Plymouth-based Securi-Guard Monitoring’s reputation as one of the UK’s leading security monitoringcompanies has been further enhanced following a contract award from innovative ‘pay-as-you go’ car insurance provider insurethebox.
An NSI Gold accredited company, Securi-Guard will monitor the telematics tracking device fitted to the cars of future policyholders with insurethebox, which saves the motorist money – and protects their vehicle against theft.
Slightly bigger than a mobile phone, the so-called ‘Clear Box’ measures a motorist’s driving performance and distance travelled. The lower the mileage and the safer the driver, the cheaper the insurance.
But what gives the Clear Box added value is that it also acts as a tracking device so if the vehicle is stolen its position can be pinpointed by Securi-Guard’s operations room staff, who can then help police locate it, normally within 24 hours.
“We looked for a partner that was flexible and willing to work with us, as well as obviously having the expertise and capabilities to deliver a high quality monitoring service for our policy holders,” said Andrea Natali, Telematics Project Leader at insurethebox.
“I am delighted to say that Securi-Guard was able to demonstrate the necessary criteria to meet all our needs in terms of this contract.”
Pete Stanley, Head of Telematics for Securi-Guard said the contract award was another example of the security company’s ability to supply bespoke services and be flexible to an individual client’s needs.
“This is not just about providing monitoring services, it is so much more than that,” said Pete.
“It is about working day to day with clients to really understand their business model and what they are trying to achieve, so we can play our part in helping them get there.”
Securi-Guard will help support insurethebox’s stolen vehicle recovery service. If a customer’s vehicle is stolen they obtain a Crime Reference Number (CRN) from the police and pass it on to insurethebox, who then alert Securi-Guard’s monitoring team.
From its award winning NSI Gold CAT ll Alarm Receiving Centre at Estover, Securi-Guard will then locate the car thanks to the technology installed in the ‘Clear Box’ unit.
Securi-Guard already has a long established track record for Europe wide vehicle tracking services for a number of respected industry clients, as well as the monitoring of intruder alarms, CCTV and lone worker devices – all to NSI gold standard.
Insurethebox is setting new standards in providing low cost, high quality telematics based car insurance provision, which according to recent statistics is giving motorists an average saving of £601 per policy.
Since its launch in 2010 it has grown to be the biggest telematics player in the market with 150,000 customers, accounting for at least 75 per cent of monthly telematics sales, making it a highly prestigious contract for Securi-Guard’s monitoring service to secure.
