Westfield Insurance Announces New Partnership with Lytx DriveCam Safety Program
WESTFIELD CENTER, Ohio, February 6, 2017 - Westfield Insurance, a super-regional, customer-focused insurance carrier, announces a new partnership to help customers improve fleet driver safety.
Westfield has selected Lytx, the global leader in video telematics, as its exclusive video safety partner to offer several programs to Special Risk trucking customers to help improve driver safety. The best-in-class DriveCam® exception-based video safety program combines video captured of road incidents such as hard breaking or sudden swerving, data analytics of those incidents, and personalized coaching insights to improve driver behavior. Today, Lytx helps protect more than 650,000 commercial and government fleet drivers under its DriveCam Program.
"Helping our customers mitigate risk is a top priority at Westfield," said Mike Scibetta, Westfield’s Special Risk Division Leader. "The trucking industry is faced with many challenges. The DriveCam program is a comprehensive safety solution that helps measurably improve safe driving performance and fleet safety while also helping to mitigate claims."
"The Lytx DriveCam safety program is the gold standard in video telematics, and can reduce collision-related claims costs by up to 80 percent," said Lytx Senior Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development, Eliot Feldstein. "Lytx is pleased to be selected by Westfield to provide the best opportunity for their insured fleets to operate safely, reduce collisions, and save money on claims."
Scibetta said Westfield looks forward to providing this service to help their customers save money by reducing claims costs. The program provides a coaching workflow with the driving event video clips to focus coaching efforts on those behaviors that are contributing to risk. The result is safer drivers and safer roads.
