Ohio Casualty, a Liberty Mutual Agency Markets regional company based in Fairfield, Ohio, reports that its commercial fleets Onboard Advisor is a first-of-its-kind fleet management solution helps companies increase fleet safety and productivity and save on commercial auto insurance premiums.

Onboard Advisor’s real-time vehicle tracking and daily driver reporting capabilities is designed to improve routing and dispatching and help fleet owners reduce expenses on fuel, maintenance and overtime. Businesses can realize immediate savings with Onboard Advisor as there are no upfront fees for the hardware and installation, and only a low monthly per-unit service fee for the fully integrated fleet management solution, reports the company.

“Onboard Advisor puts a fleet manager in the driver’s seat of every vehicle with its performance tracking capabilities,” said Thomas Troy, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Liberty Mutual Agency Markets’ Regional Companies Group, of which Ohio Casualty is one of eight regional companies. “It’s the first GPS-based product to harness multiple technologies to yield direct, measurable savings as well as significant insurance discounts.”

Onboard Advisor’s Insurance Advisor component rewards safe fleet management with an average discount of 15% in the first year with an Ohio Casualty commercial auto policy, and a maximum discount of up to 40% based on fleet performance in renewal years.   The solution is comprised of several tools:

Mobile Advisor is the GPS-based technology that updates a vehicle’s position in real time. For greater efficiency, fleet managers can map and optimize routes as traffic circumstances warrant. Mobile Advisor can also send email alerts about extreme driving or let managers know if a vehicle is driven outside of its designated territory. 

Performance Advisor is the marketplace differentiator, providing a suite of functions not currently available on other GPS fleet systems. This safety component gathers in-depth driver and vehicle data and sends analysis to a fleet manager’s desktop dashboard. Performance Advisor uses onboard sensors to identify unsafe driving and inefficient fuel economy and scores each vehicle. Color-coded icons show exactly what driving behaviors contributed to high, medium, or low risks during all vehicle trips. This allows managers to pinpoint driving behavior and improve safety and fuel efficiency.

“We’ve developed these tools so companies can take an active role in risk management and improve safety on their routes,” said Mike Winner, president and chief executive officer, Ohio Casualty. “When our commercial policyholders strive for consistent safety records, the result is increased cost efficiencies and significant insurance discounts.”

Onboard Advisor’s Fuel Advisor component is a fuel management system that helps businesses monitor and control spending. The no fee fuel card provides up to three cents off every gallon of gas purchased at most major gas stations nationwide. Fuel Advisor monitors expenditures online by capturing driver ID and odometer readings to ensure a company vehicle is being fueled and unapproved purchases are not being made.

Comprehensive online training for Onboard Advisor’s Web tools and reports is included for new customers. An online dashboard lets companies follow the progress of safety scores, fuel efficiency, and their estimated insurance discounts.
