Allstate Adds Six More States To Usage-based Insurance Program, Introduces Mobile App

NORTHBROOK, Ill., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Now available in 16 states, Allstate's usage-based insurance device, Drivewise ® , continues to improve driving behavior and reward customers for safe driving. Today, Missouri, Indiana, Minnesota, Maryland, Utah, and Washington State join 10 others delivering constant feedback to drivers through a website designed to help identify and improve driving habits. Drivewise measures things such as mileage, braking, speed, and time of day when a customer is driving. Using that data, Allstate calculates a discount for each customer using its telematics technology.

Today, Allstate also introduces a usage-based insurance app for smartphone users. Available for free download through iTunes ® or Google Play , the new Drivewise app provides near real-time updates with each trip and provides easier access to customers on the go (Before using the new Drivewise app, customers must register the application by entering their user ID and password, which must initially be setup online).

"This provides our customers a method to quickly identify ways to improve their driving and, at the same time, be rewarded for safe driving habits," said Allstate's Senior Product Vice President Ed Biemer.

Originally launched in Illinois in December 2010, Drivewise continues an aggressive rollout this year, with the majority of Allstate's marketplace expected to have the usage-based insurance tool by the end of 2013.

To date, more than 400 million miles have been driven by customers using the device and of those receiving a driving discount, the average savings is at 14 percent. The Drivewise program remains popular, too, as more than a third of all new customers enroll where it is available.

Upon signing up for and using the device, customers automatically receive a 10 percent enrollment discount and after the first six months of use, the enrollment discount is replaced with a performance discount based on the driving habits demonstrated.
