Navman Wireless partnership could cut insurance premiums
The vehicle tracking specialist says it believes the partnership reflects an increasing trend for insurers to take the technology into account when assessing risk.
‘Vehicle tracking gives companies total visibility of their entire fleet,’ said Tony Neill, executive vice president of Navman Wireless.
‘Being able to monitor driver behaviour at the touch of a button gives users an unrivalled level of control of their mobile workforce and more insurers are starting to recognise this.’
The new partnership will see One Business, a Brightside Group company, encourage its customers to consider Navman Wireless technology – promising to look favourably on those who install its vehicle tracking system in their fleet vehicles.
The tracking provider will in turn offer One Business's customers a significant reduction on its tracking package. Navman Wireless will also recommend One Business to its own client base as a broker prepared to factor the technology into quotes.
‘Vehicle tracking technology – particularly that from Navman Wireless – has established a reputation as an effective risk management tool,’ said Doug Kelley, head of affinity partnerships at Brightside Group.
‘As a consequence, we're delighted to have joined forces with the company and we'll be granting Navman Wireless users special consideration when quoting on their fleet insurance.’
The agreement is the latest to emerge from Navman Wireless's affinity scheme providing customers with preferential treatment from other business suppliers and follows the recently announced partnership with The Fuel Card Company, which Navman Wireless says has succeeded in providing companies with a better deal on both fuel costs and vehicle tracking.
