The real-time safety guidance also includes nudges for safer speeds based on traffic predictions and warnings on accident-prone zones.
Further, “Like most other telematics applications, Kruzr also calculates a risk score for drivers that can be used in insurer pricing, risk models and reward offerings,” Gartner says.

According to the report, “Business ecosystems can help insurance companies deliver net new digital products and services. Vendors recognized in this research are known to target ever more specific parts of the insurance value chain to enable insurance companies to extend their reach beyond traditional insurance models.”

We partner with Insurers, Automobile OEMs, and Fleets to make our roads safer. This recognition is a strong validation of our vision for the insurance industry,” says Pallav Singh, CEO of Kruzr.
Started by Pallav and Ayan, Kruzr is based out of California, USA, Munich, Germany, as well as Bangalore, India.
