Innovation, Insight and Intelligence

How we turn driving data into analytics solutions that are transforming the insurance industry.

Our technology captures and analyses behavioral, contextual and driving data to provide innovative solutions for our partners, and is powered by the largest telematics database in the world.

This creates winning strategies for insurers in how they price risk, manage and pay claims and maximize their customer relationships.

Our mission

‘To harness the power of data to provide smart solutions for the connected world’

Innovation is what we do

Through our connected car software platform and unique technological capabilities were able to develop and manage a comprehensive and integrated portfolio of telematics solutions.

Our connected car software platform is built to address the challenges facing the automotive insurance industry and integrates with our business partners’ IT systems.

Building the Best Technology Solutions:

The largest global telematics database

We have created and continue to grow the world’s largest insurance telematics database. We have analyzed more than 127 billion miles of driving data and 340,000 crashes to support the delivery of our services. 

Proprietary predictive algorithms

Our platform analyzes and correlates the behavioral, contextual and driving data of an individual policyholder against similar driving profiles in our dataset to formulate an accurate prediction risk profile. In addition, our proprietary algorithms enable crash notification and reconstruction.

Operation across devices

Our platform operates across a wide variety of devices, which enables our insurance partners to choose the device type that is most appropriate for a particular customer segment and service proposition. This spans smartphone apps, traditional telematics devices and connected cars.

Continuing to lead through technology strategy

Our Technology Strategy team ensures the continued innovation of both our technology and platform, in addition to exploring adjacent market sectors where our data-analytics capabilities can provide an advantage for our partners.

From conception to market leadership

Fabio Sbianchi founded Octo in 2002 to provide telematics to the motor insurance industry.

Fabio saw that the way insurance quotes are typically calculated, against a set of static metrics, didn’t represent an accurate risk profile for drivers; with no way of rewarding good drivers and helping all motorists become safer on the road.

By introducing telematics to the industry, Octo has helped auto insurers to accurately calculate risk and manage and pay claims based on data analysis; making insurance pricing fairer and more transparent for drivers.

Today, Octo has grown into the leading global insurance telematics provider, with more than 60 insurance partners and 4.4 million active end users worldwide.

Our roots in behavioral, contextual and driving data analysis allow us to deliver analytics and connected car solutions to the automotive industry as well as the large rental and fleet sectors.
