Mobile Devices takes the lead in telematics technology provider race: PTOLEMUS study


UK: The Insurance Telematics study  by PTOLEMUS has ranked Mobile Devices as the no. 1 black box telematics technology provider for the European and North American markets, in a list of 21 global providers.

In terms of customer segments, Mobile Devices also ranked first in Europe for Personal Lines, first in the US for Commercial lines and first in “other Continents” for Commercial Lines.

The ranking of the key suppliers is one of the findings of the 400-page strategic study, which highlights a number of important lessons for the insurance sector.

The hardware used to enable PAYD is only one of the key links in a long chain. But in this burgeoning market, Mobile Device’s C4 OBD2 Dongle has upstaged the competition.
Reasons include:

  • Mobile Devices’ 10-years of experience in the domain of telematics and its financial stability;
  •  The C4 geographic range of adoption; today, C4 devices can be found in more than 40 countries;
  •  The constant innovation that has permitted Mobile Devices to stay at the forefront of the industry and be the only player providing an open, OS based telematics platform;
  •  Morpheus 3 Open Telematics Platform allowing insurance players to start with the basic location-based assessment and upgrade their services all the way to full driver scoring without touching the device.

According to Frederic Bruneteau, Founder & Managing Director of PTOLEMUS, stated that  “This flexibility, offered to the service providers at a time when so many are running trials to test the validity and attractiveness of their offers, was a critical factor in Mobile Devices’ ranking.”
