Secure ATG Clearinghouse offers insurance carriers permission-based access to Zonar customers’ vehicle and driving history data to assist underwriting and claims
SEATTLE – Sept. 11, 2015 – ATG Risk Solutions, creators of the FAIR™ Score, a safe driving index compiled from billions of miles of driving data sourced from the insurance industry’s first telematics Clearinghouse, and innovative fleet telematics provider Zonar recently announced an agreement under which Zonar clients can opt in to risk management and underwriting programs offered by ATG Clearinghouse commercial insurance carrier customers.
The ATG Clearinghouse allows auto insurers to access a standardized and verified set of vehicle analytics and data on the driven environment to enhance their underwriting methods. With the world’s largest telematics vehicle database for underwriting and claims, the ATG Clearinghouse serves as a secure and trusted repository of data on how, where and when commercial vehicles are being driven. By participating in the Clearinghouse, telematics service provider fleet management companies (TSPs) such as Zonar empower their fleet customers with the ability to improve safety scores and garner insurance benefits.
“Zonar is one of the industry’s premier TSPs, a true innovator in telematics data collection for fleet management and driver safety, with pace-setting products like their Ground Traffic Control® system and innovative 2020® mobile communications tablet,” said ATG Risk Solutions Founder and President Chris Carver. “Now, as a founding TSP partner of the ATG Clearinghouse, Zonar continues its leadership role by helping make usage-based insurance a reality for insurers and insureds alike.”
ATG gathers, stores, normalizes and standardizes vehicle and driving data, facilitating the private and secure transaction of data between TSPs and insurers, with the consent of the policyholder/fleet owner. In so doing, ATG serves as a single, standardized data source that integrates seamlessly with the insurance carriers’ underwriting process.
“Thanks to the ATG Clearinghouse, our fleet customers now have a means of sharing their vehicle and driving data with their insurers in a protected, yet transparent, way that will help them better manage risk, simplify claims and reduce losses. This is surely a win-win for our customers and their insurers,” said Brett Brinton, Zonar CEO and Co-Founder “This revolutionary data-sharing program will undoubtedly save lives and increase the profitability of our clients.”
