Vehicle Data Exchange

Powering IMS DriveSync’s Award-Winning Data Source Agnostic Capability

Insurance carriers around the world are seeking further cost effective ways to gain insight about existing and prospective policyholders. Both personal lines and commercial lines providers are looking for data solutions to obtain vehicle and driving data and insight, such as receiving vehicle mileage and garaging locations, and are open to new ways of accessing this data – whether from popular smartphone-based solutions, aftermarket hardware-based data collection options or direct from newer telematics-embedded vehicles.

At the same time, mobility providers are grappling with the cost and complexity of accessing data from large fleets with a diverse mixture of brands, models and telemetry technologies. As a result, too much time and cost is being spent on building bespoke data access partnerships, distracting operators and slowing down advancements in revenue-driving customer experiences and services, as well inhibiting additional investments in operational cost reduction and efficiency benefits. 

Additionally, governments are envisioning a future with simple access to connected and automated vehicles to fuel road usage charging and smart city initiatives, but lack a practical and cost-effective means to reach this future state. 

There has to be a way for insurance carriers, mobility providers and government customers to access the data requirements to fuel their complete program and vehicle access needs. And without requiring you to organize your own data partnerships and multiple vendor relationships.
