- individual discounts “how and when you drive”-based (both historical and for the last trip);
- cheaper insurance premium, especially for young drivers and low-mileage drivers;
- insurance premium is paid within a year after each trip, not prepaid for the next year;
- user can choose which trips (or days) to insure – all or particular;
- car while not moving (>95% of time) is always insured by low tariffs (monthly paid, for example);
- special discounts while driving in slow traffic (50% and more from base tariff, when < 10km/h); - after certain trip minutes the system switches to daily tariff and stops additional charges that day; - extra benefits for families with multiple cars, for those sharing cars with friends, etc.; - economic incentive for safe driving (to get bigger discount on each trip, by safe driving); - faster accident assistance and support; - rewards for loyalty. The solution provides the following benefits to insurance companies: - increasing customers' loyalty by individual pricing, based on individual vehicle usage style; - attracting new customers by cheaper insurance premium and flexible payment schedule; - advanced risk management tools: insurance company can segment clients with high precision; - built-in analytics allow to analyze accidents fast, remotely and in deep details; - efficient fraud prevention; - reduction of claim handling costs; - portfolio improvement: insurance company can filter “good” clients and repel “bad” ones; - better communication with customers resulting in increased customer satisfaction, retention and loyalty; - better insight and understanding of customer behavior. The platform includes the following elements: - weather, mapping and traffic services; - data receiving and archiving subsystems; - scoring subsystem; - mobile application server and client mobile applications for iOS and Android; - statistical and payment services; - telematic web-portal for insurer with accident analysis, client management and financial reporting.
