Telogis is a Highlighted SaaS Provider for the IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions Program Offered by Travelers


Travelers' exciting new vehicle telematics initiative is designed to help business owners use the latest vehicle technology to implement effective fleet safety programs.

ALISO VIEJO, CA--February 15, 2012:  Telogis, Inc., the platform for location intelligence, is a highlighted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider for the new IntelliDriveŽ Fleet Safety Solutions program offered by Travelers. IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions provides consulting services and resources to help customers create a better understanding of how fleet vehicles are operated. This includes everything from speeding and hard braking to helping eliminate false or exaggerated claims by third parties. These systems not only help improve safety and awareness, but telematics-based coaching can help companies reduce accidents and their associated costs, as well as the total cost of insurance.

Travelers is offering its IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions for local and intermediate fleet customers through Travelers and to its long haul trucking fleets through its Northland division, one of the largest trucking insurance carriers in the country. The applications for this service apply to small, medium and large fleets serving a wide range of businesses, from automobiles used for sales calls to box trucks used for delivery of goods to large trucks used in construction and long haul. Key benefits of a telematics solution also include better fuel efficiency and routing, reduced wear and tear on vehicles, identification of unauthorized vehicle use and stolen vehicle retrieval.

"Auto accidents are the leading cause of workplace injuries and fatalities," says Chris Hayes, director of transportation, Travelers Risk Control. "By reducing the risk of motor vehicle accidents, customers not only limit their liability, but preserve the life and health of their employees. IntelliDrive Fleet Safety Solutions can help by turning insights into concrete ways to improve fleet safety and reduce the substantial costs of operating a fleet."

"Safety and telematics go hand-in-hand," says Gary Hallgren, vice president of corporate strategy, Telogis. "Telematics helps businesses identify and act upon driving behaviors and situations that put employee safety and asset security at risk. We're excited to work with Travelers and Northland to provide customers with the safety and operational benefits of our location intelligence platform."
