Digi Partners with AXA for Road Safety Initiative
Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd has officially launched ‘Digi Connected Cars with AXA FlexiDrive’, an initiative to encourages Malaysian to drive safely on the roads and rewarding them for their good driving behaviour. This initiative is the first in Malaysia to help drivers of insured vehicles learn and better understand their driving behaviours through the AXA FlexiDrive telematics security device and the AXA FlexiDrive mobile app.
With Digi Connected Cars with AXA FlexiDrive, safe drivers can earn up to 20% safe driving discount, based on speed, mileage and driving style in addition to other benefits such as automatic accident alert and assistance and 24/7 vehicle security and theft recovery, all this at no additional premium.
Digi’s Chief Digital Officer Praveen Rajan champions this initiative as a way of Digi strengthening its foray in IoT (Internet of Things) with a comprehensive Connected Vehicles strategy. “Connected Cars with AXA FlexiDrive is part of our strategy to offer a spectrum of solutions for private vehicles and insurance providers. This is in line with our effort to connect Malaysians to what matters most – which in this case, is to keep themselves and loved ones safe on the road,” he said.
Praveen stated that this partnership with AXA Affin General Insurance will allow Digi to reach a wider audience by offering digital solutions that will provide better value for their customers and all Malaysians.
AXA Affin General Insurance Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Nivet also adds, “Road safety is a serious matter and we want to keep everybody safe. AXA FlexiDrive was conceptualised with Malaysians in mind, and we hope we are able to reach more Malaysians and incentivise them to make smarter decisions on the road with it.”
AXA FlexiDrive’s official telematics partner is CSE (Communications, Security & Electronics) Group, a local market leading Telematics products and services provider to the Automotive, Fleet and Insurance industries. Back in July, the product was awarded the New Insurance Product of the Year – Malaysia award at the Asian Banking and Finance Insurance Asia Awards 2018.
