Atlanta, GA, United States, 2013/09/04 - LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced the launch of LexisNexis® Telematics Mobile, a white-label mobile application (app) for smartphones to capture and transmit information about driving data - LexisNexis.com.
LexisNexis Telematics Mobile helps address cost barriers created by high in-car telematics device costs.
“Today’s telematics solutions have high costs with unknown returns that prevent carriers from creating forward-thinking telematics programs that can position their businesses for the long term,” said Ash Hassib, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Auto Insurance, LexisNexis. “LexisNexis Telematics Mobile provides a cost-effective, flexible telematics solution that can help get to market quickly and increase return on investment.”
LexisNexis Telematics Mobile is an end-to-end telematics solution that includes data collection, storage, processing, as well as dashboard presentation, information disclosure and customer service. The solution provides driver-specific behavior data, not just vehicle data, providing more granular information than what is available through an OBDII-only solution. Additional benefits include:
• Up to 70 percent less than the cost of traditional OBDII solutions;
• Data on both individual driver behavior and vehicle usage;
• Limited use of the smartphone battery and data plan;
• Compatibility with both Android and Apple mobile devices, which are already in 81 percent of U.S. households*;
• Ability to be integrated with existing app suites for a seamless customer experience.
“70% of insurers are in some phase of creating a UBI program but list high cost as their biggest challenge,” said Mark Breading, Partner, Strategy Meets Action. “The smartphone provides insurers with a new option to address that challenge while opening the door to new opportunities at the same time.”
