Sapiens International Corporation, (Holon, Israel), a global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, has partnered with GreenRoad Technologies, a provider of advanced and predictive driving risk analysis for the automotive industry. The partnership aims to provide automotive insurance carriers with a new level of risk assessment data about their drivers on a dynamic basis, making it possible for them to provide more competitive, personalized driver insurance premiums, customer-centric services and proactive risk-prevention programs, according to a Sapiens statement.
GreenRoad Technologies’ mobile app-based solution provides analysis of driver behavior, detecting and ranking more than 150 different complex driving maneuvers. Its high level of assessment is designed to empower drivers to improve their own behavior while enabling insurers to make smart, data-driven policy decisions and to provide policy holders with the personalized service they demand, according to the Sapiens statement. Armed with this data, insurers will be able to offer enhanced services such as PHYD (Pay How You Drive) and MHYD (Manage How You Drive) products, confidently providing discounted premiums and differentiated risk levels based on accurate, individualized criteria, the vendor sasy
Enhancing the Services Insurers Can Offer
“With Tesla and Amazon entering the car insurance market, now is the time for existing insurers to embrace innovation and harness the latest digital and AI-based technology to drastically enhance the services they provide,” comments Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens President and CEO. “Sapiens is thrilled to partner with GreenRoad Technologies. There is a natural synergy between Sapiens expertise in equipping the insurance industry with the latest software, and GreenRoad’s cutting-edge solutions. Through our combined efforts we seek to enhance the services and products insurers operating in the automotive industry are able to provide, while simultaneously boosting driver safety.”
GreenRoad’s technology utilizes real-time coaching, gamification and scoring mechanisms through an easy-to-use mobile app to increase client engagement and maximize driver safety. Sapiens asserts that use of GreenRoad’s platform leads to dramatic improvements in driver safety and a significant reduction of fleet risk and expenses with up to 50 percent reduction in preventable collisions and up to 80 percent reduction in accident related costs. The solution also prompts more efficient driving styles, resulting in a reduction in fuel consumption and carbon emissions, the vendor says.
“In an increasingly competitive insurance landscape, we are excited to partner with Sapiens to bring disruptive innovation to the market, providing insurers with the means to profitably personalize their offerings and to take a proactive approach to risk reduction,” comments, David Ripstein, CEO, GreenRoad. “The data collected by our joint offering will support dynamic premiums for drivers, positioning insurers ideally to compete and retain their customers. Moreover, the ease of onboarding our platform with Sapiens technology will go a long way toward enabling the digital transformation of the automotive insurance field—a revolution that is needed today more than ever. We look forward to working with Sapiens to dramatically enhance the insurance sector, saving lives and reducing expenses as we change driver behavior.”
