Frost & Sullivan recently researched the telematics usage-based insurance industry and, based on its analysis results, recognizes Targa Telematics (Targa) with the 2022 Europe Enabling Technology Leadership Award. The company uniquely leverages its technology and human expertise to meet customers’ needs. Targa develops high-tech solutions and responds to the market’s latest trends with flexible insurance services, enabling new business models. It is the most significant player in usage-based insurance telematics and a partner of the biggest auto insurance companies in the country, Targa’s product portfolio includes:
• Claims management solution fraud recognition, first notice of loss, and reconstruction of accidents;
• Driver profiling risk management, personalized offers, and customer segmentation;
• Driver safety and vehicle security theft incidence reduction, stolen vehicle recovery, and driver support;

Targa Telematics created an automotive-specific Internet of Things (IoT) platform and advanced IoT devices that collect and transmit telematic data from vehicles. The company’s open mobility platform processes the collected data to enable new mobility services and products. The platform is hardware and data stream agnostic, allowing it to manage information from original equipment manufacturers and third-party devices. Targa’s hardware solution considers the complexity needed to interface with over 800 vehicle models and allows standardized data access.
Manish Menon, a Frost & Sullivan program manager, observed,“Targa provides customers with more accurate and reliable risk profiles to reduce accidents, effective systems to combat fraud, and detailed, automated, and timely accident reconstructions for claims management. Insurers also assess the risk for new mobility services such as car-sharing.”
Targa’s data analytics allow a more accurate risk assessment of each event and profile for insurance companies, enabling profile-based rates and new services to engage, reward, and consequently retain customers, reduce compensation costs, and prevent fraud. Furthermore, it can allow more suitable policies and negotiate more agreeable terms, reducing insurance premium costs for companies with vehicle insurance. The company’s digital tools support operated services, such as sanctification, logistics, installations, testing devices, and field assistance. Its comprehensive portfolio, highly skilled professionals, and software tools minimize the operational impact on the customer.
