Idelic | January 19, 2023
Idelic Inc. recently announced the launch of Idelic Insurance Agency, LLC, a technology-driven managing general agent (MGA) aimed at providing commercial fleets with tailored insurance coverage. The insurance pricing will reflect the fleets’ risk improvement by using the Idelic Program, a comprehensive approach to improving driver safety and reducing crashes.
Idelic Insurance Agency also aims to provide a modern approach to improving insurance outcomes by allowing fleets to use technology and processes to reduce losses. The insurance agency will price renewals based on the fleets’ successful adoption and results.
The Idelic Program consists of two major components: Safety Suite® and Driver Safety Playbook. Safety Suite® is the best driver performance management platform in the trucking industry. It collects driver risk data and uses machine learning algorithms to identify high-risk drivers. Meanwhile, the Driver Safety Playbook is an excellent guide to engaging drivers, providing coaching and step-by-step professional development plans made by working with insurers and trucking's safest fleets.
On average, fleets utilizing Idelic Program can witness a 20% decrease in preventable crashes in the first year.
"Commercial auto fleet insurance is inherently complex with a multitude of nuances from fleet to fleet. The process of evaluating risks has traditionally relied on underwriter experience and judgment, but insurers are increasingly looking for a more data-driven way to evaluate risks. Idelic Insurance Agency will do just that," stated Michael Gramm, Senior Vice President of Insurance at Idelic Insurance Agency. "By working closely with fleets that choose to use the Idelic Program, we can better leverage critical driver behavior data to quote policies that reflect their reduced crash risk," he added.

However, fleet insurance costs and availability are once again among the Top 10 motor carrier executive concerns listed by American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI).
