DriveFactor to Present at European Insurance Telematics Summit on March 18th

Founder and CEO, Steve McKay, Will Deliver a Presentation entitled, "Who's ahead? US vs. UK" at 15:55 GMT

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DriveFactor, a trusted source for driving data and analytics, today announced that Founder and CEO, Steve McKay, will speak at the Insurance Telematics Summit in London on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 15:55 GMT.

McKay will be presenting during the fourth session which is focused on adding value to the telematics proposition and the role of technology. McKay's presentation, entitled "Who's ahead? US vs. UK" will highlight how insurers, even with the most advanced programs, have shifted their focus from technology and scoring to value proposition, distribution, and advertising―where the battle ultimately will be won or lost. He will review the evolution of messaging and media, what has worked and what hasn't.

"Different approaches to consumers lead to different choices of technology and analysis," said McKay. "This will create a highly segmented, low cost, broad market future. It is remarkable how differently the United States and the United Kingdom have developed usage based insurance and how much they can learn from each other. Putting the two together tells a compelling story about what can happen next and who will emerge as the leaders in each country."

Hosted by Marketforce, the Insurance Telematics Summit is being held at Jumeirah Carlton Tower in London, UK on March 18, 2013. The conference will bring together leaders in the UK motor insurance market to discuss the next steps for usage-based insurance―from dynamic pricing to effective marketing strategies.
