Volvo, IBM, Verizon and Strategy Analytics discuss the role of the connected car at Insurnace Telematics Europe 2014

The global telematics market is being forced to adapt to the growth in popularity of smartphone applications replacing black box telematics concepts. This can be seen as representative of the increasingly important and integrated role the connected car in having in insurance and indeed automotive transport. The intersection of connect car initiatives, such as location based sales, social networking and gamification for increased consumer interaction are all things that OEMs and insurers alike are having to keep a watchful eye on. These will be highly dependent on a fast and reliable 4G network, bringing telecoms providers quickly into the picture, something that will be a key discussion topic at the discussions on the 6-7 May.

David Green, market development director at Volvo states, “This is an exciting time in the car industry because it feels as though we are on the verge of big change.  The internet, connectivity and telemetry are by no means new phenomena; however they, or perhaps we, appear to be reaching the right level of combined maturity to create a real opportunity for innovation.  For this reason, events like Telematics Update’s Insurance Telematics Conference are important because it is the combination of data and information from existing business models which is fuelling the creation of new ones in the internet of things.”

David Green, market development director at Volvo will discuss, alongside Roger Lanctot, Director -Strategy Analytics, Stephen Mills, Business Analytics Strategy Lead for Europe – IBM and Keith Kammer, SVP – Verizon, the role of the connected car in insurance telematics applications at Telematics Update’s Insurance Telematics Europe Conference and Exhibition 2014 (6-7 May, Novotel Hotel West, London).
