Verisk and Ford partner to offer connected car data in Europe

Verisk announced an agreement with Ford Motor Company to offer standardized, insurance-ready telematics data from connected Ford vehicles in Europe. This service will be available in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

With drivers’ consent, insurers will be able to access metrics that Verisk generates from connected Ford vehicles at any part of the customer journey, including the point of quote.

The agreement between Ford and Verisk in Europe follows a similar agreement between the two companies in the United States announced last year.

“We are delighted to extend our agreement with Verisk into Europe. Through their innovative analytics solutions, we are able to make sure that our customers receive the most accurate and budget-friendly insurance plan options, rewarding safe driving behaviour.” – Mark Harvey, director of business operations, Enterprise Connectivity, Ford of Europe.

“Verisk has pioneered the use of data from connected cars for insurance, helping thousands of drivers receive insurance that is tailored to their driving. Through our agreement with Ford, we’re expanding our telematics solutions into Europe and helping bring innovative products to a broader market of safety-conscious drivers.” – Joe Wodark, General Manager of Telematics, Verisk.
