Allianz Commercial has partnered with Lightfoot to provide the risk management tool to its commercial motor insurance customers.
The partnership enables Allianz’s fleet and motor trade policyholders to purchase Lightfoot at a discounted rate, which is an in-cab device can be fitted to any vehicle’s dashboard to provide real-time audio and visual feedback and coaching for drivers.
According to Lightfoot, the system has been proven to reduce ‘at fault’ accidents by up to 50% and fuel consumption by up to 20%.
Jonathan Dye, head of motor insurance at Allianz Commercial, said: “Our partnership with Lightfoot demonstrates our commitment to using new technologies to help our customers improve driver safety and reduce their operating costs.
“Running a safe and cost-effective fleet is crucial to maintaining a profitable business, which is why more and more companies are investing in risk management initiatives, such as Lightfoot to help manage their fleets”.
Martin Kadhim, director at Lightfoot said: “Lightfoot takes a radically different approach to traditional telematics by empowering the driver to change their own behaviour.
“We are delighted that Allianz has chosen to work with Lightfoot, recognising our unique methodology as an effective means of helping UK fleets become safer and more efficient.
“Real-time, all-of-the-time coaching generates consistent and lasting improvements that not only enhance driver competency, but cut fuel bills, accidents, wear and tear, CO2 emissions and the volume of data that fleet managers have to contend with - a win, win situation for all involved.”
