Answer Financial launches telematics-based mobile app

Answer Financial has launched Streetwise Drivers Club, the free mobile app that lets drivers earn rewards for beating driving challenges, the company said.

Answer Financial said app leverages native GPS technology in smartphones to capture driving characteristics such as distance, speed and how hard someone is braking. This information is provided after each trip to paint a picture of the person´s driving behavior and share those insights to help them become smarter, safer drivers on the road. Streetwise works in the background on the phone, so there is no risk of driver distraction.

Answer Financial, through its agencies Insurance Answer Center and Right Answer Insurance, provides auto and home insurance policies directly to consumers through a network of marketing partners.
