Corporate insurance intermediary CBG Group and telematics specialist Eagle-i, have announced a strategic partnership aimed at promoting the benefits of Eagle-i’s Monitor3 system to CBG’s customers.
The partnership has already registered its first success with North West-based point-of-sale equipment installation and sales operation CJ Services, which runs a fleet of 85 vehicles.
CJ Services has implemented Eagle-i’s Monitor3 system in all its vehicles as a condition of a new two-year preferential fleet insurance policy with CBG.
Both CJ Services and CBG expect to see financial benefits over the life of the two-year insurance deal, in lower accident rates and reduced repair costs.
Manchester-based CBG has in excess of 1,000 fleets on its books and expects that many larger customers will derive benefits from implementing telematics.
CBG group managing director Mike Askew said he was convinced of the benefits of deploying telematics into fleets and that in five years’ time he expected telematics systems to be standard equipment on many vehicles.
He said: “We believe in the full wrap-around effect of telematics for fleet operators, including improved risk management, driver awareness and reduced accident rates and costs, along with assisting with obligations for managing work-related road safety.”
