We predict that the next three years will bring increased consumer demand across Europe for a product that customises rates based on driver behaviour and brings a new level of information to consumers on a real-time basis," said Mathe.
(PRWEB UK) 8 May 2013
Bob Mathe, President of HIMEX, the shortest, fastest, most complete route to the benefits of usage based insurance and smart fleet management, will deliver a Keynote Address at today’s opening session of Insurance Telematics Europe 2013, organised by Telematics Update.
Mathe will share his view of the technology and consumer trends driving powerful changes in the products and services demanded by the constantly connected consumer. He will also present examples of emerging technology that can exploit the synergy among ubiquitous phones, connected cars and tech-savvy consumers. Insurance carrier executives and fleet managers who embrace these emerging technologies will benefit from increased connections with their drivers and the opportunity to deliver personalised products and services.
"While implementation of usage based insurance programs is on a fast-track in the US, acceptance has been slower in the UK. We predict that the next three years will bring increased consumer demand across Europe for a product that customises rates based on driver behaviour and brings a new level of information to consumers on a real-time basis," said Mathe. "And, as drivers change their behaviour for insurance purposes, we expect fewer accidents and safer travel for all."
In his speech, Mathe will demonstrate how frequent, high value contact and content provided by technology and telematics can generate greater trust in a brand or product, create a sense of reliance upon the information, and increase customer loyalty. He will also provide insight to how HIMEX integrates its patent pending game-based design and algorithms with a 3D Virtual World platform to change driving behaviour.
"We are particularly excited about adding gamification to the HIMEX UBI 3D™ product," noted Mathe. “It significantly changes the game for usage based insurance.”
HIMEX offers the shortest, fastest and most complete route to the immediate benefits of usage based insurance and smart fleet management. Leveraging its patent pending systems, HIMEX uses a game-based virtual world to enable insurance carriers to create fun, engaging customer experiences that change driving behaviour attract new customers, and increase retention.
Founded in 2010, HIMEX Limited is a privately held company, with offices in London and Scottsdale, AZ. HIMEX acquired The Evogi Group in 2012 , allowing the combined operation to offer gamification enabled usage based insurance and smart fleet management solutions worldwide.
