Combating commercial auto through telematics

Lisle, IL & Peabody, MA – (BUSINESS WIRE) – AAIS, the only national non-profit advisory organization, and eTech Services, Inc., a technology solutions provider focused exclusively on the insurance vertical, are partnering to deliver telematics-enabled solutions to AAIS Member insurance carriers for commercial auto insurance. AAIS delivers quality policy forms, rating information, and data management capabilities used by more than 700 property and casualty (P&C) insurers.

As an AAIS Associate Partner, eTech offers AAIS Members access to its technology platforms to address litigation financing and adverse commercial auto trends. These cloud-based platforms include the Telematics Exchange, a turn-key telematics solution for commercial insurance companies, and eLive Connect, a 24/7 loss prevention and safety training center.

“We are looking forward to working with AAIS and its many Members,” said Kevin Seth, President of eTech. “The commitment of AAIS to technology and insurtech-based solutions is critical to addressing commercial auto trends.”

eTech Solutions developed the Telematics Exchange, which aggregates data from policyholders’ telematics service providers (TSPs) through a consent process. The platform integrates with over 50 TSPs representing about 85% of the installed telematics systems in commercial vehicles today.   The Telematics Exchange includes dashboards for utilization, garaging/radius, territory, speeding, and fleet footprint.

Through the contextual and telematics data of the Telematics Exchange, insurance companies can capitalize on eTech’s eLive Connect to assign specific interactive training to drivers. The combination of the Telematics Exchange and eLive Connect offer a powerful underwriting, loss prevention, and claims tool to identify and improve driver behavior.

Commenting on the partnership, John Kadous, Vice President of AAIS Personal Lines and Auto said “AAIS is committed to the development of a comprehensive, technology and data-supported commercial auto program. We are excited about the new value our partnership with eTech will deliver to our Member carriers in this challenging market.”
