Driveway Software to Join Roll Call of Usage-Based Insurance Experts Examining Device Choice at Insurance Telematics USA 2014 Conference

Share Article

Driveway Software, the smartphone app provider for usage based insurance (UBI), will present the results of their Driveway Data Challenge, a case study comparing smartphone UBI with OBD UBI at this year’s Insurance Telematics USA 2014 Conference (3-4 September, Chicago, IL). The comparison promises to dispel UBI data quality myths.

Telematics update:

This session will be a real eye-opener for anyone wishing to get more information on this contentious issue of device data quality.

This year’s Insurance Telematics USA Conference and Exhibition has a distinguished list of speakers sharing their insights with more than 800 attendees. Among these speakers is Jake Diner, CEO of Driveway Software, a smartphone-deployed, cloud-based technology that provides insurers with comprehensive insured driving data for better pricing intelligence – maximizing the opportunity for lower loss ratios and higher profits. While the technology sets new UBI standards, it is affordability, scalability and ease of rollout that are the true differentiators.

Driveway will be hosting a workshop titled “Is using an OBD Device the Gold Standard for Usage Based Insurance?” at the conference. To answer this question, Driveway will reveal detailed results from their Driveway Data Challenge, in which the driving of three drivers was monitored for three weeks by both a smartphone app and an OBD device.

According to Harriet Molyneaux, Project Director, Telematics Update, “The usage-based insurance device debate appears to have moved on from ‘if’ the smartphone will be utilized, to ‘when’ it will be incorporated into multiple UBI programs, making it a serious contender in most companies’ insurance strategies.” She continued, “This session will be a real eye-opener for anyone wishing to get more information on this contentious issue of device data quality.”

Additionally, Driveway will be exhibiting at booth #21 at Insurance Telematics USA 2014. Insurance professionals are invited to stop by, meet the Driveway team, and register to receive an emailed copy of the complete Driveway Data Challenge report. “We are thrilled to be part of the Telematics USA conference and the usage based insurance movement. As an industry, we are on the brink of auto insurance market disruption. We welcome the opportunity to help insurers quickly and cost-effectively enter the UBI market,” says Diner.

Further sessions led by hand-picked experts such as Progressive, US Dept. of Transport, Liberty Mutual, Driveway, California Casualty Management Company, Ford, Zurich, IBM and Towers Watson will cover regulation of new technology, next-gen cognitive UBI models, the consumer and disruptive new entrants to market such as Google.
