Horace Mann and Cambridge Mobile Telematics to Bring Safe Driving App to Educators

Sponsored by Businesswire

Illinois-based insurer Horace Mann has partnered with Cambridge
Mobile Telematics
(CMT) to launch HMDrive, a safe driving mobile
application for educators.

HMDrive provides feedback to drivers at a historical and trip-level
basis. It records and scores trips based on driving behaviors like
speeding, hard-braking, cornering, phone distraction, and harsh
acceleration. Drivers receive personalized dashboards, score trends,
trip details and personalized driving tips. Drivers also compete for
spots on city, state and school district leaderboards.

“At Horace Mann, we are dedicated to providing solutions for educators
at each stage of their lives,” said Bill Caldwell, Executive Vice
President of Property & Casualty at Horace Mann, the nation’s largest
financial services company focused on providing insurance and retirement
solutions for the education market. “Distracted driving is increasingly
a factor in accidents, and affects drivers nationwide. Our partnership
with Cambridge Mobile Telematics allows us to provide a powerful tool in
HMDrive to our educator customers that leverages CMT’s proven method to
influence driving behavior, leading to safer roads in communities across
the county.”

Horace Mann plans to make the HMDrive application available to educators
in select areas of the country in support of its continued efforts to
address distracted driving and promote safe driving behaviors.

For CMT, the world’s largest smartphone telematics provider, its
partnership with Horace Mann aligns with its larger mission to teach
safe driving behaviors through engagement and behavioral insights. CMT’s
underlying technology, which HMDrive is built upon, has shown success in
changing driver behavior, specifically a 35% reduction in phone
distraction, 20% reduction in hard-braking, and 20% reduction in
speeding within 30 days of using the technology.

“Education is the foundation upon which quality of life is constructed,”
said Dennis Frawley, CMT’s Vice President of Global Sales and Strategic
Development. “Horace Mann protects the futures of those who take care of
our children’s futures. Working together with Horace Mann allows us to
empower those who have a unique potential to influence the next
generation of drivers.”
