LAUNCHED: Fleet insurance costs battled

A new company aimed at helping fleet operators mitigate financial and operational risks has been launched.

Intelligent Telematics will combine tracking and integrated camera technology to capture footage of incidents along with supporting vehicle data.

This will help provide proof of what really happened in a collision, and protect against avoidable insurance costs.

In addition, a dedicated consultancy service will work closely with customers to provide insurance analysis, identify areas of risk and help combat cost pressures.

Sam Footer, Head of International Business and Strategic Development at Intelligent Telematics, said: “We are bringing together a global team of industry experts from the telematics, camera and insurance industries to deliver an unrivalled service to customers.

“As a result, vehicle operators will now be able to achieve significant benefits by reducing and simplifying the claims experience; better managing high-risk driver behaviour; and improving fleet safety and efficiency.”

Intelligent Telematics’ solution will allow driving incidents and exceptions to be recorded and communicated using a forward-facing camera fitted in the vehicle and integrated with a tracking system.

The camera provides continuous recording from ignition with a wide-angle pillar-to-pillar view and is combined with three-axis g-force measurement and location and speed data capture.
