Travelers Calls Upon SaaS Provider for Intellidrive Fleet Safety Solutions Program

February 21, 2012

Travelers has chosen Teologis, Inc., a company that offers software as a service (SaaS (News - Alert)) to provide location intelligence, to enhance its IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions program, which gives customers what they need -- including consulting services -- to learn about fleet vehicle operations. The IntelliDrive service educates people on things like speeding and hand braking, which help reduce the amount of people that make false or exaggerated claims about an experience involving a vehicle. The system also assists with telematics-based coaching, which lets large fleet managers cut down on accidents and losses while reducing insurance expenses as well.

Right now, Travelers offers IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions to customers with local or intermediate fleets through its own company. The company will also be offering the solutions to its truck fleets within the Northland division. IntelliDrive serves a vast user base of small and medium fleets, up to the mega fleets that play a major role in global transportation of goods. It also comes useful to many different types of businesses, including box trucks for goods and the big 18-wheelers with double trailers used for long hauls and construction supplies. Telematics solutions help businesses improve their fuel efficiency and plan their routes smarter, in ways that would help the vehicles last longer.

"Auto accidents are the leading cause of workplace injuries and fatalities," says Chris Hayes, director of transportation, Travelers Risk Control. "By reducing the risk of motor vehicle accidents, customers not only limit their liability, but preserve the life and health of their employees. IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions can help by turning insights into concrete ways to improve fleet safety and reduce the substantial costs of operating a fleet."

"Safety and telematics go hand-in-hand. Telematics helps businesses identify and act upon driving behaviors and situations that put employee safety and asset security at risk. We're excited to work with Travelers and Northland to provide customers with the safety and operational benefits of our location intelligence platform," says Gary Hallgren, VP of corporate strategy, Telogis (News - Alert).
