Accident Advisor from TNEDICCA to help Ohio Mutual Insurance Group customers stay safer on the road by avoiding or using extra caution in high-risk areas
COLUMBUS, Ohio and BUCYRUS, Ohio — Nov. 15, 2022 — TNEDICCA®, a leader in traffic crash data and location risk analytics, and Ohio Mutual Insurance Group are collaborating to provide a unique view into crash hotspots, locations where frequent crashes occur, to Ohio Mutual’s Ohio members. The Accident Advisor solution is powered by TNEDICCA’s proprietary crash database of more than 30 million crashes, based on police reports and geolocated to the precise location of the crash. Via a map, Ohio Mutual’s members can identify local crash hotspots specific to their home and commuting area. This insight can help policyholders stay safer on the road by avoiding accident hotspots or exercising additional caution in these high-risk areas.
“This safety solution introduces the concept of risk reduction to an auto insurance industry where the focus has previously been on accurate risk assessment,” said Yiem Sunbhanich, co-founder and CEO of TNEDICCA. “This innovation is near and dear to our core mission to reduce traffic accidents. This collaboration will allow us to learn from customer feedback to further improve the current solution, as well as to create future road safety solutions.”
Traditionally, auto insurance companies use measurements such as TNEDICCA’s Location Risk Score to assess risk and improve pricing models. Accident Advisor is an innovative use of this powerful crash data that empowers drivers to reduce risk on the road and improve safety.
“We are excited to provide this solution to our Ohio members and look forward to expanding this tool to other states soon,” said Chad Combs, Vice President of Personal Lines Underwriting at Ohio Mutual Insurance Group. “We are continuously looking for innovative ways to provide value to our loyal members and want to provide them with the best tools to stay safe on the road.”
