North Ireland brokerage AbbeyAutoline has teamed up with Howden Driving Data to revamp its ChilliDrive app and assist young drivers in reducing their car insurance premiums by encouraging safer driving habits.
This collaboration will introduce state-of-the-art telematics technology to the ChilliDrive app, allowing for comprehensive monitoring of driving behaviour. Using data science and artificial intelligence algorithms, the app will be able to automatically record a driver’s journey and then provide feedback on driving habits, including speed, acceleration, braking, and cornering.
The aim of these enhancements is to positively influence driver behaviour and encourage young drivers to adopt safer practices on the road, according to a press release from AbbeyAutoline. By actively working towards improving their driving skills, young drivers can potentially lower their car insurance premiums.
“We’re excited to partner with this world-leading telematics technology provider to revamp our ChilliDrive app and promote safer driving habits among young drivers,” said Alan McConnell, director of analytics at AbbeyAutoline.
“Telematics technology has been a game-changer in the insurance industry, enabling us to better understand driving behaviour and provide more personalised insurance premiums based on each individual and their driving profiles.”
Howden Driving Data is a division of the global insurance group Howden. It utilises telematics technology to create and configure specialist insurance services that seek to positively influence driver behaviour, ultimately reducing claims costs.
“Our collaboration with AbbeyAutoline has allowed us to harness the power of data science and AI to deliver personalised and timely feedback to every ChilliDrive app insured young driver, helping them to identify areas for improvement and become safer drivers,” said Jon Law, managing director at Howden Driving Data.
“It has been an exciting partnership, and we are proud to see Northern Ireland’s leading insurance broker embrace telematics technology and taking steps to promote responsible driving among young drivers. We look forward to continuing to work together to enhance the ChilliDrive app and promote safe driving habits in Northern Ireland.”
