Towers Watson and Hughes Telematics Inc. (HTI), have formed a strategic alliance to provide personal line auto insurers with comprehensive data services for usage-based insurance (UBI) programs.

HTI says that, with the alliance, Towers Watson’s DriveAbility service offering will be powered by HTI’s In-Drive solution. DriveAbility is designed to help insurers convert driving data into industry-applicable metrics, which enables the development of new insurance products and services for consumers. HTI will use its automotive telematics platform to offer enhanced data services and provide the connectivity for additional telematics features.

UBI programs use a self-installed device in the vehicle, says HTI, to collect driving data and provide connected vehicle data services. Drivers can lower their insurance rates based on their driving, and they also gain access to information that will help them improve their driving habits.
