Greater Than now enters the Irish market by entering a partnership with Zurich Insurance UK and Sixt Ireland. With a common goal to increase safety and driver influence in the car rental industry, the partners will implement Greater Than’s AI-based, digital risk assessment platform on the entire Sixt car fleet on Ireland – giving more than 3500 vehicles a new, user-based management tool.
The partnership makes way for Zurich Insurance and car rental company Sixt on Ireland to integrate a user-based, digital risk assessment and fleet management solution on the entire Irish Sixt fleet. For Sixt customers the system aims to increase safety and reward a safe driving behavior, which is possible through technology from Greater Than that uses AI, machine learning and Big Data to calculate and price risk in real-time.
“We are continuously looking for innovative solutions that can enhance our business processes, and this AI-based tech platform is of great value for that advancement. Influencing drivers to drive safer is essential to us and this is another good example of thinking outside the box”, says Darren Stoddart, Senior Underwriter, Emerging Motor Risks at Zurich Insurance.
Zurich Insurance is one of the world’s leading multi-insurers that operates in more than 170 countries. The client Sixt Ireland is a part of the global Sixt Group, who provides high-quality mobile services in more than 2100 stations across the globe, managing a total fleet of more than 238 000 vehicles.
AI-based technology going global
Greater Than and its AI-based platform Enerfy offers real-time risk profiling and individual premium pricing for auto insurance. The growing company has established several insurance solutions in Northern Europe and Asia, while recently also entering a partnership with the global organization FIA, Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile, to create a new global competition, FIA Smart Driving Challenge.
“Joining forces with three major partners like Zurich, Sixt and Marsh demonstrates that our strategy to establish global presence is underway. This is a large step on our path towards international expansion” says Liselott Johansson, CEO at Greater Than.
The partnership was managed by Marsh, one of the global leaders in insurance broking and risk management with operations in more than 130 countries.
