As OEMs and telematics service providers roll out global platforms for usage-based insurance offerings, they need to tailor them for regional and local markets. While a handful of UBI solutions are taking off, the road is littered with failures. In this podcast with TU’s Susan Kuchinskas, Bruneteau identifies the factors that have made these local solutions successful and warns of the risks to vendors that don't offer the right services and the right business model.
Susan Kuchinskas is a regular contributor to TU.
