B&W enters the telematics Market

The Drive-Pro solution uses a simple to fit ‘blackbox’ that records driving behaviour every five seconds.
B&W Software Enterprises – based in Belfast and London – has entered the telematics business with its Drive-Pro product for insurance companies.

Managing Director Don Murray was responsible for building the acclaimed training, competence and compliance company WorkSmart Solutions and he has now turned his attention to another facet of the insurance industry. The Drive-Pro solution uses a simple to fit ‘blackbox’ that records driving behaviour every five seconds. B&W says the real trick is the analysis of the data and it has carried out extensive tests for the last year.

Don Murray said, “Our objective is to bring driver awareness as well as reporting to the insurance provider, thus giving everyone the option of being treated fairly from a premium perspective. We report on road condition awareness, aggressive driving behaviour and of course speed, one of the biggest causes of accidents. The driver gets a weekly/monthly report and can view his/her progress online.”

Side benefi ts are the ability to recover a vehicle more quickly when a theft occurs and accurate supporting evidence in the event of an accident caused by third parties.

Following in the pattern of his success with WorkSmart, Don aims to make this type  of functionality cost effective for all concerned, bearing in mind the cost of this technology has been prohibitive in the past.
