Trimble has announced that it is partnering with Equity Red Star will form part of Equity Red Star’s new risk and vehicle management solution, Equitrack, for the commercial motor and motor fleet sectors.
In addition to helping companies reduce road risk, Equitrack is designed to deliver productivity improvements through improved visibility and fleet management capabilities across a variety of industries including motor fleet, bus and coach, taxi, minibus and commercial vehicles.
"More and more insurance companies are realising the benefits of being able to offer commercial customers access to technology that can help keep drivers safe and reduce risk,” said Andrew Yeoman, managing director of Trimble Fleet Solutions. “By using Trimble’s telematics solutions, Equity Red Star can help organisations understand how their drivers behave on the road. This information can then be translated into helping fleet managers and service directors run safer, more efficient fleets which in turn can translate to operational and insurance savings.”
Equity Insurance Group’s ceo Ian Foy said: “Initial reaction to Equitrack from our brokers and their customers has been very positive. This is technology being applied in a highly pragmatic way to the commercial motor market. Many of the brokers we are speaking to recognise that Equitrack has the potential to deliver dividends in terms of client operational efficiencies as the information it provides helps drive down both costs and claims.”
