This has the potential to open up previously unseen opportunities and partnerships for the entire ecosystem. it’s a conversation that those involved in usage based insurance cannot really afford to be out of the loop on.” He continued “Insurance Telematics USA 2014 provides the only place where the entire value chain gathers under one roof to discuss and kick-start relationships as the industry continues to evolve.”
