Allianz France (a subsidiary of Allianz, Munich) has chosen TomTom’s (Amsterdam) smart phone-based technology for the Paris-based insurer’s new telematics offering, Allianz Conduite Connectée. The Allianz offering helps French consumers to assess their driving by providing actionable insights via a smartphone app that also lets policy holders easily request roadside assistance, according to a TomTom statement.
“As a world leader we are at the forefront of innovation, and our aim was to bring new services to our clients that help them to be safe on the road,” comments Delphine Asseraf, Head of Digital, Allianz France. “We have partnered with TomTom Telematics because it offers a market-leading technology platform with a proven track record for the highest standards of reliability and service.” said Delphine Asseraf, Head of Digital, Allianz France.”
TomTom’s telematics platform processes a range of vehicle and driving performance data for the app, recorded by the TomTom LINK 100 in the vehicle, according to the vendor. Allianz France policy holders can self-install the LINK 100 device as it plugs directly into the vehicle’s diagnostics port of their car. Users benefit from feedback on mileage, acceleration, braking and cornering. The system automatically alerts France’s Mondial Assistance emergency services in the event of a vehicle crash.
