ALD is piloting a new digital parking app that could become part of its ‘My ALD’ global fleet app if trials in Austria prove successful. Developed in collaboration with Austrian startup Parkbob – which won ALD Automotive’s ALD Startup Challenge last June for its parking app solution proposal – the app finds available parking spaces in Vienna, Graz, Salzburg, Innsbruck and Linz and provides automatic alerts if drivers park in an invalid parking space to help avoid parking fines.
ACFO has elected Julie Summerell as its first regional chairman following its shift to operating under a single region. The fleet decision makers’ organisation announced this autumn that it was introducing the new structure from 1 January 2018 alongside a focus on webinars instead of its twice-a-year regional meetings due to dwindling attendance. The move marks the biggest shake-up of the organisation since it was founded more than 40 years ago.
ACFO has announced the winners of its annual awards with Skoda and Licence Bureau both making it onto the winners’ rostrum for the first time. Held last night (16 November) at the St John’s Hotel, Solihull, the event saw the Skoda Superb named as the joint winner of the Fleet Car of the Year title alongside the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, as voted for by members. The Fleet Service Company of the Year award also went to joint winners, with the AA and Licence Bureau sharing the top spot.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
