ALLIANZ DRIVES FLEET SAFETY WITH FMG
19 June 2015
Allianz Commercial has joined forces with fleet incident management provider FMG, to provide motor fleet customers with the capability to improve driver safety and fleet efficiency.
The partnership will allow Allianz’s fleet policyholders to access FMG’s market leading telematics software service, Ingenium Dynamics, at a discounted rate. Ingenium Dynamics aims to improve driver behaviour, by making it easier to identify, manage and reduce risk.
The installed telematics devices collect key driving data and translate it into a simple ‘dashboard’ to allow drivers and fleet managers to monitor driver and fleet performance. One of the key features of the system is the ability to allow comparison between users producing a league table highlighting high risk driving behaviour in a fleet. Other features include:
- Safety dashboard which identifies drivers that are driving outside of the companies set rules
- Incident notification and analysis
- Vehicle fault alerts
- Accurate mileage calculations
- Live location dashboard
The system can help to reduce fleet running costs, insurance premiums and carbon emissions, as well as increasing fuel efficiency and savings.
Jonathan Dye, head of motor insurance, Allianz Commercial commented: “Running a safe and cost-effective fleet is crucial to maintaining a profitable business, which is why more and more companies are investing in telematics to help manage their fleets. Our partnership with FMG demonstrates our commitment to digitalisation and using new technologies to help our fleet policyholders improve driver safety and reduce their operating costs.
He continued: “FMG’s Ingenium Dynamics has a proven track record of reducing incident claims with many of its clients seeing a 25%-80% reduction. I have no doubt that this partnership will benefit our many fleet customers by creating a safer workforce and cutting costs for their business.”
Harvey Stead, Commercial Director at FMG said “Securing this partnership with Allianz is another significant achievement for FMG. There is a strong appetite for improving driver behaviour as more companies are being judged on how they help their drivers to achieve better, safer driving practices. To ensure we deliver true value and sustainable benefits to Allianz’s fleet policyholders we’ll provide a fully supported service to fleet managers and individual drivers throughout the lifetime of the contract. The benefits of this hardly need stressing, but fewer incidents, together with improved driver engagement, make for a safer workforce and less cost to the business.”
