CalAmp Expands Access to Crash Details with Automated Notifications & Online Reports

By Ken Briodagh May 31, 2018

According to a recent release, CalAmp, a technology solutions company, announced that its CrashBoxx vehicle risk management system and detailed collision information will be more widely available as an over-the-top service to its current and new telematics device customers. Going forward, CrashBoxx capabilities reportedly will be embedded in all compatible CalAmp devices, enabling customers to receive automated push notifications and CrashBoxx Portal access to near real-time accident reconstruction reports.

Broader access to CrashBoxx data will allow CalAmp's Telematics Service Provider (TSP) customers to provide timely assistance to drivers, expedite the repair process and analyze liability associated with collisions. When a collision occurs, an automated push notification will be sent in real time to the TSP account administrators notifying them of the relative location, date and time of a crash incident. The notification will provide a link to CalAmp's CrashBoxx Portal, with options to purchase dynamically generated reports encompassing details of the collision event in near real-time. Key report options include severity, force of the crash, direction of impact, speed prior to impact and other event data.  Report pricing will be dynamic and based on various criteria such as region, severity of crash and urgency of demand.

“Unlike most connected vehicle solutions, CrashBoxx is not based solely on accelerometer technology. It employs sophisticated proprietary algorithms at the edge device level and in the cloud that enable extremely reliable crash detection and reporting,” said Paul Washicko, SVP and GM, Software and Subscription Services, CalAmp. “Providing our customers access to valuable, near real-time post-crash data is really unrivaled in the telematics world. By broadening accessibility to CrashBoxx services, we are setting the stage for incremental over-the-top service revenue and data monetization opportunities. At the same time we are allowing our extensive TSP customer installed base to better manage risk and deliver differentiated service offerings to their end customers.”
