Safety First: Travelers’ Telematics Program Looks to Control Risks

Sometimes, just having access to good data is all a business needs. At least that’s how Travelers Insurance views its telematics program, IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions for its commercial lines.

“We want to be there to help them make good decisions, augment their risk control program, and ultimately make them a safer fleet,” says Chris Hayes, risk control director of transportation services for Travelers.

Travelers does not push its fleet customers toward any particular telematics system, according to Hayes. In fact, in the risk assessments Travelers hasdone with insurers over the last 18 to 24 months, the carrier has seen well over 100 different telematics systems in place, according to Hayes.

“Some are simple devices you can plug directly into your car and some involve much more labor-intensive installation,” he says.
