Company Aims to Transform Vehicle Collisions into IoT Intelligence
May 25, 2017—CalAmp, a company committed to providing Internet of Things (IoT) enablement solutions, announced the availability of new capabilities for its CrashBoxx vehicle risk management system, which aims to enable insurers, fleet managers and vehicle repair centers to leverage the enhanced capability of CrashBoxx to reliably provide automated accident reconstruction and predictive vehicle damage assessments.
CrashBoxx is a vehicle risk management service that provides businesses with actionable insights into crash events in near real-time. The two new CrashBoxx service options are:
- CrashBoxx with accident reconstruction provides detailed analysis of a collision within minutes of the event such as force of the crash, direction of impact, speed prior to impact and other key metrics to automate loss recovery; and
- CrashBoxx with predictive physical damage helps determine in near real-time whether the vehicle is a total loss or repairable. Predictive auto physical damage improves in-field vehicle triage and enables customers to avoid costs associated with unnecessary towing and storage.
"Connected vehicle technology is making great strides in encouraging safer driving, but the impacts of crash events have far-reaching implications for drivers and businesses," said Justin Schmid, senior vice president and general manager of CalAmp's telematics systems business. "CrashBoxx is unparalleled in aftermarket vehicle risk management and our new automated accident reconstruction and predictive vehicle damage capabilities empower insurers, fleet owners and vehicle repair centers with actionable intelligence to expedite the repair process, improve third party recovery and mitigate fraud."
Customers from a wide range of industries will realize efficiency, productivity and customer service benefits with detailed analyses of crash incidents from CrashBoxx. The new CrashBoxx services create valuable opportunities for improving the repair and recovery process and mitigating the business impact of a crash by unlocking potential opportunities to drive customers involved in accidents to participating partners for repair, parts, maintenance or new car purchases.
