How much savings can be realized for my fleet?
Prior to making any change in your insurance set-up, an assessment of the "as is" is required. We offer various tools, at affordable pricing and sometimes even for free, to understand and quantify potential improvements. Based on a first assessment, we'll be able to share with you a business case, appropriate for your company and compatible with your organisation.
The business case will give you insight in cost versus benefits and re/confirmation of the available insurance optimization strategies.
You are in the driving seat, but we will give you the tools to decide on optimization strategies such as unbundling, self-insurance, agreements with body repair networks and driver influencing.
Based on 20+ years’ experience in the fleet insurance market, we offer a number of products that provide insight into the specific savings for a fleet:
Benchmark: our Experts rely on a catalog of best practice and benchmark data base of 4 million vehicles across the world

Insurance Maturity Test
Whether you lease your company cars or buy them, you’re bound to end up with different types of coverage depending on the supplier or the location of your cars. In reality, it’s possible, even likely, that not all your employees are insured in the same way against the same risks.
This self-test is designed to help you. 14 qualitative questions will guide you through the different areas of car insurance that offer potentially a better coverage, more ownership, increased savings and eventually a better protection of your employees.
Once the questionnaire finished, your fleet will receive a scoring. A high score means that your fleet has reached a high level of maturity, a low score implies that there are still many areas left to intervene and make a difference.
You can also compare the insurance maturity of several fleets. The Insurance Maturity Test will calculate for you where your intervention is most necessary and which topics need to be tackled first.
Enjoy the Insurance Maturity Test!
