Marmalade, the provider of cars and car insurance for young drivers in the UK, has partnered with CMT, a provider of smartphone telematics and behavioural analytics, the company said.
Switching to CMT´s App+Tag solution will improve user experience and safety for young drivers, and risk analysis for Marmalade and its insurance partners.
The new driver app coaches safer driving behaviours, and is linked to a Tag, a small sensor fixed on the windscreen. The App+Tag automatically records trips and offers drivers and Marmalade valuable information, including:
The technology will be used on Marmalade´s Named Young Driver Insurance, which allows brand new drivers to use their parents´ car alongside an already existing insurance policy. When those drivers are ready to have their own vehicles with their own policy, they will be able to insure them using the same system.
Because no hardware installation is required, the solution is compatible with all vehicles and only takes minutes to set up. It also captures all journeys, allowing Marmalade and its insurance partners to reduce fraud and receive higher quality data. As a result, their loss ratios can improve.
