Hubio technology launches a new Farm insurance digital platform

September 30, 2019: Hubio Technology (Hubio), a provider of Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance solutions that enable frictionless transactions, is pleased to announce the launch of “Bloom” for Trillium Mutual Insurance on Hubio’s collabor8 cloud solution.

Trillium Mutual partnered with Hubio to develop a modern digital solution which enables quote and bind transactions as well as real time policy inquires for all aspects of the business including underwriting, claims and finance. This allows brokers and underwriters to seamlessly enter information and collaborate to efficiently deliver an improved customer experience.  This is achieved through industry-leading user experience (UX) design and event-based validation/underwriting rules. Ease of use and flexibility for the broker is enabled through Broker Management System (BMS) integration via Hubio’s established communic8 platform.

Deployment to Trillium’s full broker force is planned for late November 2019. The launch of this multi-line interface not only provides automated underwriting at the point of sale, but a sleek look and feel to provide an industry-leading user experience (UX).

Phil Henville, CEO of Hubio commented, “Expanding upon our award-winning Farm digital platform, this upgrade is a revolutionary step in both our technology stack and our UX.  We are confident that our new collabor8 digital platform will enable Trillium to build upon the tremendous success they have cultivated in the Agribusiness Insurance sector.”

We are very excited to offer our Farm products with this solution as it aligns well with our underwriting strategy.

Launching our telematics tracking platform for fleet

Hubio Fleet has been developed working with existing Road Angel Fleet customers to produce a simple, low-cost vehicle tracking solution built on our proven telematics platform. The Hubio Fleet Manager platform is designed to improve driving behaviour, lower the cost of fleet operation, increase productivity and minimise vehicle wear and tear.

Safety is at the forefront of our values and we believe that educating drivers on how to improve their driving style should be simple, non-intrusive and effective. Our driving analytics have been tested and perfected from our experience in insurance to deliver real change so that we can truly improve driver behaviour, one driver at a time.

Hubio Fleet’s reliable vehicle tracking system offers simplicity from day one – an easy plug-and-play OBD device and a simple-to-use interface. Our excellent service and support team are on hand so that fleet managers can immediately unlock the value of live tracking at the best price on the market.

Addressing the needs of the commercial vehicle market

Our Chief Technology Officer for Connected Car, Andrew Betteley spoke directly to fleet managers and owner-operators prior to developing Hubio Fleet. He discovered they were looking for; an easy way to order the unit, a prompt supply, excellent service and a simple-to-use interface. He commented: “With Hubio Fleet, we have addressed all of these issues and have a fleet tracking system that allows fleet managers and owner-operators to truly find ways of operating more efficiently.”

Fleet dashboard overview on iPad

Hubio Fleet is aimed at both small business owners who run a number of cars or vans as well as larger firms with hundreds of vehicles on their books. Two tracking devices are on offer from Hubio Fleet – an OBD plugin that is plugged directly into a vehicle’s on-board diagnostics port (OBD port) by the user and a black box that is professionally fitted and located out of sight.

A fleet manager or owner-operator can see at a glance how ‘safely’ their fleet is performing by looking at a traffic-light-coloured Fleet Safety indicator. As a result of monitoring speed, harsh braking, cornering, and acceleration, a company can benefit from fewer accidents, lower maintenance costs and fuel savings of up to 15%.

As Chief Marketing Officer, Louise Robertson explains: “Ultimately, fleet managers are looking for real-time tracking to improve efficiency and lower their operating costs. Our simple online dashboard, which can be accessed from any web-enabled device, moves the industry closer to changing the perception of fleet management software to a service that is easy to use and fast to implement.”
