GPS Insight, a leading provider of SaaS-based fleet and field service management software solutions, today announced the commencement of a strategic partnership with Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual, America’s premier property and casualty insurance company dedicated to serving the lumber and woodworking industries. The partnership will provide vehicle and video telematics and safety solutions to its policyholders at a significant discount, reducing claims by up to 30%.

“Partnering with a mutual insurance company such as Pennsylvania Lumbermens that truly places the needs of wood product and building material policyholders before anything else is of the utmost importance for us,” said Julie Lawton, VP Strategic Partnerships at GPS Insight. “Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual has a 127-year track record of serving the best interest of lumber dealers, woodworkers and organizations that support the industry. Extending our safety solutions to equip their lumber fleet policyholders with the best tech on the market will support a culture of risk management and safety for employees.”

Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual places a premium on risk management. Customers can rest assured that they will always have access to the most useful, industry-specific knowledge and resources thanks to the loss control staff's considerable insurance expertise and in-depth knowledge of the lumber sector. With the ability to track and record data in real-time, telematics is the gold standard tool for fleet risk management.

“We see the value of everything GPS Insight can bring to our clients and are particularly excited about their focus on best-in-class technology, customer success, and adaptability with their partners,” said Jeff Hendershot, Loss Control Manager at Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual. “It is critical that you and your drivers make the commitment to avoid distractions while driving for the safety of everyone on the road. By implementing a safety strategy based on the proactive insights provided by telematics, drivers will have the ability to take remedial action in real time, which will increase safety, reduce accident costs, prove when drivers are not at fault, and reduce the at-fault incident rate.”

The partnership will launch with the full range of the GPS Insight fleet telematics solutions, spanning GPS Tracking, Driveri Protection, and Driveri Prevention.
