Carlinville, IL, November 11, 2022 – Karmak, a leader in Business Management Solutions for the commercial transportation industry, recently held their 51st Karmak Conference and Tradeshow at Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, MO. The event marked Karmak’s 40th anniversary where more than 600 attended, making it the biggest conference in Karmak history. Karmak also celebrated their first year as a 100% Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) company.

The announcement of Karmak’s new direction with mobile applications was the highlight of the event. Karmak’s mobile service app will be launched early in 2023 and will serve as the platform on which future Fusion integrations will be built upon. With the mobile service app, Fusion users can easily manage service drive operations using their mobile phones or tablets creating efficiencies for employees which provides a better customer experience.

Transportation leaders from across North America came together to network and discuss strategies for driving more effective and efficient business transactions. Attendees also gained exclusive access to live vendor demos, along with leadership and OEM breakout groups.

“The Conference was record-breaking on all counts. Not only did we have twice the number of attendees compared to last year’s event, but we had more vendors, demos, and breakout sessions than ever before.” says Jim Allen, CEO at Karmak. “The energy was incredible.”

“Giving a peek behind the curtain, and allowing our customers to see what we have in the works is an exciting part of the conference, but there’s also a collaborative aspect. We set up sessions to collect real time feedback from our customers that we use to improve our software products,” Jim adds. “It’s all about joining together to drive our industry forward.“

Heavy duty and commercial transportation leaders look forward to this event every fall and it’s something that Karmak spends all year planning. According to Allen, “Karmak Conference 2023 is already in the works.”
