Redtail Telematics

Maximising the ROI on your investment in telematics

Speakers: Dr Colin Smithers, Founder and CEO Redtail Telematics

Venturing into the world of UBI is expensive, not only in the telematics itself but the operational changes that must be made to accommodate it.

Dr Colin Smithers, Founder and CEO of Redtail Telematics discusses how this can best be done by applying telematics outputs to each department – sales, pricing, claims, fraud and, of course, driver risk mitigation. Application in all these areas can lead to reported performance improvements of 40%, completely justifying the original investment.
