Evolving technologies and data revolution in the auto sector have always sought to make the lives of consumers convenient and hassle-free. One such solution that challenges the concept of a flat rate for auto insurance, irrespective of how consumers drive, is usage-based insurance, that puts the focus on personalized offerings. In an attempt to assist policyholders ration their car insurance expenses, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, UBI gained symbolic recognition.
The industry, however, saw suppressed energy in the number of solutions available to end-users around UBI. A study from The Zebra suggests 40% of US drivers are unaware of the core principles behind UBI, but as much as 62% believe that pricing insurance based on how they drive is fair, suggesting positive inclination.
Transition From Conventional Auto Insurance
While there is a significant demand for the model, the industry’s opinion on the restricted acceptance of UBI could be due to an underdeveloped ecosystem and technology infrastructure. Newcomers in the auto insurance industry and conventional players looking to adopt the UBI model often face issues, like:
Reluctance in investing in the prerequisite infrastructure, both in terms of technology as well as skilled talent, apart from the cost of installing telematics devices in customers’ vehicles, which add to high initial expenses.
Adding to the technology-centric approach, the UBI model further requires insurance companies to appropriately monitor, capture and transfer device-sourced data, and storing it with optimum privacy to run analytics, which costs money and efforts, risking the overall profitability.
Once insurers manage to cope with the challenges and enter the UBI game, chances are they’ll have a hard time staying on par with the right quantity and quality of data, without compromising the bottom line. What’s more, the analysis of such limited data will yield less benefit to both the driver and the insurer.
Value-Driven Collaboration to Enrich Your Business Solutions
CerebrumX offers a remarkable solution to the challenges faced by auto insurers looking to adopt the UBI model by utilizing the power behind connected vehicle data, through its proprietary and industry’s first AI-driven Augmented Deep Learning Platform (ADLP). This data, collected form millions of vehicles over innumerable trips, helps organizations better understand mobility trends, while simultaneously planning, underwriting and rolling-out comprehensive usage-based insurance plans.
Vehicle Sourced Mobility Data over Aftermarket Solutions

For instance, with data expressing a customer’s driver behavior, insurers can either offer discounts or hike up the insurance premium, so that the policyholder can reflect and improve the driving skills. Auto insurers can then lead to offer interactive models, such as PAYD or PHYD, which not only enhance driver safety but also contribute to a sustainable future.
