Nationwide is our top choice if you’re a business owner who uses rental vehicles, especially trucks and fleets, for your day-to-day operations. Whether you’re using your personal car, a truck, or a fleet of trucks, it’s important to be prepared in the event of an accident and to help encourage safer driving habits from your drivers. Nationwide offers a variety of solutions, like the Vantage 360 Fleet program, that can help encourage safer driving habits and enable you to reduce the chance of an accident.
Fleet Tracking Incentive
Nationwide’s Vantage 360 Fleet program is a great way to save more on your insurance, encourage safe driving, and keep track of your drivers and rentals. Vantage 360 Fleet is a telematics program that requires you to give Nationwide access to the telematics tag in your rentals to collect fleet data and track your vehicles.
You can earn up to 10 percent off your commercial car insurance premiums by signing up for Vantage 360 Fleet, and your drivers can accrue reward points for safe driving that they can redeem as gift cards.
Nearly 75 percent of drivers who used telematics apps had 47 percent fewer claims and 49 percent less severe claims.3
Great App Monitoring System
As a business owner, you can use Nationwide’s app monitoring system to track your rental mileage, optimize your routes, and analyze your drivers’ trends. We accessed both the mobile app and web portal, which showed us different aspects of the fleet center. The app had options for us to look at:
Through the web portal, we gained deeper analysis into route optimization suggestions, driver scores, trip histories, and live status reports of drivers. Both platforms were easy to use; gave us key insurance-related and business insights, like driver efficiency and route optimization; and helped simplify fleet management into a seamless user experience.
