COOOOL! (yes i just wrote that)

With all the talk of Telematics in the Auto insurance world, Kanetix.ca has released an amazing application:

Kanetix has a FREE app to determine whether or not an individual driver would benefit from telematics.

Features
DriveSmart automatically records any motor-vehicle trip you take and will grade your driving on the most important components that will be looked at in usage-based insurance program.

Hands-free
The app is always on, so there’s no need to start and stop it. Just keep your phone in your pocket or your bag.

Scoring
DriveSmart automatically records any motor-vehicle trips you take. You can view the distance, duration, and score for each trip. Drivers with an average score over 70 are considered safer drivers, and will likely benefit from a usage-based insurance program.

Graphs
A progression graph that shows how your scores have changed.
Customizable time frames to view your scores, distance driven, average speed, and more.

Social
Badges that are earned for good driving techniques.

Battery use
The app consumes battery power, so nightly charging is recommended. With typical phone use, a smartphone running DriveSmart should have enough battery power to last all day.

Awareness Poll Global Results, 40 per cent of the data breaches in 2011 were at small to mid-sized companies.

Things that make one go hmmm …..

Professional Liability. Errors and Omissions, Malpractice – All common names for a very specific type of coverage: These are policies that people with specialized knowledge have to and should obtain when interacting with the general public because they are being sought out for that knowledge.

Whilst putting together some information for a client of mine, i came across some very interesting points about this coverage from one of the companies i work with: Trisura Guarantee Company :

Why Buy Insurance – especially for Professionals!

I encounter many people who run their business year in and year out without insurance and only approach the subject when it becomes a contractual obligation. While they may not be required or regulated to carry the insurance, doesn’t mean the risk isn’t present for them to be pulled into a suit for misrepresentation etc. Even BS suits (pardon my French) cost money to defend. So when you buy a policy, what is your money  buying (besides peace of mind)

Traffic Laws and you … did you know…?

So i was doing a little reading a while back and i found a neat little article in the local paper about traffic rules that exist and do not exist. The article was written by Joe Fantauzzi for the york region papers. I wanted to post this because some of these violations can lead to increases in insurance costs for you (should you be convicted).
