GLONASS Union and R-telematica JSC will develop services for insurance companies and motor manufacturers
The federal network operator in the sphere of navigation GLONASS Union and the company R-telematica, a developer, integrator and telematic services operator, announce the start of their collaboration. The collaboration agreement in the sphere of development and promotion of telematic services and geoinformational technologies in Russia and abroad was signed by the director general of R-telematica JSC Dmitriy Bakutin and the president of GLONASS Union Alexander Gurko.
Under the terms of the signed agreement the parties have agreed upon a joint participation in the creation of products and services for insurance companies and motor manufacturers within the frame of the smart insurance technologies development.
The partners have developed the main collaboration directions including the data exchange and the mutual expert support in the questions of insurance telematics. The parties are also planning to explore a possibility of developing and implementing the telematic services and geoinformational technologies with the use of the ERA-GLONASS system infrastructure.
The purpose of the collaboration is to create a system of mutually beneficial mechanisms for promotion of the telematic services on the territory of Russia and foreign countries.
“Compared to European countries and the USA, where the telematic services are used everywhere, the telematics in Russia has appeared quite recently and is still gaining momentum. The R-telematica and GLONASS Union collaboration will allow to consolidate the organizational, technologic and intellectual resources of the companies for the purpose of design and implementation of new telematics decisions, development and popularization of telematics in Russia, - comments the director of R-telematica Dmitriy Bakutin. – The joining of the efforts will create a favorable base for further development of the safe driving assessment technology and the dynamic assessment of road accidents in Russia”.
ERA-GLONASS is the only system that is compulsory for the installation in the vehicles of all categories. In these conditions a customer has a choice whether to use a basic terminal with no additional services or to extend its functions and complete several tasks. Our collaboration with one of the most important Russian telematics market players R-telematica does not only allow to extend the functionality of the device with handy and useful for final consumer telematic services, including smart insurance, but will also help solve the main ERA-GLONASS problem, that is to increase the drivers’ and passengers’ safety on the roads of our country”, points out the president of GLONASS Union Alexander Gurko.
