Commercial lines insurers are quickly adopting insurance telematics in order to fully realize the benefits telematics offers and restore profitability over more traditional models that have been delivering poor underwriting results. Due to adverse loss frequency and severity trends, including those caused by distracted driving, combined ratios for commercial insurers have risen to over 100%. In fact, the commercial auto underwriting losses grew from $744.8 million to slightly over $2.9 billion in 2016 (a 4x increase). In order for insurers to stay profitable, steep rates increases have become inevitable, much to the dissatisfaction of their fleet customers. In turn, in order to afford commercial premiums, fleets are playing with the numbers, such as insuring with larger deductibles and distributing risk and cost across a wider safety net to achieve a better cost.
IMS Commercial Usage-Based Insurance (CUBI) provides commercial lines insurers with the industry’s most comprehensive solution satisfying the needs of the insurer, fleet manager, and fleet driver alike. Commercial insurers finally have the proper tools to engage, retain, and assess fleet risk for improved pricing and rating and to help ensure a profitable book of business. Fleet managers have the ability to improve fleet driver behavior and realize cost savings at every stop along the way – all while paying the commercial premiums most accurately associated with their fleet risk. In turn, fleet drivers get regular real-time feedback and insights to continuously improve driving behavior and, appraise, and reward performance and safety.
IMS CUBI provides insurers with the ability to improve profits by encouraging safe and distraction-free driving behaviors. Studies conducted in the United States show a 20% reduction in fleet accidents when telematics monitoring is in place. In Europe, this number climbs to 28%!
