Discover Tunisia's first smartphone telematics program
Paris, 17 July 2023,
Through the STARCONNECT programme, STAR Assurances aims to make Tunisian drivers more aware of the dangers of the road. All-risk policyholders can download the STARCONNECT application today to benefit from DriveQuant's driving analysis service.
After each journey, the application shows users three scores representative of their driving style:
- a safety score
- an eco-driving score
- a distraction score.
STAR Assurances will be organizing regular driving challenges on the theme of distraction and eco-driving. Several statistical studies by DriveQuant show that (1) the challenges lead to a 25% reduction in phone distraction, and (2) eco-drivers are also the safest drivers. Therefore, through the STARCONNECT programme, STAR Assurances is giving itself the means to act on the road risk faced by Tunisian motorists.
Users of the STARCONNECT application who have not made a claim during their contract year will see their No-Claims Bonus (NCB) premium doubled. This represents a cashback of 15%.
"Beyond our desire to innovate and modernise, our ambition, as a socially responsible company, is to support our customers and ensure their safety. STARCONNECT is a first in the Tunisian insurance market, and we are proud to be the first to offer this solution to our policyholders. We naturally chose DriveQuant, the French and European leader in telematics, as our partner in order to offer our customers the best possible service." Mehdi Masmoudi, Star Assurances IT & Finance Director.
"The whole team is very proud to be working with Tunisia's leading motor insurer as it digitalizes its products and services. The STARCONNECT programme is ambitious and represents the first step in our development in North Africa." Philippe Moulin, DriveQuant CEO.
