CAA Insurance and Octo Telematics Named Best Technology Provider at ICTA 2019

Insurance telematics leader wins for work on CAA’s MyPace™

NEWTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Octo Telematics, a leading global provider of telematics and data
analytics solutions for the auto insurance industry, with their partner
CAA Insurance, was named the Best Technology Provider at the 2019
Insurance-Canada.ca Technology Conference
 in Toronto on Tuesday,
February 26. Winners were selected by a jury from among five impressive
finalists. Both companies were recognized for CAA MyPace™, Canada’s
first “pay-as-you-drive” insurance offering.

Octo provided a customized solution and flexible mix-and-match service
selection for CAA to build a new customer experience for policyholders.
The app allows motorists to track how much they are driving and to pay
for auto insurance based on that mileage.

“We recognized the value that a partnership with an industry pioneer
like Octo Telematics would bring to our solution and it’s nice that
industry leaders have recognized their contribution to our success,”
said Robin Joshua, vice president, CAA Insurance. “Octo’s storied
history in insurance telematics made them an obvious choice as a
technology provider for our disruptive, first-of-its-kind program in
Canada. We’re proud that the program has been recognized as a leading
example in the insurance industry.”

CAA’s MyPace allows motorists to have more control over their auto
insurance. Through telematics and new billing technologies, MyPace
allows motorists to track how much they drive and pay for auto insurance
based on that mileage. CAA Insurance integrated several existing
technology platforms and developed new properties to enable this
first-to-market offering in a way that created no disruption to the
motorist. Drivers simply insert a telematics device into their car,
download an app, and then drive.

“Today’s connected insurance revolution, at
its core, is about making insurance better through the IoT.
Congratulations to CAA on pushing the envelope and embracing IoT to
provide enhanced offerings to its policyholders,” said Geoff Werner,
Americas’ Country Manager at Octo Telematics. “We are proud to be a part
of this innovative offering and delighted that we could help expand
CAA’s value proposition by quickly integrating and deploying a program
that fit their needs. Thank you to Insurance-Canada.ca and the ICTA jury
for the recognition of our role in this initiative.”
