Direct Insurance Meets Technology

As restaurant industry insurance experts, especially for businesses that rely heavily on delivery, we recognize how a successful telematics program will positively impact a business owner’s bottom line.

What Is Telematics?

Telematics uses a combination of GPS technology and diagnostic data to monitor movement for the purposes of tracking an asset. Telematics uses a device connected to a cellular network to upload information to a server where it can then be aggregated, analyzed, and accessed by the end user through a data visualization software system.

For the delivery-driven restaurant, “telematics” is becoming the common method for measuring, monitoring, and optimizing driver behavior.

While telematics uses GPS technology, it’s not necessarily a replacement for the productivity trackers you may already be using. GPS provides insights on driver whereabouts for customers or in-store logistics, but alone won’t marry location information to the driving behaviors most -likely to lead to an accident.

This is where third-parties like Drivosity, a leading provider of telematics solutions for first-party delivery operations, are jumping in to help.

What you can measure… you can manage.

Drivosity’s system (and all telematics systems) look at 4 driving components:

  • Speeding
  • Cornering
  • Braking
  • Acceleration

Each trip, the technology tracks the number of times a driver deviates from scientifically-proven safe driving tolerances. Drivosity’s technology produces a DriveScore® at the end of each trip, letting managers know where the driver performed well, and where the driver needs to improve.
