Appus Technology Limited (OmyCar)
The OMyCar platform connects drivers and shares real-time traffic information (e.g. speed cameras, traffic accidents, parking tickets). It integrates crowd-sourced information with navigation and has developed the feature 'Smart Navigation' – the ability to suggest alternate routes based on real-time traffic conditions. Secondly, the platform provides immediate Performance Feedback and a Reward Scheme to promote driving safety. There are missions to encourage drivers to drive better within the driving community on the platform. Drivers are shown feedback right after each trip. Completing missions will also earn drivers reward points, which can be used to redeem rewards on the platform. These features help to encourage drivers to drive better. Last, the platform provides Data Analytics. It helps analyze driving behavior and patterns to help determine appropriate discounts on insurance premiums for drivers – higher vs. lower risks, occasional drivers vs. routine drivers, desirable vs. undesirable habits, etc. Through the collection of the data and these features, new products can be co-developed with insurance partners around UBI (Usage Based Insurance).
