Novatel Wireless And SeeControl Introduce End-to-End Usage Based Insurance Solution





BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (Mobile World Congress Booth: 1A55) -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent wireless networking solutions and SeeControl, a leading provider of M2M applications, today introduce and demonstrate an end-to-end pre-integrated usage-based-insurance (UBI) telematics solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The UBI solution suite being demonstrated consists of pan-European connectivity, back office analytics, business and consumer facing applications as well as turnkey auto-provisioning support for Novatel Wireless MT 3000/ MT 3050 devices using the N4A™ CMS platform, enabling consumer plug-n-play self-installation. Combined with the SeeControl UBI application, the solution provides for a quick, easy and customized implementation per insurer. It offers key features designed to help capture new customers, reduce risk and eliminate fraud in claims processing:

  • Policy/Contract Management
  • Driver Risk Profiles
  • Customizable Driver Rating Algorithms
  • Multiple driver, multiple policy support
  • Market / Demographic Segmentation
  • Helpful tools for consumers such as diagnostic data plus oil change and maintenance reminders
  • Expansive telemetry options including speed, miles driven, idle time, harsh acceleration, harsh braking, possible accident, possible theft
  • Accident reconstruction
  • Full control of GPS data collection on a regional basis to comply with governmental and consumer privacy concerns

"The insurance companies are rapidly embracing UBI and pay-as-you-drive applications in order to offer aggressive discounts to drivers based on their actual driving statistics and behaviors," says Rob Hadley, CMO of Novatel Wireless. "We are excited to be working with SeeControl to help insurers better align their market programs with tailored pay-as-you-drive market applications and solutions."

The pre-integrated solution suite brings together all the elements needed for an insurer to rollout a program in weeks, not years.  It combines the cloud-based, enterprise grade application from SeeControl that brings workflow, visualization and analytics together with the Novatel Wireless N4A Communication and Management Software that manages the wireless device lifecycle from initial device provisioning and deployment to upgrades, maintenance and data management once in the field.  Additionally, it fully integrates the advanced features of the MT 3000 and MT 3050 to capture driver behavior data, set alerts and provide easy self-installation.
