AXA offers Brightmile app to fleets
AXA Insurance is offering Brightmile's telematics app to its fleet customers as a way of supporting safe driving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

- The app monitors vehicle speeds, journey durations and phone distractions
- Set up and managed remotely, the risk management solution is compatible with social distancing
The motor insurer and the tech start-up are partnering on a smartphone telematics solution for fleets.
Since the UK government ordered movement restrictions, key workers can still commute and vehicles providing essential services are still allowed on the roads. These services include food delivery, medicine distribution, charity work, gas, electricity and water provision, and other crucial activities.
The Brightmile smartphone solution can be deployed and managed totally remotely, without any physical contact, and focuses on certain key areas of risk exposure which persist despite the crisis. Even though road traffic has reduced, police forces have seen a number of drivers driving at very high speeds and dangerously.
"The coronavirus lockdown hasn't removed all road dangers. In these trying times, drivers who are delivering essential services need to keep safe. We want to show them we value their contribution to society and we want to help them stay safe. We hope this app and the associated services will make a difference to their wellbeing."
