Dubai, September 5, 2022 -- Unigaz Group, a multinational downstream oil and gas operator across the Middle East and Africa announced it signed a pilot agreement with Polysurance, a pioneer company working in computer vision-based risk analytics.
Unigaz which is championing the development of sustainable energy, and part of its ongoing commitment to drive down risk and driver safety, will experience Polysurance's AI dashcam and driver coaching tools to increase visibility into driver behaviour and proactively aim to prevent accidents before they occur.
"As an innovative company, we are delighted to be running this pilot with Polysurance to take our driver safety to the next level," said Zaher Zein, Chief Executive Officer at Unigaz. "Polysurance’s computer vision solution will help us to train, coach and monitor our drivers' health and safety to reduce the number of accidents we have.”
Polysurance’s solution uses AI-enabled dashcams to help customers like Unigaz, better understand and mitigate risk in real-time by detecting events including distracted driving, harsh braking, acceleration, cornering and tailgating. The platform helps to improve driver behaviour over time through audible in-cab alerts and feedback through the web portal. Fleet managers use this information to coach and protect drivers, lower operating expenses and negate unnecessary insurance claims.
"As oil and gas companies look to reduce risk and increase the safety of their operations, video-based solutions that leverage AI to automate the detection of high-risk behaviours will make a significant impact," said Cameron Tope, Founder and CEO of Polysurance. "We're delighted to be working with Unigaz and look forward to providing them with the insights and real-time data they need to keep their assets and drivers safe."
Unigaz will gain real-time visibility across its fleet, ensuring greater productivity through better planning, asset and equipment monitoring, and cost reduction. Unigaz will now also be able to defend drivers in real-time against fraudulent claims, protecting employees, the business and public safety.
Anwar Ahmad, Co-Founder and CPO at Polysurance, said, “We are truly thankful to Noria Capital for their support in reaching prospects in the Middle East region.”
“We can see that Polysurance offerings have enormous opportunities, in many regions around the world, and Noria always look to provide support and back up Insurtechs deploying their services in the Middle East and Africa” said Cillin O’Flynn, General Partner at Noria Capital, an insurtech venture capital fund. noriacapital.co
