $50,000 spent which creates a welcome funding source to improve cash flow, retire debt or revitalize ‘green’ fleet initiatives that often struggle to find cash.”

“We’re looking forward to having Bishop Fleet Optimization on the show to tell us more in-depth information about their successful innovative 5-week GPS audits which provide a viable solution to help fleet managers,” said Jack Swartz, Senior Producer, The Competitive Edge with Joe Namath™.

Their Competitive Edge:  Providing the Crucial Link between Technology and business Success

Special Guest:  Chris Palermo, President and CEO

We keep hearing all this talk about “cloud computing”.  “We’re on the Cloud”, “You can share that file through the Cloud”, and so forth.  It seems to be the latest buzzword among the techie and wanna-be techie crowds. It’s the new Web 2.0!  But is it really new?  Before we can answer that, we need to look at the definition of cloud computing…

The term “Cloud computing” comes from the cloud-shaped symbol that is typically used as an abstraction for complex infrastructure which IT professionals have been using for years. Like clouds of the meteorological variety, data clouds are blobs of condensation – only instead of water droplets, the blobs are a condensation of ones and zeros.  The Internet is perhaps the best known cloud of all. The Internet, in its simplest form is a collection of remotely hosted servers that you could connect to for any number of reasons. When you save a photo to Facebook, you are uploading that photo to a remote server that is managed by Facebook in any one of their data centers throughout the world.   We interact with these clouds every day, according to Chris Palermo, President and CEO of  Global Communications Networks.  “You and I have been using it for years,” Palermo said in a recent interview with Joe and Kristy on The Competitive Edge™.  “Social media is the cloud – Facebook or iTunes – everything.  You host your media on somebody else’s site.”  Pretty simple explanation.  But let’s take it one step further:  You and your group (a company, an organization, or a fan club) are the “users” and you see the front end of the cloud computing system.  Through your interface (software, browser, etc.) you access what you need at the back end of the system – the “cloud”.  This type of data interaction offers the convenience of someone else handling the hardware, such as the Server itself, and the software, such as Google Apps at an affordable cost.

So what makes GCN such a standout in a veritable sea of telecommunications and cloud computing specialists?  “You have to change with the market,” Palermo explains.  “One of the things I’ve learned is that you have to be a representative for all carrier types.  We look for the right solutions and present, maybe four different proposals.  After the customer has made their decision, our project management will manage it, and then we will put together a life cycle management team to support them.”  This, combined with their VOIP, data connectivity and co-location services (data replication and recovery in the event of a disaster), got GCN inducted into Inc. Magazine’s list of 5000 Fastest Growing Corporations two years in a row.  According to Chris, “We’re looking to be in there for our third year in a row.” Regardless, Chris Palermo and his company can rest assured that the forecast for cloud computing is very favorable.
