USAA Announces Collaboration with Honda
USAA announced a collaboration with Honda and ConnectedTravel, a connected vehicle platform and application services company, to develop a safety coaching application for the automaker’s driver program – Honda Dream Drive. The USAA-branded driver coach feature will include a rewards platform to incentivize safe-driving behavior within the app, along with a dashboard view of the driver’s scores across key safe-driving categories, which will allow the driver to drill down into specific areas to improve his/her driving score.
Honda Dream Drive is the automotive industry’s “first integrated driver and passenger infotainment, commerce, services and rewards dashboards” within the vehicle environment. First shown as a concept at CES 2017, Honda Dream Drive has evolved to offer drivers and passengers a broad range of convenient services and engaging entertainment options, while minimizing the potential for driver distraction.
“USAA looks forward to assisting Honda in developing a safety coaching application for their Honda Dream Drive program. Our long history promoting driver safety and developing safe driving programs will enhance Honda’s in-vehicle experience. USAA cares deeply about roadway safety and believes that collaborations of this type can greatly increase safe driving behaviors.” – General Manager, USAA Auto Insurance, Randy Termeer.
Bottom Line: We said it – insurance is most convenient when integrated with other products or services.
