Each part of the ecosystem will have a different perspective on this and this event will be only place to hear each side of the argument.

As insurers endeavor in the field of telematics they increase the data that they are working with. This can potentially be costly with regard to data transfer, management and storage costs. The clearing house approach could potentially level the market and allow for insurers to work with a number of telematics service providers whilst reducing costs.

Andrew Pym, TU-Automotive’s lead UBI researcher noted, ‘This is a highly interesting debate. We will have automakers such as Ford discussing this as well as insurance companies, and service providers all on the same stage at The Insurance Telematics USA 2015 Conference. Each part of the ecosystem will have a different perspective on this and this event will be only place to hear each side of the argument’.    

Insurers such as The Hartford, Progressive, American Family Insurance, Zurich, MAPFRE, Liberty Mutual and many more will lead discussions at The Insurance Telematics USA 2015 Conference & Exhibition (September 2-3, Chicago). Other key players such as GM, Volkswagen, Acord, ATG Risk Solutions and PCI will also contribute to discussions of UBI data management.
