Octo Telematics North America, the North American leader in insurance telematics, was awarded the “Best Insurance Telematics Product or Service Launch” at the 2014 Telematics Update Awards Ceremony on June 3rd at the Hyatt Place Detroit in Novi, MI.
In just over two years, Octo Telematics North America has been selected to launch UBI products with some of the largest P/C insurers in both the United States and Canada.

“This award recognizes the service we provide to our insurance partners as they launch full-scale production telematics products and to the reliability and security of Octo’s platform,” said Nino Tarantino, CEO, Octo Telematics North America. “None of this would have been possible without the support of our dedicated teams in Boston, San Diego, Montreal and Rome. This is not just an award for Octo Telematics North America, this is an award for all Octo teams around the world.”
