Exigen Services, Baseline Telematics Partner

The goal is for Exigen to help Baseline ease into new markets and gain new clients for its turnkey telematics-powered usage-based insurance program.

Exigen Services has announced a partnership with Baseline Telematics, a Laval, Quebec-based company that powers the Mobiliz usage-based insurance program from Industrial Alliance Auto and Home Insurance.

Exigen will help Baseline meet regulatory, marketing and distribution requirements as it markets its telematics insurance product in new markets.

Like many newer usage-based insurance programs, the one Baseline provides is powered by an in-car device that measures GPS location, mileage, speed, sudden acceleration and sudden braking to rating servers, enabling real time monthly rating and driver feedback via smartphone app.
