Implementing the solution

How do I choose the best telematics vendor from your panel?

We will work with you to identify your business needs and then help you choose the most appropriate vendor from the telematics panel. Zurich does not receive any fee or commission from these vendors for selecting their telematics services.

How does the installation process work?

All telematics equipment installation work is carried out by independent third party professional installers from the telematics vendor who you will contract with directly.

Will I receive a discounted rate from Zurich's selected vendors for the telematics hardware and monthly service charge?

We have arranged for discounts from a number of our panel telematics vendors on some or all of the installation, hardware and monthly service charges and with this discount, you will likely pay below the telematics vendor's standard rates for these items.

Do I need any special software or computer hardware to access the reporting suite or development tools?

No, you do not. Zurich Fleet Intelligence's reporting and development tools run on Internet Explorer 6 or newer, or Firefox.

Will Zurich be monitoring my drivers or looking at our reporting data?

No, Zurich will not be monitoring your individual drivers. However, if you provide the telematics / data reporting vendor with consent to share your vehicle level data with us, then we can provide our enhanced reporting and analysis suite to you.

What happens if I need help after implementation?

Full post installation support for the telematics equipment will be available directly from the telematics vendor that you contract with. Most vendors provide support including advice and help with any technical questions.
