Telematics Update - February 16, 2011

The use of tech­nol­o­gy to mea­sure a driver’s behav­ior behind the steer­ing wheel is being used by insur­ance com­pa­nies in the fleet indus­try to not only mea­sure usage and harsh dri­ving but also to mea­sure safe­ty and dri­ver behav­ior. This per­mits insur­ance com­pa­nies to bet­ter man­age risk. Insur­ance com­pa­nies are embrac­ing a proac­tive approach in part­ner­ing with telem­at­ics com­pa­nies and offer these ser­vices to their fleet cus­tomers.
