Telematics Update: The great battle of UBI: are OEM’s taking the lead?

Posted by Hayden [1] on Apr 8, 2014

As the great battle over UBI devices continues, embedded OEM solutions are expected to take the lead in a two to five year timeframe, overtaking smartphones (Telematics Update survey).

This will be a game changer for the insurance ecosystem, and as with every new business model and technology, industry players must have a concrete vision of how the model works and how best to exploit it. During research for the Insurance Telematics Report 2014 Edition [2], Telematics Update conducted an industry wide survey of 300+ senior-level insurance and telematics execs, and interviewed 30+ industry pioneers such as Ford, Vodafone, Wunelli and A.T. Kearney, to get their expert insight on which changes have influenced the thinking of  the insurance industry when it comes to business models and the potential benefits of UBI for both insurers and the insured.

Simon Ralph, CEO at Telematicus has reviewed this newly released report: ”The 2014 Insurance Telematics Report provides good insight into the evolving world of insurance telematics, taking the discussion beyond the relative merits of telematics devices and  technology to the different insurance propositions and the importance of data analytics”.
