The Co-operative Insurance and e-merge safer drivers are proud to announce that our e-pac driver behaviour modules have scooped first place in the Data and Technology Awards for Insurance for "best telematics based project 2015".

The use of e-merge's e-pac behavioural change modules since January 2015 by the Co-operative Insurance secured the headline award of best telematics based project of 2015 which was held at Altitude 360, Westminster's tallest building.

Chris Morley, COO at e-merge safer drivers Ltd comments:

"We are incredibly proud to receive this fantastic award with our charter client, the Co-operative Insurance. We developed e-pac, the next step in telematics, to help make young drivers safer on the roads. This award is clear evidence that by working closely with insurers and young drivers, we can influence driver behaviour to improve driving scores, reduce risk and loss ratios and ultimately make our roads safer."

Steve Kerrigan, Head of Telematics at the Co-operative Insurance says:

"We are committed to improving driving behaviours and making the UK roads safer and are delighted to win this award and for the recognition."    

Jeremy Williamson, CEO at e-merge says:

" This is fantastic recognition for the hard work and dedication of the Co-operative Insurance Young Driver Team, Wunelli and e-merge safer drivers Ltd."

Jeremy adds:

" To achieve this prestigious award within 12 months of launching is incredible and shows that engaging with young driver customers at the right time and in the right way, can really make a difference. To receive this news as we are busy with National Road Safety Week is particularly poignant!"

e-merge has seen some exciting product evolution over the last six months and is really looking forward to continuing to share the outcomes with The Co-operative on the back of this significant joint success."

Editors notes:

The Co-operative and e-merge have been picked out for this insurance industry award for their combined efforts to tackle an issue that is considered a national priority, namely reducing the casualty levels amongst young drivers on British roads.

They have achieved their success by taking telematics from something that was previously largely a measurement and monitoring tool, to something that encourages behavioural change through the engaging training modules designed by e-merge and called e-pac (electronic performance assessment constructivist) that align to telematics feedback data."
