Xemplar And JMP Africa Partner To Offer Car Insights And Insurance To The Zimbabwean Market

Move over Car Track and Econet Connected car, we have a new player in the game JMP Africa. Their car insights offering ( think something along the lines of Google Analytics here but for cars) allows car owners, including private and public vehicle owners, the ability to manage and track their vehicles or fleet in minute detail.

Much like with Econet’s services however JMP Africa and Xemplar’s services extend beyond vehicle tracking to include insurance. This is not your usual run of the mill car insurance that you are used to. Here car insurance is incorporated to the car insights technology that Xemplar provides.

This provides unique opportunities such as the ability to use insights data to calculate the accident risk of a given vehicle. This risk can then,for example, be used to calculate the premium that one has to pay instead of the usual one size fits all insurance that Zimbabweans have had to contend with thus far.
