(PRWEB UK) 7 May 2013
HIMEX, the shortest, fastest, most complete route to usage based insurance, announces the launch of its UBI 3D™ product for insurance companies, which it will be premiering at Insurance Telematics Europe 2013 today.
“Our aim is to bring something truly transformational to the behaviour-based and usage-based insurance markets,” commented Hassan Sadiq, Chairman and CEO. “HIMEX UBI 3D allows insurance carriers to raise the stakes in terms of consumer engagement, by providing a personalised, immersive online experience designed to encourage safer driving and therefore drive down claims-related costs.”
Focusing on the connected vehicle, HIMEX UBI 3D combines usage or behaviour based insurance with a unique online and mobile social experience that connects drivers seamlessly and continuously to their insurance carriers, as well as to friends, family and those businesses and services most important to them. HIMEX’s expertise in mobile application design and development enables insurers to customise new products and services for the connected driver.
Uniquely, HIMEX can provide insurance companies and their customers access to a fully rendered 3D world that allows them to see their journeys virtually and observe their own driving performance each day. With a patent pending gaming component from HIMEX, drivers can compete for top leader board status for safe driving performance, earn discounts at their favourite businesses and track changes in their driving score. Insurers have the benefit of being able to access this valuable data for rating and actuarial purposes.
“Launching a UBI product successfully requires flawless integration with a carrier’s systems, expert management of data and devices, and superior policyholder support. We enable insurance carriers to configure usage based insurance products for their brands and launch UBI 3D programs within 120 days,” said Bob Mathe, President. “Our strong background in game development, telematics and insurance brings the expertise companies need to achieve the immediate benefits of usage based insurance.”
In order to fulfill its vision, Arizona-based HIMEX acquired The Evogi Group in 2012. In the United States, the company has relationships with many leading insurance companies, and a track record of successful development and implementation of its UBI 3D product with a number of top 20 US insurers. HIMEX has the capabilities to offer a combination of gamification-enabled usage based insurance and smart fleet management solutions worldwide.
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 carriers to create fun, engaging customer experiences that change driving behaviour, attract new customers, and increase retention.
The HIMEX team brings extensive experience with development and installation of large-scale enterprise insurance technology to the largest insurance markets in the world, including the United States, Japan, Germany, UK, France, Spain, India and South Africa. On the gamification front, the team has implemented successful games launches in the US, Japan, Europe and India on various platforms: PS3, XBOX, iOS, Android and Facebook.
Founded in 2010, HIMEX is a privately held company, with headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ and offices in London.
