Over 75% of insurers haven’t launched a UBI product. It’s not a question of if but of when, and with whom.
(PRWEB) April 29, 2014
With nearly all of the nation’s insurance carriers represented in the audience and on stage (C-level officials from RSA Group, Desjardins and The Cooperators are involved in presentations and panel sessions), the 2-day Insurance Telematics Canada conference (May 28-29) will allow telematics service providers such as iMetrik, Octo and IMS; technology consultants such as IBM, Towers Watson and CGI; and insurance regulators such as Financial Services Commission of Ontario and the Alberta Treasury Board and Finance to gain a priceless insight into how insurance carriers seek to utilise the strategic benefits that UBI can deliver. A sample of the delegates can be found here - http://www.telematicsupdate.com/insurance-telematics-canada/attendees.php.
Looking through the list of 150 UBI stakeholders already confirmed, Project Director, Jack Palmer commented, “This event seems to have come at exactly the right time for insurers and telematics service providers (TSPs) in Canada. Over the last year, there has been a steady flow of partnership announcements and this is just the beginning. There is a huge amount of ground left to compete for. Over 75% of insurers haven’t launched a UBI product. It’s not a question of if but of when, and with whom. TSPs and consultancies will need to move fast to secure new business”.
With interest in UBI growing quickly there has been no better time to discuss how the auto-insurance ecosystem comes together with telematics service providers to produce the insurance products that consumers want. For the first time, Canadian-specific trends and challenges surrounding consumer uptake, privacy concerns and broker outreach will be addressed and delegates will have the chance to meet other influential parts of the value chain such as C-level execs from mobile network operators, data aggregators and of course, regulators.
