A technology company founded by Allstate is partnering with an automotive software developer to create solutions aimed at enhancing the experience of both drivers and fleet managers.
The collaboration between the Allstate-founded Arity and developer Xevo is looking to deliver a range of vehicle connectivity and navigation features, utilizing the former’s Automotive and Shared Mobility Solutions and the latter’s Xevo Market – an in-vehicle merchant-to-driver commerce platform. Armed with their technologies, both companies hope to provide drivers and fleet managers with personalized driving services and risk management information.
Some of the new features and products both companies plan to make available on Xevo Market include:
Improved insurance options and pricing for consumers: Based on an individual or group’s actual driving behaviors; includes usage-based insurance.
Driving services: OEMs and navigation solution providers will make their suite of services available on the platform, allowing individuals and fleets to select safer routes.
Intelligent tools: Xevo’s connected car platform, combined with Arity’s Shared Mobility Solutions, transforms into an end-to-end experience that offers fleet operators the right business intelligence tools to efficiently manage risk.
“The auto industry is in the midst of a transformational change, and OEMs are working tirelessly to adapt,” said Arity president Gary Hallgren. “Our collaboration with Xevo will better position OEMs to leverage connected car data for revenue-generating opportunities and deliver a more personalized, intelligent in-car experience—a key pillar of the auto industry’s value proposition in the future.”
“Xevo Market makes it easy for OEMs to deliver smarter, safer, more productive journeys to their customers, and we are happy to collaborate with Arity to build even more useful, intuitive in-vehicle features and services,” added Xevo CEO Dan Gittleman. “Working together gives us the opportunity to help individuals and fleet managers get the personalized information they need to effectively manage risk and keep costs down.”
