Insurance companies gain comprehensive end-to-end platform to manage customer value chain powered by an all-new wireless network
HIMEX today announced that it has signed a five-year agreement with Sprint (NYSE: S) as the preferred CDMA carrier to wirelessly enable and support HIMEX Usage-Based Insurance (UBI) and telematics solutions.
“As a company founded on innovation and excellence, HIMEX is excited to work with Sprint to deliver an unbeatable collaborative offering to the insurance industry,” said Neil Fishenden-SVP business development, HIMEX.
“We chose Sprint as our CDMA carrier partner providing us with a common infrastructure across personal and commercial lines. Sprint’s investment in its all-new 3G and 4G LTE network, along with their commitment to maintaining 2G service, has led us to jointly deliver insurers with flexible and scalable solutions to meet the demands of an increasingly data-reliant industry today and in the future.”
HIMEX’s UBI 3D(TM) platform offers the fastest and most complete route in the industry to the implementation of usage-based insurance. The HIMEX Platform covers the entire UBI Value Chain; devices, product platform, systems integration, logistics, mobile apps, data management and analytics; and supports the full range of insurance company transactions from quoting and sales through first notice of loss and claims settlement. Combining HIMEX’s unique UBI 3D(TM) game-based platform with the power of Sprint’s world-class wireless data network and M2M network infrastructure, HIMEX now delivers insurance organizations the most effective UBI solution available with the highest level of customer service and support. “Knowing that Sprint is consistently ranked among the highest in customer experience and care was essential to our decision to partner with them,” Fishenden added.
“Working with HIMEX to deliver complete, end-to-end UBI solutions to insurance companies is just one more way we’re leveraging our insurance and telematics expertise while extending the value of our network,” said Kimberly Green-Kerr-regional vice president, Sprint.
“Sprint is continually improving the speed and quality of our wireless footprint as part of our nationwide Network Vision build out which is transforming mission critical business applications that used to run on fixed computer terminals. Now those same transactions are conducted via cell phones and tablets by customers and agents on the go, while remotely connected machines monitor and maintain a variety of functions.”
