Autosaint and Wunelli enter agreement

Autosaint has entered into a new agreement with Wunelli to support its mileage and behaviour based telematics proposition for younger drivers.

As part of the contract, Wunelli has developed a functionality for Autosaint to actively encourage parental engagement to support safer driving. Wunelli will also provide complete telematics solution, from managing hardwired black box installation through to data collection, analysis and scoring.

As part of a bespoke solution, policy holders and a nominated parent are given secure e-mail based access to a customer dashboard that shows driving scores and recorded mileage, plus further feedback to support good driving behaviour.

This is intended to help parents take a more active role in encouraging improved driving behaviour, and can also provide peace of mind if the feedback is positive. In addition to access to their child’s dashboard, parents are sent regular emails on scoring and mileage as well as extreme event alerts.

The scoring algorithms are based on reckless events, braking, acceleration, night driving and speeding, and is designed using the most accurate and up-to-date database of road speed limits in the UK.

At the back end, a Wunelli portal enables Autosaint administrators to monitor policies, review trips and assess incident alerts. The portal will also benefit Autosaint insurer partners by providing them with instant access to driver data and incident alerts.

Selim Cavanagh, vice president of Wunelli said, ‘This a great example of Wunelli’s ability to deliver bespoke solutions to insurers and brokers. Autosaint is a firmly established broker in the telematics space, so we are pleased to have the opportunity to provide the telematics data skills and parental feedback capability to take them to the next stage of development.’

Chris Pryor, Autosaint product head added, ‘The Wunelli platform provides us with the opportunity to further support our telematics strategy and to enhance our proposition to our customers and insurer partners.’
