A Former Uber "Data Guy" Joins KeepTruckin, Eyes Efficiencies In Fleet Management

A Former Uber "Data Guy" Joins KeepTruckin, Eyes Efficiencies In Fleet Management. If you are building a technology-based company, among the most important hires are the "data guys." They are the ones that drive product development, and they are the ones can take the millions of data points available and turn them into useful solutions. If you can hire someone who was integral in helping Uber build out its ride-sharing model, that is a coup. KeepTruckin, which has grown from a small startup to a powerful fleet management solutions provider with more than 800 employees across six offices, recently nabbed the talents of Jairam Ranganathan, formerly Uber's senior director of product. Noting that simply dropping prices is not the solution in every mode, Ranganathan said the way Uber solved this problem – through data – is how trucking can attack its problems to become more efficient and profitable.
