Leeds, UK, 21 September 2015 – BigChange Apps has teamed up with mobile workforce tech company SmartWitness .
Entrepreneur Martin Port is to install 100,000 SmartWitness in-vehicle CCTV cameras over the next three years in a bid to help clients reduce costly insurance claims.
The cameras will be installed in the vehicles of Mr Port’s BigChange customers and will provide companies with court admissible video footage.
Mr Port has teamed up with SmartWitness in-vehicle CCTV cameras, which are highly rated by insurance companies, to add video functionality to his BigChange mobile workforce technology system.
SmartWitness evidence allows insurance claims to be filed in record time, which significantly reduces costs.
Insurers have found that just two per cent of incidents recorded on SmartWitness cameras result in disputed claims. This is against an industry norm of 40 per cent for all motor claims.
At the moment Leeds-based BigChange provides customers with tracking information about a driver’s harsh braking, acceleration and speed which is a powerful tool to enforce good driver behaviour, but video footage will transform the operation.
“In a lot of incidents involving near misses or an accident you get harsh braking and to have video proof of exactly what happened is absolutely vital,” said Mr Port.
“You can protect the driver and it’s encrypted so it’s admissible in court.”
