About OSeven

Car insurance companies charge flat insurance premiums without taking into consideration how people drive. Therefore, good drivers subsidize bad drivers. This is not fair, and this is what OSeven is committed to change. We have deployed a world class AI enabled infrastructure, mobile first, that determines the quality of driving and enables pay-how-you-drive insurance, discounts and rewards for safe drivers. Our solution is already rolled out across fleets even without in-car telematics embedded or any other hardware installation - just by using the smartphone as a recording engine. We currently work with leading insurance, ride-sharing, leasing and fleet management companies all over the world.
