The use of technology will enable you to drive your fleet management cost down. We are big advocates for the use of technology to help manage risk, mitigate losses and reduce frequency of claims – all leading to reduced premium spend. Our telematics offering is just one example of how this has been used to manage risk.These programmes are underwritten on a three year basis and provide guarantees of stable rates, giving non-claim reductions and minimal increases based upon claims. We are also working with a provider to develop instant claims reporting at the time of the incident, including third party details and injuries – all assisting in helping reduce your operating costs.

We can provide you with access to a specialist insurance programme that includes CCTV in vehicles, and will provide you with real time alerts of possible incidents or bad driving. This will, in the long term, help you reduce accident frequency, claims cost and ultimately premiums and vehicle-operating costs.
