Unipol’s commitment to the advancing the mobility ecosystem
Unipol is the largest Italian non-life and motor insurer with over 9 million motor vehicle policies. It has been the pioneer of black boxes in Italy ever since it first used Unibox in 2004, the first black box on a motor vehicle and one of the first examples of the development of telematics in the insurance sector.
Since then, Unipol continues to invest in innovation and has firmly maintained the market leadership for these kind of devices in Italy, where the company holds approximately a 50% market share of telematics insurance, and also at European level.
Unipol is able to contribute to safer mobility and implement the quick and effective management of claims to the benefit of the company, customers (eg greater safety and assistance and kilometre rates) and the community (e.g. fraud prevention).
The use of telematics provides the company with big data on mobility behaviour, which can be used in partnership with public actors to promote sustainable development models for cities based on the innovative use of IoT.
In the mobility ecosystem, Unipol stands out for having internalised roadside assistance, maintenance services and the direct repair of damages (Auto Presto&Bene and MyGlass), meaning that it supports customers by fixing and not just compensating the damages suffered. More recently, Unipol expanded its proposal for the motor segment, again supporting the circular economy, through its presence on the long-term rental market and the acquisition of an online platform for used car sales.
