Auto insurer Progressive offers Motive’s AI-based safety

Motive, an automated operations company, has partnered with Progressive Commercial, an auto and truck insurer to offer Motive’s AI-based safety solutions.

The offering supports each company’s commitment to driver safety while offering customers solutions subsidies and lower insurance premiums.

Motive and Progressive Commercial are offering a 40-50% monthly per vehicle subsidy on the Motive Driver Safety solution that collects data about driver behaviour and provides insights into safety risks and ways to address them.

Motive said it partnered with Progressive Commercial to help customers increase safety and cut insurance costs. This also helps them improve their ROI as they’re forced to do more with less in the face of increased regulation and macroeconomic pressure.

The Motive Driver Safety solution, including the Motive AI Dashcam and Vehicle Gateway, provide critical driver safety features that reduce accidents and have the ability to decrease insurance premiums.

Driver safety is critical for everyone in the industry, and Motive has invested years building an AI-based safety solution that helps drivers and operators improve driver safety.

Insurance is one of the top five largest expenses for truckers. The solution achieves this by accurately detecting safety issues such as seatbelt violations, alerting drivers to unsafe behaviour in real time, providing safety managers with full visibility into the safety behaviour of every driver and uncovering any blind spots.

The solution also uses video recording to assist drivers with unjustified claims and lawsuits.

Founded in 2013, Motive builds technology to improve the safety, productivity, and profitability of physical operations. While its early customers were trucking companies, today Motive serves a broad range of industries across the physical economy. 

To address the needs of its expanding customer base, Motive has launched the Automated Operations Platform. The platform combines IoT hardware with AI-powered applications that automate vehicle and equipment tracking, driver safety, compliance, maintenance, spend management, and more.
