Online reporting of driver behavior to insurance companies enables the implementation of usage-based insurance (UBI) and "pay as you drive (PAYD)" plans.
Usage Based Insurance (UBI), which is also known as Pay As You Drive (PAYD) or Pay How You Drive (PHYD), is vehicle insurance where the cost is dependent on the type of vehicle used, measured against time, distance, driving behavior and location.
Cellocator's Cello-IQ and Cello-CANiQ devices address the needs of the evolving fleet management market, which is trending towards accumulating advanced remote diagnostics, vehicle management and Driver Safety applications for UBI logic.
Eliminating Risky Driving
Insurance companies can increase the value of their portfolios and at the same time help their insured fleets and fleet drivers improve their own performance.
Many of the insurance costs - and liabilities stemming from accidents - are often down to 3-5% of drivers in large fleets. Cellocator solutions can help identify problematic and risky driving in real-time, alerting the fleet and the insurer to the need for training to adhere to pre-defined acceptable driving standards.
Using an optional Cellocator in-cab driver feedback display and audio alert, the fleet can reduce offenses that can lead to accidents, including alerts for harsh acceleration, hard breaking while turning, over-speeding, and more. In this way, every insurance company can turn a losing portfolio into a profitable one.
Cellocator devices help improve the overall health, safety and security of the fleet through managed preventative maintenance and enhanced security.

Right from the get-go, Cellocator enables cost-cutting, risk mitigation, and gaining better control of fleet vehicles and their drivers.
