Since starting the first telematics program in 2005, Unipol has become the largest provider of telematics-based insurance policies, with more than four million UBI customers today.
Linear Assicurazioni, Unipol Group’s direct insurance brand, announced today the launch of “Linear Drive&Save”, a mobile-only program that invites drivers of all ages to demonstrate how safely they drive and receive up to a 15 percent discount on their car’s insurance policy.
The project has been developed with the technical support of Leithà, Unipol’s solution factory that specializes in data science and computer science.
The Linear Drive&Save app uses CMT’s DriveWell mobile sensing technology; it is easy to use and runs in the background after initial setup. The app collects driving behavior for five weeks, identifying and measuring risky events like speeding, hard braking, rapid acceleration, and phone distraction.
Leveraging Unipol’s expertise in telematics insurance, Leithà analyzes this smartphone data and builds a unique risk profile for each driver. After the assessment period, drivers receive a discount to buy a new Linear car policy, based on how safely they drive.
CMT is the largest mobile telematics provider - every month CMT analyzes billions of miles traveled by millions of drivers around the globe. With the most accurate data, the DriveWell platform measures distraction and other dangerous driving behaviors using a phone’s sensors.
“We are delighted to work with CMT, their expertise and technical capabilities demonstrates mobile telematics is a promising solution for the Italian insurance market”, says
“We are excited to partner with Unipol’s Linear to create Italy’s first behavior-based discount program,” said
The new Drive&Save app is out now and can be downloaded on iOS or Android by any driver in
