“COUNTRY prides itself on helping people when accidents happen, but our partnership with Cambridge Mobile Technology will result in clients that will avoid tragedies all together,” comments Chad Mirock, VP, Personal Lines, COUNTRY Financial. “Roads are safer, our clients benefit, and we should strengthen our client relationship through the DriverIQ App.”

The DriverIQ app, is now available to COUNTRY Financial’s policyholders in Colorado and Minnesota, with more states pending in the future, according to a CMT statement. The app is built using CMT’s DriveWell platform, which uses mobile sensing and statistics to measure and score driving quality, is designed to help drivers become safer drivers via engaging incentives rooted in behavioral science and uses machine learning to reconstruct crashes. The CRM products aim to enable insurers to price risk more accurately, lower loss ratios, automate claims processing, and offer emergency roadside assistance.

The DriverIQ app provides COUNTRY Financial with a flexible way to incorporate multiple value propositions for policyholders including rewards and discounts depending on geography, according to the vendor. The DriverIQ app provides feedback to drivers after every trip, highlighting areas of risk enabling users to reduce their risk of accidents while getting more value from their insurance purchase.
