Matteo Carbone, director and founder of the Observatory, said, “Over the seven annual editions of the Observatory I’ve seen maturing the literacy of the sector about the usage of IoT data, and also different players moving from pilots to successful programs. The focus on applying the IoT paradigm to commercial lines has increased year after year. Our research has highlighted how some commercial auto carriers have already obtained relevant positive return on their telematics investments. Azuga supports the largest commercial insurance telematics program in production today. With their clear industry leadership, I am thrilled to welcome Azuga into this esteemed organization.”
