Real-time issues need real-time insurance

Connected car data makes it possible

Major Trends in Insurance

Getting insurance is often related to lots of paperwork, stress, taking hours over the phone or having personal appointments to solve a simple issue. Digitalization is part of our every day and it shouldn’t be the exception when it comes to insurance. The generation gap is slowly shifting and the younger generations are soon going to be the ones with the purchasing power. Digital natives are willing to share their data in exchange of an efficient and fast digital service. Connected vehicle data can make this possible and can help with customer retention & loyalty in the long run.

Adapt for
new generations

Gen X and The Boomer segment are currently the most active generation in influencing purchases. Nevertheless by 2025 millennials as well as GenZs will have the generation’s buying dominance.

Less accidents but higher repair costs

Many people who own or lease a car have at least one type of newer safety technology such as navigation systems and blind spot detection. This results in fewer accidents but higher repair costs.

Strong interest in mobility data

There is a strong interest in smartphone apps that provides real-time alerts and advice about driving behavior and conditions when the car is parked or being driven.

Less car ownership more on-demand

There is a potential decrease in car ownership by younger generations. Non-owned vehicles and alternative mobility options like rideshare, and rentals are used more and more.

Can I get telematic data for just any car?

No, access to OE data is limited to specific car makes and models. Please check our lists of models per brands through: /connected-car-makes-and-models/
You can also reach out to our team to conduct a free “capability check” for your fleet, based on your list of VIN numbers.

How much does the data cost?

Two price elements have to be taken into consideration: the yearly fee to access to the Caruso dataplace and the cost of the data itself. For the yearly fee please check: /pricing/
