Fleets have just days left to book up for next week’s ICFM Masterclass focusing on ‘big data’ and its effects on the long-established fleet management model. Free to attend, ICFM’s third Masterclass takes place on Tuesday 3 October from 10am to noon at the NEC, Birmingham and will highlight how technology is reinventing the way both fleets and the whole arena of corporate travel is being strategically managed.
Mitsubishi has launched a scrappage scheme, offering a saving of up to £4,000 on models including the Outlander PHEV. Announced following the launch of a raft of scrappage schemes in the UK, the deal enables drivers to trade in Euro 1-4 vehicles registered before January 2010 and receive an allowance of £4,000 towards the Outlander PHEV alongside the existing £2,500 plug-in car grant (PiCG).
Aston Barclay has adopted new GardX SpinCar imaging technology, which it says should dramatically increase online bids and sales. The product gives buyers a 360-degree view of the used car’s exterior and interior with a zoom facility, enabling them to inspect cars closer online and aiding with bidding decisions. Already live at Westbury and Donington Park on all fleet and dealer inspections, SpinCar will eventually replace Aston Barclay’s current imaging software across its five-branch network.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
