VisionTrack wins EMEA innovation award

VisionTrack, part of the Markerstudy Group of Companies, has been crowned regional winner for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at the Gartner Financial Services ‘Eye on Innovation’ Awards.

The company also won the Most Innovative Digital Customer Service or Product category, securing both titles for its progressive use of big data technology to aid safer driving on UK roads.

VisionTrack, a combined camera and telematics in-vehicle solutions provider, launched in February 2016 to help improve road safety to benefit the insurance and fleet industries and drivers everywhere. The new venture takes advantage of next generation camera technology and has connected it, in real-time, to a bespoke cloud-based ‘internet of things’ (IoT) platform, allowing fleet operators to track a vehicle and predict driving patterns.

Markerstudy’s IT director, Dan Fiehn, whose team is behind the development of VisionTrack’s platform, said, ‘We are a forward-facing organisation that always looks to improve processes and adopt new technologies in insurance. Being recognised for this by Gartner at an international level is fantastic.’

Gartner, a leading information technology research and advisory company, holds the annual awards to recognise ‘innovative use of technology-enabled capabilities to highlight best-in-class financial industry initiatives’.
