Hartford, Conn.-based Travelers has introduced IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions, an offering combining telematics data with risk management consulting with the goal of improving safety for its fleet customers.

“IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions can help fleet and risk managers use telematics technology and the wealth of information they provide. This will not only help customers understand driver data, but also provide the tools that will aid in developing specific training programs that positively modify driving behavior,” says Chris Hayes, Director of Transportation Services, Travelers Risk Control, in a statement.

Travelers customers can work with the insurer and risk consultants from its subsidiary Northland Insurance Company to:

  • Identify and understand areas in need of improvement within their fleet
  • Determine the telematics information that is available to shape their safety programs
  • Help identify the telematics devices that will work best for them
  • Provide guidance on effective driver feedback and coaching

“We sit all our drivers down and give them a safety test, but there’s nothing you can do about common sense,” adds Bob Jones, Travelers' Fleet Loss Prevention Manager, Universal Protection, in the statement. “Our telematics program helps us close that gap. I’d like to believe we’ve saved lives.”
