Leading in-vehicle video telematics provider VisionTrack was recognised with its twelfth accolade last night (23rd May), lifting the ‘Claims Product Solution of the Year – Service Provider (Technology)’ trophy at the Insurance Times Claims Excellence Awards.
Held at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, the awards ‘recognise and reward excellence across claims’ and ‘shine a light on outstanding achievement, celebrating the best of the best’.
In 2018 VisionTrack developed its technology to become even more flexible, help prevent incidents, further cut insurance premiums for fleets and speed up the FNOL process. It launched a white-label and gateway solution for customers already using a telematics provider who want to add video. It introduced cameras with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features which can identify lane departure, forward collisions, tailgating and vulnerable pedestrians or cyclists, while the in-vehicle monitor can recognise if a driver is tired or distracted by actions such as mobile phone use, smoking and eating. As a result, a driver can immediately be alerted to any potential dangers via audible/ visual warnings. At the same time, an office-based fleet manager can monitor areas of concern both in real-time and historically, so they are able to take appropriate actions to improve road safety and driver welfare.
Simon Marsh, VisionTrack’s Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted to have won this award, our twelfth for the trophy cabinet! Developments during the last year mean we’re now able to provide fleets with quality footage through our cameras, even if they have a different telematics system and our ADAS cameras have proved to be real game-changers. It’s fantastic to be formally recognised by the industry – a fitting tribute to our team who work so hard.
“We’ve been phenomenally successful in reducing premiums and incidents, detecting fraudulent and exaggerated claims and cutting disputed claims rates. We know our innovative solution sets us apart from the competition and we’re looking forward to driving this technology forward”.
