ALLIANZ DRIVES FLEET SAFETY WITH TELEMATICS PARTNERSHIP

Press Release   •   Jun 05, 2015 09:00 BST

Allianz Commercial has joined forces with fleet incident management provider FMG, to provide Commercial Fleet and Motor Trade customers with the capability to improve driver safety and fleet efficiency.

The partnership will allow Allianz’s Fleet and Motor Trade policyholders to access FMG’s market leading telematics software service, Ingenium Dynamics, at a discounted rate. Ingenium Dynamics aims to improve driver behaviour by making it easier to identify, manage and reduce risk.

The professionally installed telematics devices collect key driving data and translate it into a simple ‘dashboard’ to allow drivers and managers to monitor driver and fleet performance. One of the key features of the system is the ability to allow comparisons between users via a league table highlighting high risk driving behaviour within a fleet. Other features of the Allianz and Ingenium Dynamics portal include:

  • Safety dashboard and driver behaviour reports
  • Live vehicle location and route planning
  • Accurate mileage calculations
  • Incident notification and analysis
  • MPG and CO2 data
  • Online driver training modules
  • Vehicle fault alerts

FMG will offer a fully supported and interactive service to clients alongside Allianz and brokers to maximise the benefits of the Ingenium Dynamics system in reducing accidents, lowering  insurance premiums, optimising fleet and route usage as well as increase fuel efficiency and savings.

Jonathan Dye, Head of Motor insurance, Allianz Commercial commented: “Running a safe and cost-effective fleet is crucial to maintaining a profitable business, which is why more and more companies are investing in telematics to help manage their fleets.Our partnership with FMG demonstrates our commitment to digitalisation and using new technologies to help our fleet policyholders improve driver safety and reduce their operating costs.”

He continued: “FMG’s Ingenium Dynamics has a proven track record of reducing incident claims and I have no doubt that this partnership will benefit our many fleet customers by creating a safer workforce and reducing costs for their business.”

Harvey Stead, Commercial Director at FMG said “Securing this partnership with Allianz is another significant achievement for FMG. There is a strong appetite for improving driver behaviour as more companies are being judged on how they help their drivers to achieve better, safer driving practices. To ensure we deliver true value and sustainable benefits to Allianz’s fleet policyholders we’ll provide a fully supported service to fleet managers and individual drivers throughout the lifetime of the contract. The benefits of this hardly need stressing, but fewer incidents, together with improved driver engagement, make for a safer workforce and less cost to the business.”

The launch of Allianz’s partnership with FMG comes off the back of the release of its whitepaper, ‘The Future of Mobility – Changes in vehicle technology’. The whitepaper explores how mobility is likely to evolve over the next couple of decades and what the subsequent improvements to vehicle safety are likely to mean for the insurance industry.
