Octo Telematics, the global leader of advanced telematics systems and services to the automotive and insurance industries, invites insurance professionals to join them as they attend and sponsor the NAMIC Annual Convention, September 27-30 in San Diego. Recently having surpassed the one million UBI-user mark in North America, Octo Telematics will provide the opportunity for select conference attendees to try its award-winning telematics device, Try&Drive™.

Octo recently demonstrated Try&Drive, a plug-and-play insurance telematics solution for insurance carriers, at Insurance Telematics USA Conference 2015. “Based on the recent high demand to test Try&Drive from the Insurance Telematics Conference attendees, we decided to extend the program to the NAMIC audience as well,” said Nino Tarantino, CEO, Octo Telematics North America.

Select attendees will receive the Try&Drive product for free, earning an opportunity to test the product and have their driving monitored and scored. The safest driver during a 30-day period, as identified by the demo’s scoring system, will win an iPad from Octo Telematics. Based on Octo’s award-winning telematics platform, Try&Drive is a UBI in a box solution, designed to help insurers quickly and affordably launch UBI programs. The turnkey product alleviates many of the challenges associated with creating an insurance telematics program from the ground up, enabling insurance companies to focus on their core business and avoid the hassles of managing UBI design and implementation.
