|Finch Group Offers Telematics Package For
|Microlise, the telematic platform provider,
has been working in conjunction with
Finch Group, the
specialist motor fleet insurer, to offer an impressive new telematics package
called FITS (also known as Fleet Insurance Telematics Solutions). This scheme
has been created with the intention of helping to reduce the expense of premiums
for HGV operators who want to manage the costs of their insurance in a proactive
manner. Improvements include linking a new 24 hour claims centre to the data
transmitted from the vehicle telematics. This means the Finch Group team will
be informed almost immediately about any strange driving activities, so they
can provide a quick first notification of loss (sometimes referred to as FNOL).
The transferring of this data and the style of managing the information straight
after an incident has occurred is completely unique to FITS. It also means that
HGV operators who take out this insurance package will be able to benefit from
a reduced level of claims and costs, which, in turn, means reduced premiums and
The telematics scheme from Microlise would be suited to the chosen needs of each
customer. As well as reducing the cost of premiums and the errors in accident
reporting, companies will also have the option of being able to improve their
efficiency in both driver and vehicle performances.
Additional features include real time journey management and proof of delivery,
giving companies the chance to gain valuable insights into how well their drivers
and vehicles are doing. These stats and figures can be used by transport managers
to see which drivers could potentially be at a higher risk of being part of incidents,
thus allowing them to plan ahead and put measures in place, before claims are
made. It is thought that this sort of insurance cover would help deal with the
number of HGV accidents that occur on a yearly basis. On average, 20% of fatal
accidents in London occur between cyclists and HGVs, when the HGV is making a
left turn at a junction. There are a quarter of accidents that result in serious
injury to cyclists when HGV and other large vehicles, such as buses and coaches,
pass too closely to the rider. It is also worth being aware of the visual
disorder guidelines that apply to HGV drivers, as these can sometimes lead
to accidents if they are not met.
Another report, commissioned by the Campaign for Better Transport, found that
over half (52%) of the fatal accidents on motorways involve HGVs, even though
these types of vehicles only make up 10% of motorway traffic. HGVs are also involved
in 1 out of 5 accidents on A-roads, with this ratio getting worse over the last
few years and a HGV is five times as likely to be part of a fatal accident on
a minor road when compared to other types of traffic.
