What we do

Our Services

The Telematic UBI SaaS Platform

Shrinking margins, increased churn, and the constant threat of disruption. Now more than ever, staying at parity with the competition is essential. We are here to help.

UBI made easy

UBI program implementations are typically very time and resource intensive. Our SaaS solution fast forwards your implementation -- you can have a UBI program up and running in weeks, not years.

Smartphone based

Traditional hardware based telematic offerings suffer from high cost and high provisioning overhead. Our smartphone based solution is much more cost efficient, and can offer insights a dongle can't.

Real time streaming analytics and event identification

All driving data is processed in real time in the cloud, reducing smartphone battery drain. This centralized hub and spoke architecture also ensures algorithmic and functional consistency across all of your insureds.

Branded driver dashboard app

Our stylish native dashboard app offers daily, weekly, and monthly metrics, and scores the individual relative to all your insureds -- a more subtle form of gamification.

Data access API

Full raw data sets, events, and analytics - all available via the Telematic API.

Clustered, scalable and highly performant

Using proven big data technologies, the Telematic platform can easily land and process enormous amounts of streaming data, all in real time.

Custom analytics available on request

Implementing your custom algorithms is a breeze due to the highly configurable design of the Telematic platform.

Added context via 3rd party data sources (coming soon)

Data without context is only part of the picture. Weather, speed limits, and traffic flow can provide added insight into your insureds driving behavior.

Surprise and delight

This is your new channel for meaningful engagement. Time and location based incentives foster loyalty and reinforce your brand. Your UBI program can be so much more than a pricing tool -- ask us how!
