How Much Can Telematics Help India Save on Car Insurance Costs?
Data and connectivity are fast becoming the currency and profit of the future. Organisations who can move fast will achieve competitive advantage in pricing and in processes.

The fast advancements in technology and high adoption rates we’re seeing in India, have presented a potential opportunity for Indian motor insurers to take the leap from asset-based insurance (directly) to usage-based insurance.
