Octo will also be in attendance at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Barcelona from 5th to 9th November

London, 6th November 2017: Octo Telematics (Octo), the number one global one global provider of telematics for the auto insurance industry, has today launched its newsletter, Accelerating Digital Transformation in Insurance, featuring Gartner research. Gartner, is the world’s leading technology research and advisory company. Octo is recognized in Gartner’s “How to Achieve Digital Business Excellence by Mastering Pervasive Integration” report released on 31st August 2017.

Octo senior executives will also be in attendance at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo being held in Barcelona from the 5th to 9th November.

The newsletter focuses on Octo’s newly-released insurtech ecosystem, the Next Generation Platform (NGP) and its ability to address common challenges faced by insurers seeking to realize the tremendous opportunities provided by increased digitalization. Insurers are often facing time and resource hurdles in smoothly replacing legacy systems, while also needing to select the right partners and solutions for their business. At the same time, any solution adopted must generate returns within a short space of time and mitigate risks, providing full return on investment. Octo’s NGP can support this, and the platform is able to uniquely link the characteristics of a horizontal IoT framework with rapidity and revenue to pre-build vertical use cases, helping insurance companies accelerate their digital evolution.

The newsletter examines aspects of the NGP such as:

Enabling insurers to move from a traditional approach to real, data-driven big data

analytics and scoring

Its breadth of service and sensors

Profiling drivers through the ‘driver genome’

AI for crash validation and reconstruction

CRM service on cloud and digital

Gianfranco Giannella, COO, Octo Telematics said: “Digitalization is a key theme in most industries and the insurance industry is no exception. However, the industry has been lagging 2

behind and there is work to be done. We’re pleased to launch this newsletter featuring Gartner research as we believe that our NGP can offer immediate benefits to insurance companies that are emphasizing their digital transformation and seeking to include cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning algorithms and big data analytics into their insurance offerings.”
