Telematics Update: There’s no Hiding from Insurance Telematics

During research for the Insurance Telematics Report 2013 Edition, Telematics Update conducted an industry wide survey of 1300 senior-level insurance and telematics executives to get their expert insight into winning insurance telematics business models. Executives were asked to predict the success of models such as Pay How You Drive (PHYD), Manage How Your Drive (MHYD) and Pay As You Drive (PAYD) to enable insurers and telematics companies to make strategic investment decisions when forming their strategies to access this burgeoning market in 2013 and beyond.

Ruthana Foulkes, Insurance Telematics Project Director, Telematics Update stresses the importance of formulating an insurance telematics strategy now, whether insurer or telematics company, in order to become a key player in this space. “Telematics is about to drastically alter the insurance market. We need to establish which business models, whether that be PHYD or PAYD, will generate the biggest ROI for insurers and the rest of the ecosystem can align their strategies accordingly. With players like Zurich, Wunelli and Progressive leading the way, it’s only a matter of time before others jump on board and make the most of this new opportunity for partnerships and revenue streams”.
