Why Shift to Commercial Insurance Telematics?

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, combined ratios were 101.8%¹ in 2020 with an estimated 5 year outlook of 101.5%². This has resulted in global insurance premiums increasing year over year to 11%³ as of Q1 2022. As a result, 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.
