Teaming up for driver safety

Quartix, one of the UK’s leading telematics providers, has joined forces with Towergate to help customers reduce risk and potentially reduce insurance costs as part of Towergate’s Fleetcare+ product.

Quartix offers advanced driver behaviour reporting on both its InfoPlus and Corporate packages, along with its full range of online vehicle tracking tools.

With its sensitive built-in monitor, the system analyses driving style in terms of acceleration, braking and speeding. The management information, provided in easy-to-read graphical reports, then gives customers the ability to make substantial savings in fuel costs whilst dramatically improving the safety of the mobile workforce.

With the data supplied by the system, Towergate is able to highlight the potential risks and effectively reward operators that are working towards a safer fleet.

Towergate Insurance, one of the leading providers of specialist insurance in the UK, has over 30 years’ expertise in the transportation sector and its directors are convinced telematics are changing the face of motor insurance.

Larry Smith, managing director of Towergate Insurance Motor, said: “The future is telematics. It predicts what could happen in the future and gives us the opportunity to stop the loss before it occurs.”
