Safety is an increasingly key topic in my meetings with clients. There is a growing demand from local and international customers for safety solutions. Not only our clients see their drivers' health and safety as a top priority, but safer driving and less accidents can also help them reduce costs related to insurance premiums, sick leave, damages and repairs. Research tell us that company car drivers have a crash and casualty rate that is around 50% higher than private motorists, with over 90% of all accidents being caused by driver error such as poor anticipation, inappropriate reaction to a hazard or violation of road traffic laws i.
A first step in our process is assessing our clients’ insurance fleet strategy and their specific challenges dealing with accidents and vehicle damages. The main challenges we see are related to reporting insights and to driving the number of fleet accidents down for a safer fleet. So we start by capturing their data or looking at their claims and accident data on My Fleet reporting, and by performing a thorough root-cause analysis, while benchmarking our clients against their peers. Based on this, we are able to provide specific recommendations tailored to their situation and of their specific countries.
